I'm on a Fedora Core 14 machine with a Asus Systemboard that has 2 USB 3.0 ports. I purchased a Western Digital 'My Book Essential' hard drive that has USB 3.0 support. In fact, it only has a USB 3.0 Cable, no regular cable.
When I plug the drive into the USB 3.0 port of my FC 14 machine, it doesn't mount. In fact, there's no message of any kind in 'dmesg'. If I plug the drive into a USB 2.0 port, it works fine, however data transfer speeds are only that of USB 2.0: about 25 mbytes/second.
I've asked this question before, but nobody answered. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Does Fedora support USB 3.0 drives? Does anyone know why my 3.0 drive won't mount as a 3.0 drive? Am I asked the wrong question?
