I thought maybe it was something to do with the bios, I even reset it, the strange thing is, everything works fine on the ports at the back of the machine.
so this morning, I took the side of the machine off, just to see if there is anything wrong with the USB3 cable, they are awful things the internal USB 3 sockets, but all seems ok, I swapped it from the mother board to the connection on my USB 3 card, but still did the same thing, I even tried some different USB 3 ports I got for my brothers machine, before I got him a different case. Still, no go, still at least now I have four USB3 sockets on the front of machine instead of 2.
Like it is not a big problem, I still have USB 2 on the front as well, but even my mouse dongle would not work on the front USB 3 ports.
It is strange that both me and my brother seems to be having the same problem, but saying that My brother have only used it with a SD card reader and that could be a strange Chinese thing.
I thought it did work with Linux, but I tried it again and it still has the same problem with linux. i know MS can change certain things in the UEFI via Windows 10, so I don't know if that have happened, but it seems to be since i installed windows 10 2004.
Oh yes, I can't even boot the machine using a USB2 device in the front USB3 ports. eiother, the bios will not even see the device.
All very strange, as I said not a problem as still have the front USB 2 ports, but I am slowly changing all my USB2 stick to USB 3 anyway as they were only cheap plastic Lexar ones and the plastic is starting to fail on some of them.
Desktop machine Ryzen powered with windows 10 , reluctantly.
