Default [Q] USB 3.0 mode not working

When I plug my N3 into a USB 3.0 port on my Windows 7 PC (using the cable that came with the phone), it works fine until I select the phone option to use USB 3.0 mode. At that point, my PC stops recognizing the phone (it disappears from Windows Explorer). Has anyone else had this problem, and does anyone know of a solution?

I had this happen to me earlier- I had to plug it into a different USB port while it was still in USB 3.0 mode. For some reason, sometimes when I switch it, it fails to enumerate the device ID. If you quickly plug it into a different USB 3.0 port, it will work. At least for me. YMMV!

Mine works and then randomly a few minutes later it is gone from the PC completely and if i am copying data it stops and i have to restart the connection.

Thanks, but that doesn't work for me.

Here's what happens, in more detail. I plug the phone into a front-panel USB 3.0 port. My PC's Windows Explorer then shows the phone as a Portable Media Player, and the phone says "Connected as a media device. Tap for UDB 3.0 and other options". I tap and then set the checkbox for "Media device (USB 3.0), selecting "Use USB 3.0". At that point, the phone immediately vanishes from Windows Explorer, and the USB "Connected as Media Device" notification also vanishes.

In contrast, when I plug the phone into a rear-panel USB 3.0 port, it never connects at all. It does vibrate briefly to show it knows it was plugged in. But neither the PC nor the phone itself gives any other indication of the connection.

Update: I found a different (Intel) rear USB 3.0 port that works. Apparently it's just finicky about what port to connect to. (All drivers on my PC are up-to-date, though.) I haven't tried any file transfers yet, but the phone notification says "Connected as USB 3.0 Media Device", and the PC Windows Explorer shows the phone and can list its files.

This is what happened to me when I plugged in to my front 3.0 port the phone would have the charging icon at the top but would not show connected to USB 3.0 port not pull down menu just showed charging if I put into 2.0 ports USB notification pops right up. So I thought my phone was bad and exchanged it and the same thing happened. So I then turned to the PC I went to my laptop which is a Dell with Intel chipset and i7 plug it in and it was recognized right away pull down menu and 3.0 option showed. So off to the store I went while I was there talked to one of the techs and he told me that ASMedia 3.0 controller on the boards where having problems Intel and AMD now I was on track as I have a AMD Sabertooth 990fx board so I did two thing I picked up a M5A99fx Pro 2.0 and a I/O PCI Express 3.0 card one I got had a different controller than AsMedia on it and got lucky and found one that also had a 20 pin port on the card so I could plug my front port cord to the card and it would give me access to the front ports on my tower. I installed the new mother board and the same thing happened then I put the PCI Express card in and hooked my 20 pin cord up and now I have usb 3.0 on the front but the board's ports still won't work with the phone also I tested other flash drives and USB 3.0 drives and it seems that what the tech said is true with my setup AsMedia is have problems with their controller! The PCI Express card is the Vantec one UGT-PC345 and it has then Renesas USB 3.0 Controller on it. I have since went back to my Sabertooth board and returned the M5A99fx my board is just fine just had to ad the card to get 3.0.

I dont know if its related but the issue i have is that when i tap the usb 3.0 option, my phone connects and disconnects over and over about 5 times at whic point it goes back to MTP.

Also, i forgot to add... when it stops all the connecting and disconnecting, i get the message that no software was found. I installed Kies, but its the same thing. This is windows 8.
