USB Drive not being recognized on T710 Server

I have a T710 that we are running daily backups on. The external USB drive is a 2 TB Western Digital My Passport.
When the USB drive is not recognized a reboot is required, after the reboot it will show up but then once the next hard drive is put in it will not see it.
I have tried different drives, different times of the day to run it, and formatting the drives
BA is up to the latest version
this is Server 2012r2 - has anyone encountered this before?

Nobus -

I have had two different issues
One - We will not see the drive and it will NOT show up in the device manager both in the regular view and in the hidden view
Two - It will show up with a bing like the driver did not intall properly. I have refreshed the bing to find the drivers. This has worked once but thats it.

Thank you everyone. My predecessor posted this question and this process is no longer an issue.
