Your rear USB are directly connected with your motherboard, but your front USB are cable connected via motherboard to case [front USB].

Check the cables. Probably a failure there. Plus, even if your mobo supports USB3, your case may well only support USB2. There may also be a driver issue, look for latest mobo drivers.

It's also not an uncommon problem on USB drives especially USB powered ones.
