USB 3.0 Docking Station won't work on Windows 8 PC

I have a Sony Vaio Ultrabook with one usb 2.0 and one usb 3.0 port. I am now running Windows 8 and my new USB 3.0 plugable docking station is working well on the usb 2.0 port but it is not recognized on the USB 3.0 port. I connected one of my usb 3.0 Western Digital hard drives and it shows up in the file explorer. Can you hellp me get the docking station working on the 3.0 port? Thanks.
