I have a GA-X99P-SLI motherboard. I used Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and when I used Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Thunderbolt Adapter, Sierra 10.12.2 show this alert "Cannot Use Thunderbolt Accessory".

You need to do Thunderbolt firmware update under Windows. This is working now.

I have the same problem with a sound card (Apollo 8p in Thunderbolt 2). I used Thunderbolt 2 to USB C adapter to connect my sound card to my hackintosh. jabba559thqm, have you managed to solve your problem?

Thank's a lot for your help.
