  1. New 4TB WD External HDD May Come With Defected USB Cable - Hell Corner


    There is something I want to hint that might surprise the lot of you , I have lately purchased three 4 TBs hard drive of Western Digital (The non Ultra colorful ones) , after migrating my data to which from various other lower capacity external and internal drives on attempting to replug 2 of them back they were unrecognized and appeared similar to this screen (Snapped from a post on this forum) in Manage window :

    New 4TB WD External HDD May Come With Defected USB Cable - Hell Corner [​IMG]

    Before I freak out I managed to replace the cable of both drives in turn with that of the still working one and they instantly read everything . I managed to call it today and replaced both of the new drives cables by older drives ones . I haven't talked about it really here in forum since I thought probably everybody know that trouble shooting external HDDs failures start by recommending trying different ports and cables . However I saw someone asking for help with similar case where they were immediately directed to data recovery suites . So beware that "yes they are not making them as they used to" and the answer may still be the obvious .
