Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
Western Digital Passport USB drive loses connection. I have tried new USB cables, some USB cables work better than others none are perfect. It continues to drop the connection. The drive is on my desk and stable. The cables is not loose. Is it a problem with the drive or do I need a special cable?
Look up how to remove the drive from the enclosure on you-tube
it is easy and safe.
one of the removal videos also shows how to remove the USB-SATA adabter (it is really a sata drive). The removal is easy.. just pull it off.
You then have SATA ports.. just plug the drive into your computer through a SATA port and then you can access your data.
It is most likely the USB adapter that is broken (they break easily).
IDK if you can find a new one.
