Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
So I have a WD 500gb My Book and the problem I have is It will randomly disconnect and reconnect to my computer, thus reloading all the files, and if I'm watching something off of it, it obviously gets interrupted.
I can also cause it to happen if I just touch the USB wires in the back of my comp near its plug.
Also some of my high def files that are .mkv won't go onto the drive because I get a memory full error, even though there is 250gb of space.
Thanks in advance
This isn't everyday hdd. This is for backup.
Primarly: change usb cable!
Try reinstalling usb driver, and scan PC with some good AV.
Check your power cord also.
