Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
At the start, when I plug wd and work on it, everything is fine. But if I leave the wd plugged but not active (wd plugged but I'm not working on it) for some time then comes back to it, the computer starts to recognaize it again as a new plugged hard drive !!
This is making me crazy when I'm watching a movie saved in wd, when I pause the movie and after some time get back to it a click play, the media program closes and the computer starts to recognaize the HD as a new one.
what can I do?
I suggest you check the power management on the device. You can right-click the disk in the Device Manager and see if it is allowed to be powered off, or you can check the power settings in the control panel.
Most likely it is turned off, and when it resumes, the computer somehow thinks it was not plugged before.
