I have a strange situation here. I got a new Toshiba P850/04P laptop, there are 4 USB 3.0 ports, 2 on the right and 2 on the left.
When I plug my WD 1TB Passport Essential into the 2 ports on the left, the drive keeps disconnecting and then connecting again, on and off. Sometimes it works well for 1 hour and then disconnects and even shows the "please format your drive" message.
What is odd is:
- this WD 1TB Passport Essential works perfectly on those 2 ports on the right side.
- It has been working fine on all other PCs and laptops.
- Another 500 GB WD passport can work with the USB ports on the left (the ones 1TB can not), also all other devices can work with all 4 ports.
I am really confused! Does anyone know what the problem could be?
