Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue
The drive itself passes all the Smart tests.
It will spin up no problem and allows you to read/ write files without corruption.
The firmware is the latest available .
I have monitored heat…and put drive vertically with access to 15C air flow.
I have changed power supply to a 5 Amp supply with no ther drives attached.
Windows log file show an error for the NTDLL.DLL File.
I have tried swapping to other computers and laptops and the fault still follows.
I have tried swapping cables and fault still follows
I have tried different OS but fault still follows
I have tried different powered USB , root and hubs and the fault still follows.
WD will only direct you back to the data lifeguard diagnostic which it passes everytime. Any ideas anyone?
