hi, recently i have purchased 4tb MY PASSPORT, i notice that there is constant humming sound(while active) and vibration too. I already have another 4TB one which almost have no vibration(atleast i don’t feel) and in audible humming sound. so is my new device corrupted or is it normal. WD diagnostic tool shows everything as fine.
It is recommended to run Quick Test and Complete Drive Test using WD Drive Utilities to diagnose the health of My Passport drive. Sometimes, the vibration of drive caused when the drive is not getting enough power to fully spin up. So it is recommend to check the drive on another computer also.
