An unexpected error occurred (error code -50)


Recently I’ve been having issues with My Passport, over the weekend (3/11/17) I had to repair it, now it’s giving me the “An unexpected error occurred (error code -50)” error. Earlier today (3/13/17) I was using it and saving to it fine from another Mac computer. I’m not sure if it’s because I updated my OS on my main computer and the other one is out dated or not.

Anyone have any ideas or tips on how to fix this issue other than going out and buying a new one?



I recommend you to try to connect the drive to a different USB port. Also, make sure you have “read and write” privileges from the drive permissions.


I realized my mistake after I sent this out, the usb multiport needs a power source and I forgot to plug it in.

Thanks again
