Drive Disconnects From USB When I try To Save Files To My Book


This has just started happening. When I try to download a file from the internet and save it to my external drive it makes that disconnect/recoonect sound from the usb and it cant save. I have even tried saving files to the desktop and then copying and it does the same thing. It is a 1 TB My Book had it a little more than a year. Do you think its on its way out, and needs to be replaced. 

Hi there, if I were you I’d check that drive for errors and change the USB cable just in case…
