Enclosures for WD Red Pro 4TB HDD

I bought a 4TB WD Red Pro NAS Hard Drive that I’d like to use as an external drive via USB connection to my desktop.

I bought the Sabrent enclosure but it appears not to be compatible. Can anyone recommend proven enclosures what would work well with the 4TB WD Red Pro NAS Hard Drive? I am not ready to use the device on the network or invest in a RAID box.

Hi @FourEyedLady,

Have you opened a Support Case? If not opened, for more information, please contact the WD Technical Support team for the best assistance and troubleshooting:

I realize it’s been a while since you posted this, and probably have resolved your issue, but in case you haven’t, I’ve had really good luck with StarTech products and I have one of their black USB 3.0 enclosures ( $40.00 on Amazon ) a housing a WD 8TB black. I’m sure it would work with your drive as well.
