A day ago I bought the new Passport external HD and I have huge problems with the cable that was in the package. The USB cable on the side of the HD is very sensitive on moving. Even the smallest move of the cable disconnects the disk from the computer. I read a lot of complaints, but got no proper fix for the problem. Will I have to return the HD and get the portable of some other company?
Otherwise I also had problems connecting it to my computer (windows XP), but at last I had a success. The reason for not connecting was the USB 4 port bridge I was connecting too. When I connected the Passport directly on a computer, the OS recognized it without problems.
