I’ve seen this problem meantion all over the Interwebs about the G-Drive Mobiles, and since I’ve owned this G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD 1TB (2 yrs, since they were first introduced, it’s always had trouble maintaining connectivity through Thunderbolt 3. Was hoping it would go away when I got a the newest Macbook Pro (mid-2020, running Catalina), but it still continues disconnect & reconnect and repeat that cycle intermittently. When it stays connected, the drive can easily maintain as a 4K video source, but continuing to disconnect in the middle of video data usage means that it cannot be used in this capacity. Super frustrating. I should note, this happens with NOTHING else connected to the other 3 Thunderbolt 3 ports on the Macbook Pro, so I don’t think it’s a bus power issue.
NOTE: I have two OwC Thunderbolt 3 SSD that NEVER have this issue. So it’s definitely specific to the G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD.
Any ideas out there, or threads with a solution?
