Welcome to the Community.

If this a WD SmartWare WD My Book then replacing the controller may not be a good idea as they device’s firmware could be incompatible, not to mention it will void the warranty.

I’d recommend contacting WD Support about this. If your device is under warranty then they’ll provide you with a free replacement.
