My Western Digital external hard drive has been having some issues for a while whereby the connection on the HD has become loose meaning the HD disconnects on it’s own if it’s moved in the slightest way. I think the micro USB connection has disconnected so many times (without being ejected properly) something has broken and my MacBook Pro can’t now read the HD and a warning of “The device you have connected is not readable by this computer” (or words to that effect) appears. I did once have the HD working but like I said it’s disconnected so many time I believe something is stoping the HD being read.
I’ve got some things on the HD I need to remove and I’m not bothered about fixing it once I have them; I’ll simply throw the HD away.
Please can anyone help?
