My Book 6TB External USB Drive - disk type?


What type of disk is inside the My Book 6TB External USB Drive? What’s it’s speed? 7200 rpm?


Hi philostow,

We can’t confirm the internal hard drive model, data interface, rotational speed, or cache size inside the external hard drive enclosure. The internal hard drive in an external enclosure could be either SATA or native USB, depending on the external hard drive model.

Doesn’t answer the question.


We’re lucky if it’s an WD drive at all!!!


Wow. Not surprising since WD won’t divulge any info about the drive. Sleazy. Thanks.
