My Book Essential Problem with USB 3.0 Communication

Hello everyone,

I bought an 3 TB My Book (WDBACW0030HBK) a few days ago, installed it and found out that there is a problem.

The My Book keeps randomly disconnecting itself than reconnecting back (very rapidly) mostly when I copy data on it, sometimes it even throws me a format dialog.

I updated the firmware thinking that this will fix my problem but same result, so I asked a friend who has the same model to test it on my computer and his My Book works fine I also tested my hdd with a different USB cable and no luck.

I have Windows 7 Home Edition x64

Replace it!!
