I have several WD My Passport 1TB HDDs. One of them (a WDBBEP0010BRD-01) has started causing my laptop’s USB support to stop, meaning that after a period of time my wireless mouse doesn’t respond and the drive stops being visible. Device Manager lists error codes 43 and 45. (I can quote the error messages if that’s useful.) I have to reboot each time and all is fine for a while.
The drive passes the tests in Data Lifeguard Diagnostics. What can be the problem and is the drive toast?
