I have a big issue with plugging in new My Passport Essential (500gb, blue):
MBP can’t recognize it at all
if MBP recognize it, it’s VERY EASY to unplug it by mistake
hdd quits without any reason
Running time machine on this drive is horrible
Basically it’s the same on PC and it doesnt matter if I ‘twist’ usb cable or not, all these issues (above) happens frequently and randomly.
Running time machine on this drive is impossible… I’m really disappointed, please let me know if there is any chance to solve it or should I send it back due to warranty?
