Hey there, I went through this issue before and this is what you can do, test a different cable, different computer, perhaps a desktop, if the drive works fine in other computers you can make sure you run all the Windows updates try connecting it directly to the laptop and if the issue is only with the laptop you might need a cable that WD Support can provide you, call them if none of the above help you with the issue and request a power booster cable.
