My WD Passport reads very slow


#1

Hi all,

My WD Passport suddenly read very slow from 10-20MB/s to only ~1MB/s, and when I connected to PC, the PC took a few minutes to recognize the HDD. Is there any problem with my WD Passport?

Thanks for any support ideas from you guys!

It is advisable to scan your drive for errors:

If the drive passes all the test, then try a different cable.

Yes, it is advisable to replace the drive.

Contact WD and RMA the device:
