I have a MyBook Essential 3TB Ext. HDD with USB 3.0 which I have had for a little over a month that has operated problem-free when I got the “Failure To Properly Remove Device” box on my Mac. I’m sure it is the USB 3.0 connector because it does not fit very securely in the port on the enclosure and all I did was slightly bump that connector while it was powered on to my computer and it gave me the error. I have come to expect nothing but quality from WD so this is likely a poor design feature of the USB 3.0 cable.
I may need to get a new enclosure for my HDD and I have no idea which ones are compatible or how to ascertain that from the components. I just need some help in determining the correct one.
