I have a problem with a recently, yesterday the 23rd, external WD Elements SE 4tb hdd.
When i plug it into my front usb 3.0 ports, it keeps randomly disconnecting and reconnecting. the first time i plugged it in in gave me a error message, “the h: drive in inaccessible, the parameter is incorrect”. It hasn’t displayed that message again, but every time i plug the drive into either front usb 3.0 port (theres 2) it repeatedly connects and disconnects.
So far, i have tested the hdd on two other PC’s in my house and it detects and works fine. I ran a SMART test and it passed. i also tried different USB thumb drives / hdds /mice on the both front usb 3.0 ports and theyre ok too.
everything works fine in every configuration except this new WD elements se 4tb drive in the front 2 USB3.0 ports. The back of the pc works, as does the monitor hub
Im running Win 10 64bit, latest updates, asrock z87 extreme motherboard.
