Just after copying copious amounts of data on to my WD My Passport Wireless 2 TB drive, I disconnected and tried reconnecting to a different PC and the red solid light on the battery and power LED came on.
Immaterial of what I do- charge the battery from the power source, connect it to USB ports or even try changing the USB cables, the red solid light seems to stay on.
No computers seem to pickup the USB device and it doesn’t turn on the battery operated mode as well. Pretty much non-responsive when OFF.
Would this be a problem with the PCB? In which case, I could still attempt to use it on an external casing.
UPDATE: When I connected to a USB 2 Port of a computer, it seems to work without any problems. All my efforts earlier were on USB 3, USB 3.1 ports with one including a Dell USB A to C adapter. But I still don’t understand why the light came on when connected to the power source directly.
