Why is My Book 8 TB vibrating loud? While all others (2-4TB) don't. Anyone experienced something similar?

Hi all,

I have 4 WD External drives running… 2x My Book (4TB) - both working fine. 1x Passport (2TB) - also fine. But the latest My Book (8TB) keeps on vibrating. Once plugged in and every time when accessed. Always clearly to be heard and even felt when working. Anyone who experienced something similar? Is it known or even ‘normal’?

Thanks for your help
