  • mga sir, magtatanong po, pwede na din po ba ipa-warranty ang hard drive na kumakatok/my parang sumasabit kahit na ok at gumagana pa naman? meron kasi ako wd elements 2tb na nabili abroad, wala pa siya 1year. kapag ginagamit/nagsave ako ng mga files, meron parang sumasabit kapag hinawakan ko siya, pero wala naman tunog, kapag dinikit ko lang ang tenga ko meron mahina tunog.

    thanks in advance...

    try checking the portable drive with another (newer PC with good USB 3.0 port). Some PCs or laptop's USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ports may not supply enough power to power those USB portable drives. In my experience, I have encountered a motherboard's USB port sometimes does not properly power up a USB portable drive (will cause errors like it was disconnected/reconnected). May na-encounter ako na ganitong motherboard which is already a 3 years old motherboard (I'm pretty sure when it was brand-new, it didn't have this problem, nung tumanda na yung motherboard tsaka naging ganun -- possibly a motherboard voltage regulator issue, kasi wala naman akong nakitang visble bloated capacitors). Although I've experienced this problem on another system which is just about to be 2-years old pa lang, naging ganun na rin yung USB port niya (some portable drives can be used without issues, but others will not properly power up).
  • help po bigla nalang hinde ma detect yung WD elements ko na 500gb? :(
    tried to unplug and replug using different ports pero ganun padin.
  • Elements and Passport.
    WD Elements 500GB - after a week - naging defective. Bumabagal yung read/write niya until bytes na lang. Ni-return ko sa retailer na binilhan ko. Got replaced after a week with a new sealed unit.
    WD My Passport Essential SE 750GB - after a year-and-a-half - nagkaroon ng bad sectors. Hirap kumopya at usually naco-corrupt yung files during file transfer. Pina-RMA ko sa may ServCARE. Got a replacement immediately - a recertified of the same unit and storage size. Ni-register ko yung unit ko sa WD support site to check its warranty at nakita ko na na-extend ng 2 months from my recently replaced drive. Natuwa ako. Nag-send pa ako ng e-mail sa WD support para i-confirm kung na-extend nga talaga yung warranty ng hard drive ko - sabi oo daw. Pero pagka-check ko kanina - hindi na ganun. Same na ng recently replaced drive ko yung warranty expiration. Sayang din yung 2 months of assurance :(
    Last is my WD My Passport 2TB - got it from Amazon. So far - walang issues aside from its rubber feet na natanggal :/

    Out of 3 WD drives that I owned - 2/3 got replaced and 1/3 still going strong :D
  • also got that 500gb passport white from amazon(used in xbox)...and 1tb black passport(used in media player)...1 year and still no issues...
