I have a Western Digital 1TB USB 3.0 Hard Drive which works perfectly on any USB port on my laptop.
I then bought an Inateck external caddy for a 500GB drive I removed from a PS4.
If I plug the external into a USB 2.0 it's fine, but on a USB 3.0 port, the drive keeps disconnecting and reconnecting ever few seconds?
I changed the cable to the Western Digital cable and that worked fine, so is it likely to be a dodgy cable I got with my caddy? Seems weird how it'd cause this issue but be fine in a USB 2.0 port?
Any ideas? Thanks.
