Had to open the case on my Western Digital “My Passport” drive tonight. You might remember, that I talked about the drive previously.
Well the drive sucks, and here’s the proof:
Yes, it’s a permanent USB interface. In other words, Western Digital took a perfectly good SATA drive, and bastardised it with a permanent USB adapter.
So, if I wanted to remove the drive from it’s case because it’s got an error I could fix with Spinrite, I can’t.
No SATA interface = no way to connect it directly to my computer.
Never ever again will I buy Western Digital equipment.
