Western Digital My Passport Essential 250GB USB Portable External Hard Drive forum
I have been using this to backup my laptop and for general file storage, photos etc for about a year. It has always worked fine, however I am now getting an error saying the "one of the USB devices has malfunctioned" - has anyone else experienced this issue? And is it likely to be a fixable problem?
As far as I can make out the USB ports are working finewith other devices.
Could it have anything to do with attaching a different HDD to the laptop, as someone did this just before the problem arose in order to transfer some photos
