    I'm not the most technological guy, so I'm hoping some of you can help me out; haven't found to much information through google.

    I have a 3TB Western digital hooked up to my Macbook Pro and its been working great, no problems whatsoever, the last two weeks. Today I go to get on the computer and I get an error screen saying its been disconnected and I should eject it before disconnecting etc. So I unplug it, plug it back in. I'm able to click on the drive, navigate through, even open up the Lightroom Catalog I've been working on, but within about 20 seconds it pops up again giving me the disconnection error. I've tried different usb ports and still the same thing.

    Hoping someone can shed some light on this for me.

    Thanks in advanced,

    Could be a faulty USB lead or port. Try a different one.
