Do not buy this cord for WD Elements hard drive on xbox one x. Any game I would install would stop for no reason after starting and the notification "external drive ready" would come up every 10 seconds. Also the games I have installed would disappear from my library. It would not let me install anything on my external. I went back to the original cord my WD came with and everything is fine. I guess this cord is more for charging devices but it says all over the description that it supports WD elements. That's false advertising because it almost ruined my WD. I'm just glad this garbage was only 8 bucks.
This is a special usb cable for certain USB Hard Drives. These USB hard drives have connections that are not your typical USB or micro USB connectors. My cable that came with the drive either got lose or is currently blending with the multitude of other black cables that run around my system. I bought the cable for it's distinctive red color. The box came with two cables, a smaller one that is around 10-12" and a larger one that is 28-36" long (I am not that good at estimating and don't have a ruler or tape measure handy) The small cable worked well on a recent trip to Europe, and the longer one is handy for plugging it in to the back of a desktop computer. Very nice and high quality design.
Nice usb 3.0 cables. These are replacements for the OEM cables for my external hard drives. These are even better than the original ones. The cables are made of a superior material and seem like they will stand the test of time. Look great and match my other peripherals. The data transfer does not let down either. The extra length cable is an added bonus as the originals are only about 6 inches. Thanks for A great product!
Do NOT get the amazon choice ones! They are terrible, as most amazon choice items are. Get these cables instead. They are nice braided cords with nice rubber guards where the cable meets the connector. They work well and shipped quickly. If you are hesitant thinking that these might be another chinese scam on here, they aren't. These are probably the best cables of this type on amazon.
Description says Compatible with WD. Currently using WD My Passport as an External HD for my PS4 and it does not work. The HD is undiscoverable or unrecognized by the platform. There would be instances that it does but it does not allow me to download any game data....durable cords but that’s about it.
Arrived sooner than expected and I love them! I was afraid my external drive was dying, but before I totally panicked, I decided to try a new cable. I lucked out! With this cable, my drive is working as good as ever and because this cable is reinforced by the plugs, I expect it will last a long time. I use the long cable for everyday and will use the shorter one for travel. A very good purchase indeed!
Have 2 Xbox systems connected to 2 different WD MyBook 4TB drives and started having issues with the consoles seeing the drives were connected. Before buying new drives decided to give a new set of cables a try and these work perfectly. Both systems instantly recognized the hard drives and downloaded a few games to test and the speed for me was the same as the original cable not much less as some have said. Unlike some negative reviewers I was aware that the cables were 2 different lengths(I actually read the description...imagine that) which was exactly what I needed for how my setup was. Will purchase again if ever needed.
These are nicely made and come in two lengths -- I found this to be very nice for replacing the basic ones which came with my portable drives. I feel this is a fine purchase for anyone who wants something bright and easy to find, while still resistant to cats and other pets mischief...
These are the cables that make your day. They are perfect for connecting peripheral devices to a laptop, a desktop or even a tablet computer. External drives connect with no stress. They are pliable, not bulky or over-sized or non-bendable like many cables. I believe that both the computers and the peripherals will last longer using these high quality cables.
I gave this 3 stars because it doesn't always work. I have Windows 10 latest serv pac as of Feb 21. The blue ray player is seen but software can not be accessed. I compare this with the cable that came with the bluray player which works 100% of the time. Maybe it has to do with the electronics in the cable?
