WD 3TB drive - cannot be powered externally
Anyone come across this before?
I resilvering my home RAID box replacing 3TB drives with 4TB and was about to fire up gparted to extend the drives when I found I couldn't access either 3TB drive using a USB 3 SATA-USB bridge.
Gparted and Linux wouldn't recognise, and Windows not even diskpart could clean it.
Final check I plugged it in my PC directly - and hey presto. All the data is there.
Strange thing is the USB 3 SATA bridge came with a 2TB HDD!

Assuming you are running 8/8.1? Maybe the 4TB has 4k sectors?
