how would that work? the connector on this one looks too wide..
Physically, the connector is a non-proprietary combo usb 3.0 power/micro-usb. I have 2 WD drives with physically non-proprietary connectors, one just like this one and one mini usb 2.0. With both of them, when I try a generic cable it doesn't work reliably. Flaky connection at best. Now I stay away from all these and will only buy externals which are SATA drives removable from enclosures. Or I just use internal drives in purchased enclosures.
