I/O device error

I just got my WD MyBook Essential USB 3.0 2TB external storage.

I have only USB 2.0 on my PC but I guess that  should not be a problem.

When I try to format the device I got I/O device error.

Picture about that.


Any solutions for my problem?

Try using another USB cable to see if the USB cable you currently have is defective.-
