I have a seagate 4tb external slim hard drive and it was working fine but as Im transferring some large files to the hard drive

I get this error where its saying the device malfunctioned and the port is asking for more power than its allowed and then the drive isnt even readable

I recall this happened a while ago when I didnt use this drive for a while but after like a week it was fine

Whats causing the issue and how can I fix it?

IDeally would love to add a 10tb drive to my desktop but idk how to do that either :(

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I didnt even know that was a thing, I googled the difference between the USB's and found out my desktop has ONE usb3 one and my external is using USB 3 and ITS WORKING!!!

But it doesn't seem to work with my macbook's connector still? (it was working fine before)

Thank you so much for that question lmao
