I now have a theory. I think the enclosure has a chip inside that only allows for FAT32 File system and therefore only allows for 128GB or "127.53 gigabytes" according to Wikipedia. Anyone able to confirm or deny this?
Like he said, the enclosure may be limited to 128 GB drives, because that is the limit of the chip.
That is possible. 48-bit LBA support necessary to recognize over 137GB came later, and some earlier enclosures did not have it. See if the WD website can confirm this in the unit's specs.
