The -U drive is not UHD-capable. It doesn't matter if you pull it out of the enclosure and put it in your computer; the hardware drive is different from the other "BW16" drives.

Do not try flashing it, because there aren't any compatible images to flash.

Also, forum search function works:

Use it before you brick your drive (or any other drive model) you try to flash. Compatibility for this drive has been discussed dozens of times over already. It could save you a lot of headaches.
