Basically he regression tested many permutations of devices, cables, ports, rebooting, etc.
I had a similar problem, and found it hard to track down as it was intermittent. In the end it was not 1 but 2 USB cables being not completely reliable.
So the warning can use some improvement:
- sometimes it is not a device but a cable
- it doesn’t indicate on which USB port this happens

Need to check this out in the summer: see if there is PCIe SSDs available for my Late 2013 Retina MacBook Pro.
Newer-generation 13″ and 15″ Retina MacBook Pros use newer SSDs with faster PCIe connectors. As of early 2015, no third-party SSDs are compatible with this standard, but we’re expecting to see options hit the market closer to the middle of the year. Some Retina MacBook Pro SSDs will apparently be capable of achieving speeds in the 1.2GB/second range, compared with the 700-800MB/second speeds of stock drives.

This is apparent through the use of the tool “fseventer” which monitors what files on your hard drive are being accessed.
