I forgot to mention the Western Digital hard drive has always been slow to actually show up, and I’ve always gotten those "COMRESET failed, link is slow to respond" messages since I bought it.

And two details I forgot to mention about the hard drives:
1 The Toshiba hard drive that works is formatted with GPT.
2 The Western Digital hard drive that doesn't work with linux 4.15+ is formatted with MBR.
And just for the record, usb flash drives formatted with MBR work just fine on linux 4.15.
