Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Wd passport I have a brand new Western Digital Passport. I am a photographer and paid 199.00. The first three days I plugged it in to my PC. My PC recognized it. NOW my PC does not recognize it AT ALL. I did not move it. I did not drop it. It has been setting in the same position. How do I solve this problem? I used my credit card (Office Max) but lost my receipt. I would like to remedy the situation since I have files (only a few) on the drive.

Exactly the same problem I faced... try to replace your USB cable. It worked for me.

Why wont my Western Digital WD Passport 250GB Portable Drive 250 GB Hard Drive work?


Several possibilities:

* bad USB port in your computer (try another USB port)
* messed-up copy of Windows (try connecting to a different computer)
* damaged USB cable between computer and the Passport (replace it)
* bad disk-drive inside the enclosure (replace it)
* bad USB-to-disk-drive adapter (buy a new "empty" enclosure)

Check the warranty on it, to see if W.D. will replace it, at minimal cost to you. If the warranty has expired, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- buy a new Passport through their web-site, and you qualify for a discount on your purchase.

At start up I keep getting this annoying error " WDDM Service Not Running." How do I turn that off? And, no I do not have the WD Passport hooked up all the time. Thanks, Kim


this is a Western Digital message. Best bet is to uninstall WD stuff and reinstall. It occurs because you don't have it hooked up. You can also go to START; MSCONFIG; and turn it off there. Look for WD programs and un check them.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

I accidentally droppped my brand new 320gb WD Passport now it isn't working it lights up & it has a tick sound then stops spinning...pls help.. :(


Most likely you have damaged the actual harddrive, the ticking sound is NOT A GOOD HARDDRIVE SOUND! Contact western digital and tell them that your NEW harddrive is making this sound out of the box DO NOT MENTION DROPPING IT. They should RMA it as long as you really did just buy it.
