I have used this software and it worked. Paragon Partioning Magic http://www.download.com/Paragon-Partition-Manager/3000-2248_4-10070089.html Apparently the space on the WD was unformatted and unallocated, so it wasn't visible. After partitioning it, formatting it and allocating a drive letter, it workds like a charm.
