Go into your computers BIOS screen. (on most computers, press F2 or the Delete key to get into the BIOS) and remove USB from your Startup list. Different Bioses preform this different ways so I can't tell you how to make sure this happens but trust me, it's in there.

Is this a plug and play drive?


In most computers that are encountered, devices that are plugged into the USB ports are "plug & play" capable. There are numerous scenarios that can turn this function off inadvertantly such as a virus, data corruption or driver changes. In order to fix the issue and make an external device, such as a Western Digital Passport Elite hard drive "plug & play" capable, a user will have to make a few system changes. Click "Start" and "Run," then type gpedit.msc Click on "Administrative Templates," from the tree then click on the "System" folder. Double click on "Turn off Autoplay." Select the "Disabled" option and ensure it applies to all drives. Hope this helps,
