If your WD Passport is formatted in FAT32, there is a limit on the file size that can be loaded. You need to reformat your Passport to use NTFS format.

Typically this is because there aren't large enough fragments to load. Run defrag several times and try again. You might also run the cleanup program and remove any temporary files, temporary internet files and anything in your waste basket before you run defrag.

Please let me know how this turns out.

I backed up data w/ WD Passport External Hard Drive, and when finished my computer's free hard drive space went from 115 gigs to 11. What happened, and how can I fix this?


What could have happened is that you backed up your drive onto itself. Check your external and see if it's still empty. If you named the backup, search for that name and remove it. If not, retrace your steps right until the beginning of the backup and see what location the software stores the file then remove it.
Worst case scenario you can always use the windows restore utility and go back 1 day before you ran the backup.
Good Luck

My WD Elements won't let me store more then 300 GiG, even though the properties menu says I have 600 GiG left to store on. Comes up with an error message saying the disc is full.


Well, if it's a 320GB model, it's usable capacity will be around 300GB and that's it.
In the drive's properties, what's the percentage of used vs. total capacity?
Perhaps you are have compression turned on that reports higher capacity than actual? With music and video files, which don't compress at all practically, this is useless.
Also chances are, that you are misreading the free space information, look closely at the units in which it's shown.

Need to increase size of split hard drive


I would say the best way is to compress your files on your selected drive by going to my computer right clicking on the drive that you want to increase the capacity, click properties, then the tools tab. U should be able to defrag, compress from there. But I am pretty possitibe that the 15 gig drive is for backup of files for your computer incase the bigger drive crashes.

Hooking up the WD Passport to a USB enabled CD/DVD player possible?


hmmm...it may just be a capacity and interface issue, with the flash drive being more 'accessible' through the USB interface than the wd passport.

Big issue..is the WD on USB 2.0, and the CD/DVD on USB 1.0?
