Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive

1 Answer

Just received from Circuit City online store, my WD500GB Externa

Received drive and connection cables, but didn't include CD software? Is it preinstalled on the drive, or do I need to contact Circuit City, so I can install it.?

Please advise,

Thanks.

The software is on the drive. Simply plug it in and check the current contents of the drive.

Alternatively - you can download available software for this drive here:
http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=101&lang=en


Incidentally, you do not need to"install" the drive. The drive will work out of the box and is most likely formatted for FAT32. If you need to change the format, just right click on the drive and select "Format" and choose the appropriate option. The software WesternDigital supplies is all extras. It's not necessary for the drive to work.

Good luck!

It keeps on asking for the product key


If you bought the Microsoft Office disc from an authorized retailer, it should have a yellow Product Key on the back of the box. This image should provide clarification:dwmcc.jpg

Sorry but cant find a product key for office 2007


Go back to the computer-store where you purchased a valid copy of the Microsoft software, taking all the packaging with you, and they will show you where the product-key was included with the purchase.

If you purchased it "online", you should have received an E-mail from the online seller, telling you the product-key. Check your E-mail.

Online: www.eBay.com

Any "big box" store: Office Depot, Radio Shack, Circuit City, Staples, Future Shop, Best Buy, Walmart, or even at some "Nothing Over A Dollar Stores" or maybe at a local "Thrift Store" or "Value Village".

Or, online, through the manufacturer's web-site: www.maxtor.com

Hopefully you kept copies of the rebate and receipt in case you have to prove it. I would contact the folks where I sent the rebate to. If you get no resolution this way, see if Circuit City would take care of you. I had this happen with a store online, and they gave me part of my rebate back and store credit and it wasn't even their screw up, and this was a year later. I would also Google and see if anyone else has had this issue on this deal.
