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