I lost the installation cd for my western digital external hard drive how can i install it without the cd

Without the model# of your drive, I can only get you as far as the Western Digital Support Downloads portal page (link below). When you get there, be a little patient using their site and track doen the driver download for your model. Download it by saving it to your desktop and then install it from there.

After that, you should be able to connect hte drive and start using it.

Want directions on how to backup to western digial external hard drive. We use microsoft vista and we have a 500gb external drive.

This may vary, depending on the software you use, but if it's Vista backup and restore, follow the steps below:
  1. Open Backup and Restore Center by clicking the 'Start' button, clicking 'Control Panel', clicking 'System and Maintenance', and then clicking 'Backup and Restore Center'.
  2. Click 'Back up files', and then follow the steps in the wizard (during this process, you will be given an option to select the destination for your backup - Browse for the WD drive in my computer and select it). You will also be given the option to select which files you would like to backup - You can either select everything or you can select specific folders (an option for browsing will be available), you may want backed up. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Hope this helps.

1.I will suggest you please partitioned it properly.

2. Check your Registry. Some times people use to FIX Registry for Reading multiple Partitioned External Drive.
3. You must require partition.

4. Have you check the cable which was supplied with the HD. As other cable may not support properly.

If you are using a pre-Windows xp system you may need to install specific drivers for your HD. If you run xp or Vista Try disconnecting completely the power cable from your computer for five minutes and then plug it back to the power and restart it. I know it sounds weird, but sometimes usb mass storage devices suffer troubles caused by electrostatic charges.

Lost the cd

Just plug it in, I don't believe they have a cd, when you plug them into the computer, the drive should be mounted automatically and you'll find software on the drive.
