Well, that IBM is from 2004, the usb port and drivers is to old for the WD 320 who requries USB 2.0. Thats why your IBM dosent recognize it, your IBM getting wrong signal from the WD thrue the old usb port.
I dont think you gona make those items to work properly togher M8, sorry

Need driver & software


The Driver and software are built in, Stored on the WD it's self..
all you need to do is plug it in. It is a plug and play device.

WD Passport is not supported on XP or Vista 64bit
Xp and Vista do not put enough power to the usb ports to fire up the drive.
there is a cable you can get from WD that plugs into 2 USB ports to solve this issue.

I tried to format my 500gb WD passport essential with exfat using windows 7 for my mediastar pvr . Now neither pvr or windows 7 can see the harddrive


Windows 7 does _NOT_ support 'exfat' drives, as you have found out.
You can "format" the drive, to use 'FAT32' or 'NTFS' file-systems.

Xp not recognizing my 250gb WD passport


The Western Digital My Passport line, besides the Essential Series, is originally formated for a Mac (in the HFS+ format) and as such cannot be read by Windows PCs. You can either get a program to read the External such as Macdrive, or format it to NTFS or FAT32; formats that are readable by Windows. I would recommend formatting it to NTFS, because you can only transfer up to 4 Gigabyte files to FAT32, while NTFS is nearly limitless.

WD Passport (External Hardrive) Not being read by computer at all


If the usb hub is not recognizing the external drive it means you may need to install the hub drivers for your pc. Especially if you're running XP since xp finds the drivers own its own. Go to control panel, click on add hardware. Make sure the device is connected to the pc. Go to Device Manager, scroll down till you see yellow symbols or question marks. Highlight the yellow ?'s click next and Voila it will tell you what is missing. Hope this helps.

Good Luck =)

WD Passport Elite 320 - won't install autobackup launcher


The problems is this: at this point, Western Digital is not supporting Vista 64-bit with any of their related software. Granted, some things will still work while using the 32-bit version, but some won't, and the backup software is a prime example of the latter.

You might try downloading the latest version of the software from here:

http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=204&lang=en

Chances are, it will still barf, but it can't hurt to try it out. An alternative is to use another backup application; the one included with Vista ought to work. I wish I had better news, and believe me, as a user of both XP 64 and Vista 64, I feel your pain.

Cheers

Nick
