I lost my password hdd wd 500gb. im on a new mac so i dont have any files installed and i cant because i cant remember my password. is there a way to just reformat and take my lumps?


Ifthere is a pasword on the drive box I dunno. If you mean that you have lost your windows logon pasword for the drive in the cassy then yes , you should be able to format and start again.
If the caddy is password locked you canalways remove the drive and install it a a secondary drive in the mac case

Hard disk password reset


Hey;

You can NOT reset the password on a HD. It's written in the hardware as well as on the HD itself.

I forgat pasword 1000GB my passport USB


My Passport is one of the external storage product lines produced by Western Digital, or WD. My Passport drives are designed for on-the-go use, unlike the enlarged devices found in the My Book series. Passports have slim cases constructed of heat-sinking materials such as aluminum -- which compensates for the lack of built-in fans. They range in storage capacity from 250 GB up to 1 TB, although out of the box this amount is diminished because of the installation of SmartWare, WD's user-friendly software. You can reset the password on My Passport from within the application if need be.

Click "Start" and select "Computer." Double-click the CD-ROM drive, then double-click the "SmartWare" application; on a PC, the application is listed as "WD SmartWare.exe," and on a Mac it is listed as "WD SmartWare.app." Click the "Settings" tab. Click "Set Up Drive." Select "Install" and accept the "End User License Agreement" when prompted. Click "Continue Setup." Open the "Security" tab. Type your current password into the box labeled "Password." Enter a new password and a new password hint. Confirm by checking the "I Understand" box and clicking "Update Security Settings." if this fails

How to reset the username, password, and network settings of a WD My Book World Edition hard drive. trnsp.gif Answer The directions below detail how to reset the username and password (for the Shared Storage Manager utility), and network settings of a WD My Book World Edition hard drive by using the recovery button on the back of the unit.

  • The username will be changed to "admin"
  • The password will be changed to "123456"
  • The network settings will be changed to DHCP (obtain an IP address automatically).

    1. Please ensure that the WD My Book World Edition hard drive is turned off and all cables are disconnected from the unit.


    2. Insert a paperclip or narrow tipped pen into the recovery slot on the back of the unit. Press and hold down the recovery button.


    3. While continuing to hold down the recovery button, connect the power cable to the back of the unit.


    4. Hold the recovery button down for at least 40 seconds while the unit boots up and then release the button.


    5. The unit may take up to three minutes to boot up completely. It is only necessary to hold down the recovery button for the first 40 seconds of this boot up process.
    Note: Western Digital recommends rebooting the computer system after making any network setting changes to the WD My Book World Edition hard drive.

  • then from WD software select General Setup->WD Anywhere Access settings->Reset.
