Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
Supported Operating Systems
ONLY Windows Operating systems supported by Western Digital software. You could attempt running the setup.exe in "compatibility mode" this may resolve the issue. You could also go back to a older computer, remove the lock, and use a different software to encrypt the device. Such as "TrueCrypt"

Or buy a NEW Western Digitial Drive that DOES support Windows 8.
