SOURCE: I have an electrical problem with the motherboard

My understanding is that after 5 failed attempts at keying the password, the WD locks the drive. YOu then have to go through a power on sequence which gives you another 5 attempts at putting the password in. After that you have to reformat the drive and lose all the data if you want to use the drive.

It is very likely the hard drive is locked to the application that was transferring the file from laptop to the hard drive.

Try to follow some of the steps in the unlock drive section of this webpage.

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

my dear ! I'm really happy cuz i hv done it in just 4 to 8 minutes !!
I'm so happy to tell u that ! u should just update ur wd device system system >>>

You can format your Western Digital drive .first you connect your drive with the computer. Now when the drive prompts you for the password then you enter any wrong password five times. Then you will be prompted to erase the existing drive. If it doesn't prompt to unlock the drive then access the Western Digital smart ware Cd and in the unlocker button double click it.I hope this if you follow this solution your problem is over.

I love to help people because I'm MUSLIM :)

It may be something your antivirus is doing to keep from transferring a virus from the Passport to the Computer or vice versa.

Always be certain to run your antivirus on all periferal storage devices.
