Re: 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.

Lost install cd software bundle

Hard drives usually self install. Unplug the driver and switch it of so it is disconnected from the USB. restart your computer. turn the power back on for the drive and Plug the USB lead back in to the computer (When started up). Windows should install the driver automatically. This will take about a minute or two.

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.

I lost my cd rom to install it.. how can i get it to work without the cd?

Your BIOS software will recognize your hard drive. once installed.

i wouldn't worry about any disc. j
ust install it and the if you need more help you can ask again.
Since after you install the hard-drive, you will have to reinstall every program including the operating system.

Installation cd

Hello, technically you should not need the install CD for this as any modern computer you plug it into should be able to recognize it and use it. However if you feel you need any downloads go to the manufacturers website which is HERE. Good Luck! Dr. Know
