Hi, Ok well I did a little looking around and with these drives the software is already on the drive itself and loads from there on first plug in. When the prompt asks you software are you able to point it back to the deivece itself.

I will paste in a link from where I found a bit of info on them.

My passport is originally 250 GB but now it says that it's only 94 MB. I don't know what happened.


is that a free space and used space graphic? or does the entire disk(use start my computer right click on hard drive and see what total amount of space says)

if you have been using this for a while, that would explain the lower figure but this graphic will clearly show the balance on that drive

here's a link for a free disk optimizer that might help too

right click to reinstall drivers or

if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
hope this helps

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,


just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,

check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems

if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap

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.

I can feel d disk rotating yet PC doesnt recognise the drive


Hi There mosam,

In most cases, external Passport Drives come with their own drivers and install themselves automatically when connected to your puter's USB port. If it doesn't find a driver, then the Passport can't work. Go to the Western Digital Support website and type in the model # of your external drive. Having located the driver for that model, download it by saving it to your desktop. Then run the exe. driver install software. Once having done so, your Passport should show right up and off you go! Very Important...if the driver install program wants you to restart your puter after installing itself, be sure to do so. Good Luck!
