Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive

2 Answers

Hooking up the WD Passport to a USB enabled CD/DVD player possible?

I just bought a 320GB WD Passport portable hard drive and have transferred most of my music onto it. I also have a 2GB flash drive with music on it which I often plug into my CD/DVD player's USB section so I can listen to some music. I was hoping to do the same thing with the 320GB WD Passport but it didn't work. Just wondering if I need to remove any of the pre-loaded software that came with it or need to format it in some way so it would work on the CD/DVD player?

The WD is on USB 2.0 - if it's reading the 2GB drive, could it be that the 320GB one is just too big to read...even though I hardly have much on it? Or maybe I just need to reformat the 320GB drive?

Hmmm...it may just be a capacity and interface issue, with the flash drive being more 'accessible' through the USB interface than the wd passport.

Big issue..is the WD on USB 2.0, and the CD/DVD on USB 1.0?

Does it work when plugged-in to any other PC/Mac? If not, it is DEFECTIVE. Return it, and get a replacement.

Does a different USB device (keyboard, mouse, memory-stick) work, when plugged into that USB port?

Why wont my Western Digital WD Passport 250GB Portable Drive 250 GB Hard Drive work?


Several possibilities:

* bad USB port in your computer (try another USB port)
* messed-up copy of Windows (try connecting to a different computer)
* damaged USB cable between computer and the Passport (replace it)
* bad disk-drive inside the enclosure (replace it)
* bad USB-to-disk-drive adapter (buy a new "empty" enclosure)

Check the warranty on it, to see if W.D. will replace it, at minimal cost to you. If the warranty has expired, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program -- buy a new Passport through their web-site, and you qualify for a discount on your purchase.

the USB port in the dvd player is to update it by the manufacturer. Unless the USB port is in the front then try going into the dvd players menu and have it search for devices, also make the content easy to find for dvd player, like have a VIDEO folder and put the media in there.

Not all DVD-players support DivX encoding of movies.
Check that your DVD-player does support DivX.
