    I also recently purchased a WESTERN DIGITAL 250GB PASSPORT USB PORTABLE but the problem is i can't copy large files.. 6 GB up.
    there will be an error saying the "NO ENOUGH SPACE''. even if the free space is still very large. Small files copy OK but the large files always get refused. I am trying to copy from my D: drive (250Gb) to the USB portable on F: My C: drive is an 80Gb drive.

    I rebooted the PC but the fault remained. I ran Disk Cleanup on my C: drive which returned 500 Mb to me and my C: drive is reporting 21 Gb free. the fault remains. I purchased this USB disk to back up my video files and I find this fault very annoying.

Doh

After posting the above, I found the answer on another forum about 10 minutes later. The WD drive is formated in FAT 32. My XP PC HDDs are formated in NTFS. FAT 32 has a 4Gb file size limit.

Answer. Format the WD drive in NTFS. It takes about 10 sec to do a quick format, but of course you lose all the content. Then You can copy anything you like to it. I have just copied a 33Gb video to the disc.

My 320gb western digital wont defrag as it says i have correupt files, it also wont let me copy to it as it keeps coming up with loads of error messages! Help! I cant even scan it!


Hi motleyshue ,
What you can do is copying all the files to an other HD or drive after having recovered the data with a specific recovery software :

or :

Your WD drive is probably defective and good for the recycing bin after these operations . Do not overwrite your existing data on it !


Best regards ,

There is an i/o error on some images and music files, on WD passport external hdd


The disk-drive inside the case is "dying".
Try to copy all the files that you can, before it's completely "dead".

Then, if the drive is still under warranty, exercise the warranty to get a free replacement.

If not under warranty, WD has a "customer loyalty" program -- take the serial-number, and buy a new Passport from WD's web-site, citing the serial-number, to get a big discount on the purchase.

WD passport 320GB Can I use it as storage, not backup?


You can use it as storage if you would like. You can also delete files once they are put on the passport. When it is connected to the computer open my computer and it will be listed there. You can use it as storage by copying files into this way rather than syncing it. Syncing it could cause you to lose files.
