Western digital 320 gb external hard drive

I have the same external drive 320mb drive and you really do not need a manual for it. In order to use it, you may need to have it recognized by your PC/LAPTOP and/or format it by following the following steps below: Your external drive should be automatically recognized by your Windows O/S but in some rare case, you need to tell your PC/Laptop that it has a new drive connected via: CONTROL PANEL -> ADMISTRATIVE TOOLS -> COMPUTER MANAGEMENT -> STORAGE -> DISK MANAGEMENT -> locate your external drive -> right click on the external drive to bring up the context menu -> Create required partition(s) -> Quick FORMAT (NTFS is fine but I suggest FAT32 for more compatibility) -> 'change drive letter and path' to assign a drive letter to your external drive(s) .

Wd passport will not load to my xbox 360

Re: My passport Elite 500 will not show up my Xbox360 Options 12-30-2009 11:19 AM
if it's the drive that comes with the smartware, then it comes pre-formatted NTFS , and your xbox needs FAT32 format to work.

So, you need to connected this drive on a mac computer to format to ms dos FAT32, or use a formatting utility like "partition magic" to format the drive to fat32, then if there's password assigned remove it, and it should work
