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 need to download the file ARCSOFT for a WESTERN DIGITAL external hard drive. Is this possible


You are referring to a software which was preloaded on your hard drive and it appears you lost this program. Western Digital provides on their website a few tools, but not the preloaded programs on your drive (except for the backup program tools intially installed.

I reccomend calling Western Digital and ask them how to obtain this software.

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.
