The Driver and software are built in, Stored on the WD it's self.. all you need to do is plug it in. It is a plug and play device.
WD Passport is not supported on XP or Vista 64bit Xp and Vista do not put enough power to the usb ports to fire up the drive. there is a cable you can get from WD that plugs into 2 USB ports to solve this issue.
It's not True.. Windows Vista will detect fat32 system and read the content without any problem.
First you try to connect the WD into different USB port and check. Also check whether your USB drivers have been installed on your system.
2nd Option: Connect the WD and restart the system.
3rd Option: Check whehter the WD has been detected and check whehter the drive letter has been assigned by the system automatically. for this go to disk management and check the same.

Check the drive letter assignment for the disks, and make sure it is not the C: driver. I am assuming you can boot and then plug the disk, right? So use the Disk Manager to check the driver letter, and change it if it is conflicting with another disk.
load the driver for mac use, the external hard drive comes with cd, the mac driver should be inside, load it to your mac computer. if you donot have the cd go online to western digital and download it. just load the driver and u will be fine, make sure u connect the cable in right places.
Yes. The case doesn't care what size the drive is. The computer is just asking for the USB driver for the case. Check the WD site for the driver for the model of MyBook that you have. That should cover it.
Have you installed it as the main drive, ie the one with the ops system on, or have you installed it as a secondary drive? Either way, check you have the drive set up correctly as per instructions on pack. You are not alone with this problem either, it is common with WD. Come back to me with more info re your install.
Personally, I would set it up in an external enclosure and access via USB. Much more realable that way, and it is portable for you.
Change the drive letters, worked for me. I have 2 WD My Books, I made one R: and one S: worked fine after that. On vista go to Control Panel -> Classic View -> Admin Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Right click on WD drive and change letter. For some reason G, F, E, ect seem to run into some problems
