My WD Passport sounds like a machine running, but my computer doesn't recognise it. I also do not see the lights at the insertion site. Please help, Thanks, Naveen


The lights signal data transfer so no lights = no transfer. It's clear that the hard disk inside your Passport has failed and, since it can't be repaired, all the data was lost and the unit is dead.
Buy a new one.

I have an i mac and windows 7 laptop.......the laptop is brand new and i want to transfer all my music and movies from my mac......can this be done and if so how???!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


> transfer from Mac to PC ... how ?

Several ways:

* use Ethernet cables to connect the network-port on each computer to a "router" (one of those boxes that "splits" your Internet signal, and might provide "wireless" access inside your home), and then enable "file-sharing" on both computers.
Then, the computers can "talk" to each other, via the router.

* write all the files to an external storage device, e.g., USB memory-stick or Western Digital Passport device. Move the device to the other computer, and copy from the device onto the computer.

* "burn" all the files to CD-recordable or DVD-recordable disks.
Move the disks to the new computer.

We are trying to load data files from old computer system to new. Had Passport hooked up to old computer for two weeks.How do we get the files off Passport and onto the new system?


Hi,
Use the passport to transfer the files, but DO NOT USE THE Passport SYNCHRONIZING software. The Passport will keep a snapshot of the old computer and when hooked up to the new one it will compare it to the snapshot it has stored and, not recognizing it, will ask you to reinitialize the profile, erasing everything in the process. ( At least that is what happened to me everytime I changed something in my computer: new partition or some other thing)

The pedestrian procedure
  1. Hook up the Passport to the old computer.
  2. Copy the data from the old computer and paste it onto the Passport, preferably in a folder. (Drag and drop, Copy Paste)
  3. Safely remove the Passport and hook it up to the new computer.
  4. Open the Windows explorer, travel to the Passport, locate the data folder you created before.
  5. Point to it with the mouse cursor, right-click and select Copy.
  6. Go to the new computer hard drive and paste the data folder on c: or some other folder.
Hope it helps.

WD Passport Drive running SLOWWWWW on time machine


USB s slow and when you have huge files it tends to bog it down. it is better to have a firewire transfer. another reason could be your computer is doing to much. leave the computer at one task. walk away and let it work. otherwise you will be using memory.

My passport "removes" my files!


WARNING: Do not think that theyourWD Passport, using the WD Sync software, is a backup drive; it is NOT !

As per the documentation with this device:
"synchronization software is intended to synchronize the data from a
computer to the drive (WD Passport) and SHOULD NOT be used as backup
software. To use this software properly, we advise that you do not wipe or
erase the data from the internal hard drive (computer) and resynchronize, as
this will cause the data that WD Sync stored to the Passport to be deleted."

This is why you are hearing so many people saying that they are deleting the
WD Sync software, reformatting, and using the WC Passport as a true backup
drive where you can actually see the files that you are backing up, rather
than a bunch of unrecognizable sync files that likely don't have all the files that you thought you "backed up".
