Passport shouldn't require any software installation to work properly. It shouldn't prompt to install any drivers or application software.

I agree on NOT HAVING TO  KEEP THE INCLUDED BUILT IN SOFTWARE IN THE PASSPORT HD's

I agree. This and the unremovable VCD are the reasons keeping me from getting a new Passport. While I love the WD passport series, if this isn't fixed soon I'll have to search for another line of external drives.

 

Software should be an option, not a requirement!

Please let us use the WD passport like a normal external drive.

No VCD, No WD SES Device only usb external drive.

And please change usb cable to standard one.

The usb cable have problem to stay plugged in.

Thanks

Agree on everything.

About cable - even standard mini USB is much better.

Agree on everything.

 

No VCD, No WD SES Device only usb external drive. This makes the disk no portable anymore!

can i install WD smartware in  my  passport essential WD3200ME?

by on ‎04-13-2010 06:55 PM

I would like it to be totally self-contained password protection - so I can access the files from any machine without installing any software.

 

Smartware is completely useless - slows down pc to unacceptable levels and won't allow you to specify the files to backup.
