WD My Book and Windows 7

I purchased a WD My Book external hard drive to make automatic back-ups on my computer which ran on Windows XP. I have just purchased a new PC using Windows 7 and can load and download information from the hard drive but the software to do automatic back-ups doesn't work. Where can I find software to load for Windows 7? Western Digital seems to say that my hard drive is "out of warranty" and therefore not eligible for updated software.

Re: WD My Book and Windows 7

What type of My Book you have? Is compatible with windows 7. I have found a compatbility list on the WD website.

Re: WD My Book and Windows 7

Just read the post and this is my problem also. I have a My Book Essential Model # WD10000H1U-00. The software that came with it does not work on my new Windows 7 computer. Is there a way to continue using this device? I can't afford a new one.

Re: WD My Book and Windows 7

I have WD5000GO32. I initially was able to get this to work with my windows 7 home by downloading the MioNet. I re-imaged my conputer and now I can not access it even after installing MioNet. After playing around for a while I did get the public folder to come up. But I have stored allmy stuff outside the public folder in their own folders. I would def appreciate the help to access my files.
