Windows 8 and My Book Essential 2.0

My Book Essential 2.0 has got 3 partitions under Vista and worked well. After upgrading to Windows 8 only one of the partitions (logical drive) was shown up but not 2 others (1. Section). At both the loaded und unloaded sections were zero wenn checked under "Properties". Microsoft Support advised to download the driver from manufacturer. I tried it from your internet support but after downloading the programm couldnot be installed, even tried twice. (may be not suitable for Windows 8)
