Brand new WD My Book 1TB. Firmware update. Power cycle. Reboot. Smartware updated. Reboot.
All seems to be OK, but Windows Update tells me I need to updateWestern Digital Technologies - Other hardware - WD SES Device
I try it, but it fails: Installation date: 05/08/2011 16:01

The SES driver is what allows you to have WD Smartware working, if you install the software then, the driver is going to install as well.
If you don't want to use Smartware , yo won't need to install the driver and the drive will work fine anyways.-
