Re: WD unlocker

Download either of these files and extract in desktop. Copy everything in to your drive. If Windows, it is 465MB. Mac 181MB. Unlock tools are in the folders.

Re: WD unlocker

thank you. that is exactly what i needed. any chance you know a program that can also convert it to a FAT32? Xbox360 is not NTFS friendly.

You can use this free FAT32 formatter to format partitions up to 2TB. Personally I don't like anyone using My Passport for FAT32 applications. I have seen so many complaints on this forum in regards to FAT32 with Passport. My best advice is to use cheap USB drive for XBox  application.
