Strangely, when I click Save Security Settings in WD Security, it tells me “Security on this drive has not been enabled.” Everything else seems to be working fine, and on a different machine I was actually able to set a password for this drive through WD Security. But I would like to know how to fix this issue on my home machine. It’s an HP laptop with XP SP3, My Passport WDBBEP0010BBK.
Weird, once you setup the password on one computer you don’t need to do anything else on any other computer, just enter your password to unlock it.
I realize that, after I’ve set the password (having connected the drive to a different machine), I’m able to use the drive on my home machine because I don’t have to go through WD Security or SmartWare, the virtual CD works fine. The problem is that I’m not able to use WD Security on my home machine.
