Deactivate encryption on My Passport


#1

I bought a My Passport to use it with a BD\DVD player that sadly doesn’t properly read it. I read on the internet that the problem is caused by the encryption that the WD MP does, but all the guide I found on the web, included the ones on the WD FAQ, make use of the WD SmartWare\SmartWare Virtual CD Manager to deactivate it, and those can’t read the new WD devices, since they don’t support them anymore. On the download page WD suggests the use of Acronis True Image WD Edition instead of WD SW, is it possible to deactivate the encryption with it? I didn’t find anything on the software in question. If not, there is a way to do so? I know it is my fault, but I’d like to use the HDD for what I bought it.
