Drive Utility and Security Apps Do Not Recognize Drive

Brand new drive, just purchased yesterday. Followed instructions, installed WD Discovery software, Drive Utilities, and Security Apps. My Computer shows the drive as My Passport (F:), and I can successfully back up files onto it using Windows Backup. But when I open the Security or Drive Utilities apps, (through WD Discovery, or using the desktop shortcuts), I get a screen that says “Attach a Supported WD Drive”. So the WD Apps are not recognizing My Passport drive, even though my OS can see it. This is on a laptop running Windows 7. I checked the firmware update, and it says my drive has the latest firmware. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the WD software, multiple restarts, etc. Please let me know how I can use the WD Apps with my new drive? Thank you, -Dan. [REMOVED DUE TO PRIVACY POLICY]
