Firmware Update My Passport Ultra

How do I know if “My Passport Ultra” needs a firmware update? Where do I look on the portable drive to know what is the current version? I don’t have anything backed up yet. My software is 2.4.6 which I updated that. Thanks.

Welcome to the Community.

The best way to know is to try it out. The Universal Firmware Updater will not proceed if your hard drive is already up-to-date.

If you aren’t having problems with the drive leave well enough alone.


Thanks for your answers. The drive is working perfectly so I decided not to do anything with it. I’ve had some bad experiences with my pc recently because of my audio drivers but that has been repaired now along with a new motherboard installed. But, with the Passport I have everything backed up on it and that’s a good feeling if I were to lose any important data. And thanks for your quick responses. It made me more confident in choosing Western Digital.
