How to begin set up of WD My Passport for Mac

Is there a step by step guide for setting this up?
My iMac is running macOS Big Sur version 11.2.1
I thought this was going to be easy but not for me I guess.
Any help would be appreciated.


Please be informed that it is a plug and drive and does not require any software for setup. However for any other queries, you can contact our support team.

Are you looking to format your “new” external hard drive for usage? If so then refer to this guide on Formatting WD on Mac.

Hi, yes that is what I was looking for. I had found a step by step video for it also. Thanks for your help!
