I have two WD hard disks, which are both my Passport. Also, I have another WD, which is element’
The WD my passport hard disks contain folders and files(such as setup files for Smartware and manuals) came inside them from the factory. However, WD elements doesn’t contain.
I have installed a program which came only inside the hard disk’WD my passport’, but not WD element. That program is ‘WD smartware’, which is used to make a backup automatically, erase the hard disk and let me see view quick of drives and other tasks. Whenever I connected the drives, I saw this message below:(This file doesn’t have a program associated with it performing this action)
However, when I connected another hard disk drive, which is from same company ‘WD elements’, I didn’t see such a message. However, I see that the hard disk opens automatically with some options.
Why does the WD elements hard disk opens automatically with above options whenever I connect it. However, the WD my passport don’t and I only see the error message of associations.
Moreover, when I erase the hard disk with WD Software associated with the WD my passport hard disks to make an automatic backup and other tasks. Then, I disconnected and reconnected the hard disk to my computer, I saw that this above windows contains options was shown
N.B.: I have made a copy of these files to my internal hard disk before erasing the hard disk during WD Smarter which I installed from hard disk.
However, when I return again and put a copy of the files(files heightened in this screensho) coming from the factory in the hard disk. Then whenever I connect my hard disk, I see this error(This file doesn’t have a program associated with it performing this action). Also, when I delete them, I saw the outplay opens well.
So, I think that the problem is in the files associated with the WD my passports had disks
Also, I made sure that I installed ‘WD SES’ which is used to enhance the deal with the WD my passport hard disks. ‘WD SES DEvices’, which is under the category ‘WD drive management devices’ in the device manager, is installed. However, there isn’t WD SES Device’ for WD elements hard disk.
