I bought a WD external drive about 3-4 months ago and due to initial problems backing up my desktop to it I think I inadvertantly erased the “operating system” embedded in the device.
Now I am trying to re-use again it but all I get when I plug it in to a USB 2.0 port on my pc is a message saying the folder is empty . . .
I cannot recall the model name of the device other than it’s a one Terrabyte 64 bit device and my pc refers to it as “My Passport” 0730 (it’s silver and white in color and quite slimlined)
I’ve browsed all the WD Support sites but I can’t tell which moel it is therefore cannot zero in on the proper recovery protocol.
I also cannot recall if it came with an installation CD/DVD or if the opertaing instructions were imbedded inside the device itself. I cannot find a cd/dvd where I normally store them.
Anyone who can point me in the right direction regarding regaining the use of this drive would be much appreciated by me.
