MyBook Virtual CD

Hello! I just got a WD MY BOOK 14 TB.
The drive works very well but I have a question:
if I set a password and the connect the drive to another pc, there is no virtual cd to offer to unlock it.
I think that’s stupid.
Can WD please release a utility to enable or disable the virtual CD or I have to hack it and do it myself?

Also, WD should offer a way to DISABLE ENCRYPTION, so if the usb/sata bridge dies it would be possible to read the HDD elsewhere.

In the meanwhile I found a way to disable the Virtual CDROM even from linux, without the need of any WD utility.
All you need is a SCSI command :smiley:

And I BET there is one to disable the encryption and set the usb/sata bridge as a pure pass-through

Hi @Zibri,

Have you opened a Support Case? If not opened, for more information, please contact the WD Technical Support team for the best assistance and troubleshooting:

I just did. But it’s not just me, many people want the same thing.
