Need Drivers for Legacy My Book


My apologies for the Category not being exactly correct. I have a legacy My Book external 1tb hard drive that my Windows 10 laptop will not recognize. It shows up in Device Manager as 'SYMWAVE WDC WD10EAVS-32D SCSI Disk Device but does not show up in Windows Explorer.

Are there drivers available for the Windows 10 OS?


There’s no driver needed for that drive.

What does Disk Manager say about the drive?


You have to format it (if its new)


It’s not a new drive – it’s probably 5-10 years old and was working as of a year ago.
