I have a 6 year old HP Pavilion with Windows XP.
Yesterday I got WD My Book Essential 2 TB and plugged it in.
A Windows installer window appeared on the screen and wanter to look for a “driver” ( I think). I let it and the installationed seemed to go OK. But I saw not evidence of WD Smartware. So I started looking around for it and found this forum.
Last night I also copied MyDocuments to it. And did a Norton 360 backup to it.
How do I get WD Smartware and should I get/have VCD?
