I have an External Hard drive My Passport Essential (WD Software) 250GB, I lost the password so I had to format the hard drive. during the earasing I got this message “There has been an error erasing your drive.”, I clicked on the format button several times, but i kept getting the same error. then I pluged out and in the hard drive.
The hard drive is no longer locked, it’s been unlocked but in the Home ribbon of the WD Software it says “No writable WD smartware partition found.”, and the hard drive doesn’t show up in my My Copmuter, the only which shows up is the WD Software CD Drive!
Running Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-Bit.
and latest WD software update
