I ran the exe to remove the virtual CD and it worked so well that it also removed visibility of the myBook drive as well! Anyone know how to un-remove the virtual CD, or reverse whatever that program did? I have a myBook Essential running on a fresh install of Win7.
After reinstalling Win7 I installed the SES drivers for the myBook, and it was fine (finally removed the error in device manager). Then, as I did in the previous install, I also removed the virtual drive. Maybe the .exe was different this time (I downloaded it fresh from the support website). Now I have no drive at all, and no error messages in device manager. But I do have an “initio default controller” showing in printers and devices, which I suspect is the WD drive.
Ideas?? How do I turn this mystery device into a disk drive? Oh, and I also checked Disk Management, and it’s not showing up there.
