I bought my fifth and sixten Western Digital My Passport SE 1TB recently.
As with my previous four passports, I wanted to disable the Virtual CD as described here. However, when I loaded the firmware updater, it says the drive could not be found. This message appeared for both drives. I tried to update/disable the Virtual CD on this computer (Windows 7) and another computer (Windows XP) and got the same “drive cannot be found” error.
I have reformatted both drives instead in the hopes that this will get rid of the Virtual CD. Just want to make sure these drives are ready to go before I fill 'em up.
