Unable to unlock WD passport Drive

I’m getting an error message…You must run the WD Drive Unlock application from the WD Drive Unlock CD associated with the drive you want to unlock.

Click Exit, locate and open the related WD Drive Unlock CD and then run WD Drive Unlock to unlock the desired drive.

When I choose the CD the password screen won’t come up. Any thoughts?
