Re: My Passport Wireless
When I try a USB connection to my Windows XP PC (not necessarily expecting any recognition) the PC actually detects it - no sign of it though, except for Disk Management where it shows as a ‘Healthy (GPT Protected Partition)’. Strange, it was exFAT when it worked on Windows 8 (as it should be) – so why not with Windows XP, the drive hasn’t been altered?
Nevertheless, now it shows an error with a USB connection on Windows 8 and I’m prompted to scan (Error Check) it. After doing so all seems ok again – unless I connect to Windows XP again and it’s a case of déjà vu!
As far as I can see, it’s the .wdcache folder causing the issue (‘Location is not available’, ‘F:.wdcache is not accessible’, ‘The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable’).
What’s going on, any ideas – is there a workaround that prevents this but enables it’s use with Windows XP?
As a side issue; twice I’ve tried registering my device with Western Digital but have yet to receive an acknowledgement email.
As you were, I’ve sorted it myself – works fine on both XP and Win8 now.
Still no registration acknowledgement from WD though – guess one can’t have everything?
