I bought a 320gb My Passport USB device this week so that I could move my files around between any PC at work and use it like a USB flash drive but with more storage. However, I cannot seem to access the drive without setting up the software. This is not possible since I am not an administrator on any of the PCs. I have no interest in the security or backup, I just want the storage.
Is there any way to blow away the WD software and just use it as a USB Storage device? I have used other USB hard disks in the past and not had to worry about installing the software.
Please help. If not, I’ll look to take it back to the store and choose another brand which would be a shame since I’ve been impressed with the quality of other WD hard disks.
