Warning: I am blonde :) Getting started

OK, so I just bought the 1TB WD My Passport wireless. I registered myself and chose a password, renamed the device. It is still showing up as ‘My Passport’ on my hard drive, but as ‘Lynn’s Wireless’ on my connections. The password I selected will not let me in as a registered user on the My Password, or on the My Passport local. I’m on an oldish iMac but running Mavericks. Not sure if that makes a difference.

Have i missed a step somewhere?

This box came up with ‘lynn’ already entereed, from the local page when connected via “Lynn’s Wireless”

I thought I may have solved my own problem by going into admin and setting p/w there, but still can’t sign in as a registered user.


I recommend you contact support directly for assistance with this.

Contact WD

The My Passport doesn’t understand Registered Users – there’s no security on the file system side – only Wireless security.

Try Guest User – that should work.
