I just unpacked my WD Elements 1.5TB drive and followed the minimal quick install instructions.
The OS (Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit) found a driver (the driver is: WD Ext HDD 1021 USB Device
which I can read if I select the device in the Computer window and select Properties/Hardware)
The Drive appears in the Computer window as a BD-ROM with no removable media installed.
If I launch "Computer Management/Disk Management"
I see a 1.397GB drive with one partition
I'm sure this is the WD Elements drive.
But I cannot access it since, as noted above, Windows thinks it's a BD-ROM drive.
This error does not show up on the first page of a Google Search. I would appreciate help from the wise heads here.
My PC is an HP laptop, dv6-2150us
