I have been attempting to deploy a WD MyBook 4T on a Mac Pro 5,1 running Mojave - Mac OS 10.14.6. The drive does not mount, or IS visible in Disk Utility. Tired installing on a machine running Sierra, and a Win 10 Laptop - same result. Oddly the USB buses can “see” an attached device, but no volume. Tried most of the solutions in the support Knowledge Base. Installed WD Discovery and the software seems to “see” the drive, but it still does not mount. Knowledge base suggests drive might be locked - but I have no idea what any “old” password might be to edit or ulock - this drive is NEW OUT OF THE BOX.
Who ships a locked device???
Help? Otherwise the poor thing is a shiny paperweight.
