It looks like WD is locked or has a format that is not supported by WD SmartWare software on Windows. On a computer that is running . Tell me, please: what to do ? Thank you.


I got a little confused by your post.

If you used the drive on a Mac the Windows computer will not recognize it since Windows cannot read Mac format.

In order to use it on Windows you will have to format it for Windows. Please note this will delete all data stored on your external drive.
