I have a 2tb wd my book essential hooked up via usb to my computer which has a quad core, 4g ram, xp pro and usually runs pretty fast btw. The first thing I did was to update the firmware and software for the my book before even moving anything over, i disabled the virtual cd, still not clear on what that does, but when i restart the pc the program starts up (smartware) and seems to slow everything down on the pc in general.
Are there any settings I can change or confirm here to help fix this?
The way things are slowing down its almost useless to have the thing running.
Thanks for any help on this,
