Bad move WD. Forcing your lame software on us by putting it into the firmware us backfiring. Just look at all the posts. I just bought your 1Tb My Book for Mac. Worked with it for about 45 minutes, trying to erase the whole drive before I learned where you stored the software. Most people don’t want your software. Just the drive! And you think the solution is supplying a firmware update (that doesn’t work) that is suppose to allow the user to just HIDE your WD SmartWare virtual CD drive.
Bought today, returned for a cash refund tomorrow. To many good drive manufacturers out there to put up with this **bleep**.
Thanks for wasting my time.
