I have a Passport Elite 320 Gb running on a HP a6120n Vista machine. I noticed no activity on it for a few days. Then WDDM is not running came up, although in Task Manager WD SmartWare has been running. When I brought up SmartWare on the task bar, System (my computer) information shows, but nothing else. When I try to click on Update Software, Contact us, or anything else, MS Word opens with some html code. I can’t do anything else. I saw a post on answers.microsoft to uninstall the software, so I did in Control Panel -the only place I could do it. They say reinstall the software…how to do that?
Is there any way I can use this as a regular external hard drive now - to be able to see what’s actually on there and transfer files back and forth? I’ve had it for three years so it has a lotta stuff on it .
