Western Digital My Passport_ Digital Display

On the display I always see VIDEOS 09. Before I reformatted for mac there was also, I believe, a line showing data used or available. Can I get rid of this? Does it ever change? And what is powering the display since I thought this device was bus powered? If anyone can shed some light. Thanks.

Can you give me more details regarding this issue. What display are you pertaining to?

On the front of the drive there is a small display, text only. It always says ‘VIDEOS 09’. Originally it also showed space available but that went away after I formatted it for mac. I would like for this to go away too as it seems meaningless. Thanks.

You just need to install smartware so that you can change the display setting.

Thank you, problem solved.
