Where Can I Find Cumulative Firmware Patches - My Passport Essential SE

My objective was simply to remove all the now dated software on this old drive. Unfortunately, you have to use a program to do that - and it requires all firmware patches have been applied.

I found a couple of the patches and applied them. Still the program balks and tells me that I’m missing something.

There must be a master list somewhere? Please?

BTW, if you have a more expeditious suggestion on how to reformat that drive and wipe out Smart Ware, please respond to this thread.




As far as I know, WD does not have all the previews firmware of the unit available for download.

If you would like to remove everything from the drive, you can use the WD DLG tool to write zeros on the drive.

See if the following link helps.
