    DO NOT BUY THIS!!!

    WD Passport drives have always been reliable, excellent drives and I've owned several without any issues, but this new version is very disappointing for 2 key reasons:1) The included software is incredibly tricky to disable if you don't want to use it. You have to go to WD's website and download new hardware and software drivers. I am relative tech-savvy, but it took me 90 minutes to finally get the drive ready to drag and drop files over to it. I almost gave up..I should have.2) New mini USB cable is VERY unstable. The slightest touch, and I mean just barely touching the cable while the drive is connected to your USB port, will disconnect the drive from your computer. The problem lies with the mini USB connection where it connects to the drive itself.I could have lived with reason 1, as I overcame it and my frustrations would have subsided, but reason 2 makes the drive simply unusable. I am returning it to Amazon.WD management - you are... 1/5 JREV (Ambler, PA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    unacceptable

    i bought three of this new model and was planning to put a bunch of family pictures on them and give them to my parents for christmas.unfortunately i was a victim of false advertising : this is not a plug-and-play drive.WD, what are you thinking ? When I plug in my hard drive i certainly don't want a CD volume automatically appearing under My Computer in addition to the actual hard drive volume.Because of this "Virtual CD" nonsense, Windows launches the "New Hardware Assistant" each time I plug in my drive!Here is what WD has to say about "The Virtual CD" :"" A small portion of drive space on your new My Passport or My Book hard drive has been used to create a Virtual CD (VCD). The VCD contains the WD SmartWare installation software, the encryption and password protection application, User Manuals, and other resource files. The VCD looks like an actual CD volume and appears on the screen each time you connect your WD drive to the... 1/5 Stephan Baishanski (Paris, France) - See all my reviews, December 20, 2009

    Hate it, wish I hadn't assumed latest model would be better than previous

    I did research for a while on hard drives, and the previous model received generally positive reviews, so I finally decided to go for it and order one. Then I noticed the 'a newer model of this item is available' link, and clicked on it. Assumption; the newer model would just be an updated model of the previous. Now, I do not lay claim to a really high level of technical understanding of computers and processes, but I know enough to know that when your laptop crashes the first 3 times you try to connect your new external hard drive, there's a problem. At first I assumed that it was maybe a clash between the hard drive and my virus software, because it can be a little temperamental the first time it sees a new program, and when it did eventually install I began a back up. The back up just stopped after about half an hour; the cord fell out of the back of the drive. I plugged it back in, and the light on the drive came back on, but the back up wouldn't resume. I've tried several times... 1/5 A. Andrew (NY, USA) - See all my reviews, October 4, 2009
