My passport elite 500gb (old) compatibility with window 7
Jan 23, 2010, 1:54 AM
I just bought My Passport Elite 500gb (titanum colour).
Model no. is WD5000ML-00 or WDML5000TA (not sure which one is the proper model name).
(The box exactly looks like the 3rd pic)
There were also other "same" my passport elite 500gb products (with a different box) but it costed more than the one I bought.
I think the one I bought was for the stock clear-out sale.
After I bought it I found out (from the information at the back of the box)
it's compatible with Window 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS x10.4.10+, 10.5.2+
Some says if it's compatible with Window Vista, then it is also compatible with Window 7 as well.
Could anyone give me good experienced opinions on it?

I wouldn't see why not. The external drive I currently use is a Passport (though a newer version) and it works nicely with Windows 7.

Same here. I haven't encountered a problem with external HD compatibility with USB yet.
