I am very disappointed in the response here on this forum.
I have been able to un-password protect the drive.
WD software is user hostile to say the least, but I have been able to find a way to add/retrieve data to the drive through an explore window.
WD should make it a simple button to select to use the drive as the passports are used.
Oh well. I've got it working well enough to get by for now.
I would not advise anyone buying one who just needs more storage, this thing is meant for people who just want and easy backup solution.
