You can fix the problem by manually assigning a drive-letter to it: Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management In the bottom-right pane, find the ribbon which represents the Passport drive (it will have no name or drive-letter, and may have "Raw" as the partition-type). Right-click it and choose "Change Drive Letter & Paths", then click "New". Choose a letter from the drop-down. Click 'OK' or 'Next'.

Click on it to open. You will now see a page with a list of files. Look for WD SmartWare.swstor. Click that to open. You should now see User - PC Click to open You will now see Volume files. Click on those to view your saved data. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources: ForumI cannot see stored files in WD MY PASSPORT ForumMy wd passport assential is rated at 1000 gig.
