Eject the Western Digital SmartWare VCD on login

Western Digital provides a utility to disable this that is pretty easy to do:

Indeed they do provide a utility but for me was mostly waste of time.

We have 6 of these sort of drives. The firmware updates did not install on some of the drives no matter what i did, so i could not get rid of the Smartware.
The script may well come in handy. All very annoying as really do not want this extra partition showing ever !
