Removal only works with most recent firmware
Authored by: Krioni on Jun 07, '10 11:09:59PM
I had a big problem trying to update the firmware so I could run the software (Virtual_CD_Manager_v1003) that removes this garbage. The firmware labeled "WDEssential_and_Elite_FirmwareUpdater_v1.0.0.16(2.003)" crashed every time. Useless.

The firmware "EssentialEliteFirmwareUpdater_v1005" instructions found at the following link worked for me. How to disable (hide) the Virtual CD (VCD) for Windows or Mac OSX on a My Book or My Passport drive

Note to self: next time you want to save $15 on buying a drive, factor in the wasted hour removing garbage installed by idiot manufacturers like Western Digital. What makes these bozos think they know better than their users? They clearly don't.
