A totally unusable monstrosity,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Western Digital My Passport Essential 750GB USB 2.0 Portable External Hard Drive - Black (Personal Computers)
I own four other WD passport drives ranging from 120-320gb, all are simple 'plug and play' and worked from the outset with no problems. This one breaks the mould however, causing 'blue screen of death' crashes of my otherwise very stable XP system when I removed the drive, even using the 'safely remove hardware' system. In addition it caused intermittent 'blue screen of death' crashes at other times, possibly related to the drive side non-standard USB connector that is woefully wobbly. why WD want to ruin a loyal customer base is beyond me.
Sorry WD, but I'm off to Seagate and this monstrosity is crawling shamefaced back to amazon condemned to an eternity of torment.
