USB WD Passport not registering after format

Q: USB WD Passport not registering after format

Formatted WD My Passport for TV but now decided I want to use it on my PC instead. Problem is it no longer shows as a drive. I can see it in My Devices and Printers page but nowhere else. Is it possible to reformat it and use again? I'm on Windows 10.

Thanks

Preferred Solution: USB WD Passport not registering after format

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My Portable hardrive is not accessible, nor will it format. Windows 7 recognizes it, but it wont do anything else. When I try t format it it the process freezes. Sometime it comes up as not responding, but it never wirks, i tried it using DOS as well, the format command. nothing is working. any help or advice is appreciated. thank you.
 

A:Western Digital Passport will not format

My advice is to purchase a good quality enclosure and hard drive and build your own drive. It only take 10-15 minutes to assemble an external + the time to format the drive.

In many WD "My Passport" externals WD used a hard drive with a non standard SATA interface. If at some point it should become necessary to try to recover data from the non standard SATA drives WD used, you cannot do so in a conventional manner, the drive would need to be shipped to a WD repairer who has the equipment necessary to use with the WD non standard interface.

I've been searching posts but can't find quite the right answer. I just got a Passport to back up my computer. I use Vista Pro - went to the Maintainence area, and wanted to do a full backup. But I got an error message that it can't do the backup, the drive (passport) is not formatted with NTFS. I can back up individual files - my docs, music, pics, etc. But is it better if I go ahead and reformat the drive to NTFS to do the full image/backup?

Thanks in advance.

Did you try running chkdsk /r command using the CMD on the drive? This will locate the bad sectors and fix errors on the disk.

Ok I currently have a 500g WD Passport that I am going to sell only because I need to upgrade to the 1TB Passport.

Now I used the Passport for my entire computer backup, so it has personal & sensitive files.

How many times should I do a full & complete format to make sure everything is as deleted as possible so no one could ever restore any of my info?

I've always read that even with formatting you can still pull up old data...

I've been having this issue for a while and my computer guy can't help me. I am entering the right email address "[email protected]" so the way I am entering the email address is not the issue. I am really hoping someone can help me on this site.

After I complete my registration for a new account using my email address, I get an error message "Invalid Email Format". I have used other accounts as well, they are all gmail and yahoo accounts. This is an ongoing problem on my desktop, laptop and now my ipad. I did have a new wireless router installed and don't remember if this problem started before or after, could this be the issue? I can't even enjoy my ipad apps because I cannot register with HBOGO or pandora. I tried registering on shopping websites and cannot do so. It's very frustrating!

A:"Invalid Email Format" when registering on various websites

Hi
My Name is Kaushal and I work for social media and community Team at Dell.
I would like to inform you that the email address which you already have , you can not register the same email , while creating a new account with any other website.
It has to be different email address otherwise it will conflict with database of any domain.
Just an example: i have an email address [email protected] however i go to yahoo.com and i try to sign up with yahoo.com i would like to create the same email address [email protected] It cannot be created that email address because this domain is registered with ABC.NET already. Hence i would not be able to use this email address with any website you would like to sign up with so you need to ensure while creating a new account you do not need to type your own email address. Try to use different email name.

Thanks

Hi everyone,

Okay, I bought a laptop online a couple weeks ago. I recieved the laptop and it did not come with an XP installation disk. I called the place where I got it from, and they said they'd send me one along with the COA. Well, in the mean time, I used an XP disk from our home computer. I didn't register it, and I was just going to wait until I got the new installation disk and COA, and then register that copy. Well, I got the new disk today, with the COA, and I having a ton of troubles.
First, I put the disk in and...nothing ever happened. Went to the drive through My Computer, and nothing was there, although I can physically see data on the CD.
So, I just tried to activate the current windows I had on the comp with the COA that they gave me, and that didn't work.
I talked to the company where I got the computer, and they gave me another key to try, and that didn't work.
Then I tried going into BIOS. I went to startup > boot, and I saw that the CD-rom option was on top, so I clicked save and exit. And it just went back into windows, changing nothing.
I tried calling Windows. The automated computer could not help me. So I tried talking to a customer service rep and I couldn't any longer because I seriously just could not understand her. Partly because of her accent, and partly because my phone is retarded quiet.
So now, I'm wondering if it would just be best to delete the unregistered windows I have on it now, so the comp would just not have an OS ... Read more

We received a new computer recently and unistalled Trend Micro to install AVG. We also went to install Windows XP professional but it said the windows already located on the computer was newer. Later we inserted a USB into the computer and the USB did not register at all. No lights, it wasn't even in device management.
The same thing applied to our other computers when we put said USB into them. They completely ignored its existence. The USB had worked on our other computers before we inserted it into the new one.
We tried putting a 2nd USB into the new computer and the exact same thing happened.

You don't need any product key to register, and registration is completely optional, so just skip it if you want. All you need to do is have your product key validated and the operating system activated.

This problem has been vexing me for weeks. I have a Win2k SP3 network and domain. I have had to convert (clean install from scratch with a reformat), the Win2k workstations to Standard PC, since the USB printer and scanner drivers and IRQ's will not play nice with ACPI. All firmware, driver, USB, and chip upgrades were installed. These are being setup as a workgroup within a static 192.168. x.x subnet, with the DNS pointing to the internal server NIC, which passes it to the second NIC (multhomed), and then the cable modem/firewall with its own DHCP server. DHCP server is not installed/configured on the Win2k server, since the modem/firewall DHCP server handles the ISP dynamic address assignments .

The problem workstations were orginally in a separate Public organizational unit in AD, and under ACPI, they worked nominally. All workstation DNS and DHCP client services are running. Under Standard PC, the USB printer works, but there is no network connectivity. Under ACPI, the network and Internet connections work, but not the USB printer. The NIC card is a 3Com 3C905Ctx M. From the beginning, the NIC's under Standard PC can send, but not recieve packets. The current NIC driver updates were installed and verified, and device manager indicates no problems. Running a netdiag on it shows the computer cannot register with DNS.

Okay, I've tried everything I can think of, I've looked up solutions on forums around the net and now I'm at my complete wit's end and I have no idea what else I can try.

I have an ASUS m2n-e motherboard with the onboard soundcard that's generally been working alright.

When I upgraded from my Radeon x1600 to HD2600xt, a new entry appeared in my Device Manager going by the name of "High Definition Audio Bus" with a bright yellow question mark and my mic stopped working.

Everything else was fine. The new GPU was going at it and sound was coming properly out of the speakers, just my mic wouldn't register at all.

Now somehow, I got that to work. I don't remember what I did or what combination drivers I used but I managed to get the mic working and so I forgot about it.


Well, recently I had to reformat.

Upon reformatting, again, everything was fine but my mic wouldn't register. I'm pretty sure that I have all of the usual settings done correctly and that the jack is working normally plus the mic/headset works fine (I've tested that on other computers).

I have no idea what I need to do to make this work again and would appreciate any assistance :(

If you need any more info about system specs, which drivers I'm using etc, I'll be happy to provide.

I'm running with Windows XPsp2.

Assume I have (under 64bit Win 7) a big program installation with one main *.exe file and lots of *.dlls.

It seems to me that some but not all of these *.dlls need a registration (by regsvr32) which is done typically at installation time.
Some other *.dlls seem to need NO such registration but are accessed dynamically from the program on-demand.

So are there two such types of *.dlls ?

How do I find out which type of DLL lets say myspecial.dll is?

Now lets say that I got an older installation on an USB flash drive.
I have not the original installation setup package.

In order to make it runnable some of these DLLs must be registered now, afterwards.
Can I just register all of them by simply entering:

regsvr32 myspeciallib1.dll
regsvr32 myspeciallib2.dll
...
regsvr32 myspeciallib9.dll
?

Does it hurt if a DLL which is actually not designed for registration is registered anyway?

I am interested only in DLL handling. Other possible issues like missing Registry entries shouldn't be discussed here.

Thank you

Hello Geekdout, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It depends on what build of Windows 7 you have.

If you have a beta or RC build, then yes you can use the same product key number.

If you have a RTM build, then there is currently no product key number available for it and you cannot activate it legally. Any illegal methods is against the forum rules and cannot be discussed in this forum.

Is there any way to register just for the Store and not change your boot process by adding a password?

A:Registering for MS Store

Hello Patrickt,

If you like, you could set Windows to automatically sign in with the Microsoft account w/ password instead of a local account without a password.

This way you can also use apps that require a Microsoft account easier.

Have no idea what happened but it JUST happened in the last fifteen minutes and I ONLY went to a site I go to fifty times a day!!

Somehow this thing called Antimalware is on my computer. It keeps coming up and telling me I'm being hacked or at a risk, etc. It pops up dozens of windows at a time. I had a hard time registering here because it kept shutting my window down.

I tried uninstalling and it wouldn't allow me to.

Any suggestions???

A:Please help - Even had trouble registering here!

Hello. So i have a 500 gb hdd with windows, and a 1 tb hdd with a 500 gb ext4 partition with Ubuntu, and the other partition as ntfs. in bios, the primary boot device is the Tb Linux hard drive because it allows me to choose which OS i want to boot. so i know the hard drive is functional and connected. but when i get into windows, i cant "see" that 500 gb ntfs partition. what can i do? if i have to, i can reformat the hard drive, but id rather not. any ideas?

Hi all, just brought my Mum Windows 7 home premium, thing is she never goes on the internet, just dose letters scans and prints etc etc....how will she go on about registering her copy? and will it stop her using it in time?
Many thanks

A:Registering Windows 7

She can register it over the phone with Microsoft. If you installed it without entering the key or activating it..you will have 30 days and then you will need to activate it to continue using it.
