1 out of 5 eggsCompact, high-capacity, but beware of software

This review is from: WD My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive WDBMWV0020BRD-NESN Red

Pros: This is a compact, high-capacity drive in what appears to be a rugged case. For backing up and transferring large files, it is a convenient package.

Cons: Under Microsoft Windows, inserting this USB drive causes the operating system to request to install the Western Digital SES driver. That is, this unit is not simply an external hard drive, it offers additional features that require installation of an additional device driver.

This 'feature' is very inconvenient for one of the primary uses of the drive - moving large files between computers. Unless you want Microsoft Windows to request installation of the SES driver each time you connect the drive, every system to which you connect the drive must have the SES driver installed.

This is obviously a problem in any environment in which the computer configuration is tightly controlled.

In my experience, Seagate drives do not have this problem.

This drive operates correctly under Linux, which appears to have a built-in SES driver. The dmsg output from Ubuntu 13.10 shows the SES hardware being recognized correctly.

Other Thoughts: Buy a Seagate drive in order to transfer large files between computers.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi DANIEL T, we apologize for any inconvenience. Western Digital My Passport hard drives require a special communications channel (SCSI) between the PC and the hard drive to enable certain features such as password protection, LED control, and access to the drives label if applicable. Please note that the SES driver is not required for your drive to be recognized by your computer; you may still use it just like any other external USB memory to copy and paste your files. The link below further explains what the SES driver is and why it is needed.
