We've been shipping our new My Book and My Passport drives with WD SmartWare software for a few months now. During that time we've been listening to our customers. As a result of the feedback, we've developed some improvements to the software.

There are two steps to this update. You'll find detailed instructions below.

  1. Update the drive firmware
  2. Update the software.

This update is only for products that originally shipped with WD SmartWare and will not function on previous generations of products. This update does not work on My Book for Mac, My Passport for Mac or My Book Studio.
