Wd mybook driver for mac

Yeah, I've heard about USB power not being enough.

I did try just plugging that external USB hard drive before but it didn't detect it it's ok though when plugged on a PC, no problem. May the EFI, the iMac's firmware needs an update.


Software & Downloads

PC or mac: Apr 12, 9: It's a driver issue by macOS Sierra It seems to mount and not switch off whenever I reboot it should automatically turn on. I also installed anything the app from Western Digital that's compatible. This happened after I also updated the firmware for it for good measure and power cycled it. Though I'm not using the Smartware backup but the Time Machine one. I wonder how the Smartware backups macOS stuff though if it's a cloner that updates itself like Time Machine that's even better than Time Machine when you're on a hurry to use the Mac- you can just boot it up as an emergency on the external drive, if the main install suddenly doesn't work.

Apr 12, It has nothing to do with the WD drivers being bad or nt compatible, but the way the WD drivers are working is countering the drivers that are already in Macos and the OSXs before.
