I am trying to install a WD External HD on a Windows Vista 64 bit computer. Model # is WDBACX0010BBK-01
When I plug it in, windows asks to install the driver, but it can't find the actual driver anywhere, so it asks for me to point it in the right direction. I downloaded the SES driver from the WD site, and put it in C:\Program Files\Western Digital\SES -- however, after the install (and reboot), there is no Western Digital file (I have hidden folders shown as well).
Through this whole process, the drive doesnt show up under My Computer, but it does show up in device manager with a yellow question mark next to it. I've tried uninstalling it from device manager and starting over, I've also tried 'updating' the driver from device manager as well.
I am at a loss for what to do.
As a side note, I know the drive works, because my macbook pro recognizes it, and it is formatted for NTFS.
Thanks in advance.
