    Go to My PC, right click the drive pointed to, it's your WD drive.

    You will get a screen like this. Ignore all the other stuff, it's from my machine. Click "Format".

    You'll get a screen like this. Important....please read carefully and follow posted instructions.

    Leave the red part alone, accept what is there.

    Type whatever name you would like in the yellow box, anything. Don't make it too long. Just something that you will recognize at a glance.

    After you have clicked "Start", the last step on this one, you will be prompted to continue. Go ahead. It won't take long. Just moments.

    When done, the drive should appear in My PC, with the name you gave it, and as "D:" drive, and be totally empty.

    Post whatever screenshots you wish, My PC and Disk Management would be nice.


    Any questions? Ask before you start, please.
