Post subject:  Bug: program does not detect WD external HDD on Windows 7

I have Western Digital My Passport Studio 320 GB external HDD:
http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=571
HDD is formatted for PC (NTFS).
Program does not detect HDD as a removable drive. Instead of the drive it displays "USB Composite Device" device, for which I can't assign a specific letter, define autorun behavior and so on.
Program version is 4.1.5.800.
OS is Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (RTM). On Windows XP x32 everything is working fine.
Please advice what can be done.
Thanks in advance.

I am having the exact same issue. I had the same problem on Vista when I first discovered this program and they fixed it. I was impressed enough with their service I bought the program. Hopefully they can do the same again.

Hello,
I apologize for so long response.

Please post here the technical information on this device. In order to find it, open device properties (Quick stop menu -> right click -> select "Device properties"), switch to "Technical Information" tab and press "copy to clipboard" button.

xxJackxx, thanks for the information.

Our device detection has some issues when detecting such hard drives. We will fix it in one of the closest versions. Now as a workaround you may try to disable this option:

This will hide unnecessary to stop devices (such as mice, cameras, printers and etc) but your hard drive will be displayed properly. Let me know if this helps.

xxJackxx, also I wonder what version of 'USB Safely Remove' do you have?

Yes, unchecking that option did allow it to detect the drive. Running version 4.1.5.800

I don't have the drive with me right now, will try the workaround with disabling the option when I'll have it back.

Hi,

I tried the workaround and it seems to work. The only problem is that I have a message saying "The device <device name> is going to be disabled, because its driver doesn't support the authentic "safe removal" feature". Message appears each time when I want to remove the device. Not sure if it this message impacts anything. Also I can set an option to don't show the message again so the message itself is not a big problem.

Thanks in advance if you'll fix the error fully ok in the next version - I will try to check when the next version will be out and report in this thread. For the moment I will proceed with the workaround.
Thanks for your help!
