WD SmartWare Virtual CD Manager
WD SmartWare Virtual CD Manager is a Virtual CD manager for your WD external drive. A small portion of drive space on your new My Passport or My Book hard drive has been used to create a Virtual CD (VCD).
On your new My Passport or My Book hard drive is a small portion of drive space which has been used to create a Virtual CD (VCD) which appears on your computer as an actual CD volume. The VCD contains the WD SmartWare installation software, Drive Lock application, User Manuals, and other resources, and it appears on the screen each time you connect your WD drive to the computer.
The VCD is necessary if you wish to install WD SmartWare or if you want to use the Drive Lock feature.
If you don't wish to run WD SmartWare or use the Drive Lock feature, you can safely disable the VCD. The VCD can be re-enabled if you wish to use WD SmartWare or Drive Lock at a later date.
