Load up your Windows software and download all the updates etc then connect the external drive to your computer and (if you are lucky) transfer your files over to your new drive. Please post back if you have any more problems or questions. + 0 Votes ditto with WD Data Lifeguard Tools nepenthe0 Updated - 6 years ago Curiously, WD is aggressively promoting its new VelociRaptor 320GB 10,000rpm 16MB cache SATA-II HD, but the WD utility has not been updated for SATA-II. I was curious about this post, because I plan to replace my current WD 320GB 7,200rpm 8MB cache HD with the new VelociRaptor drive when VelociRaptor becomes available later this month. Alas, I'll be compelled to translate the technogeek packaged with the drive. At least you folks speak English... Thanks.
