The drives are the slimmest 5TB options in the WD brand portfolio, measuring in at 0.75 inches thick, and Western Digital says they're about palm sized.
Western Digital refreshes its My Passport lineup each year, and this year's models have a new look in Black, Blue, and Red color options. My Passport hard drives are formatted for Windows 10 and feature a USB 3.0 connector.
The My Passport for Mac option, which is formatted for macOS Mojave and features a USB-C connector, comes in a Midnight Blue color option. Mac users who have a USB-C machine and are looking at WD hard drives will want the Mac version so it will work out of the box without an adapter.
The new drives are available starting now from the Western Digital Store and Best Buy in the United States. Prices start at $79.99 for 1TB of storage and go up from there.
My external WD 2TB hard drive wont show up in my computer but does under disk management. Under Disk 1. I am runing Windows 7 and connected to USB3.0 port. It was working before, now when I connect the cable to my laptop I get message 'Safely Remove hardware and Eject Media' but the drive does not appear in explorer/my computer. Hi elizanvisser, welcome to the WD Community. Be sure to connect the Passport directly to the Mac, avoid using USB extension cables or USB hubs. If the problem continues try connecting the Passport to another Mac if possible. Why is my drive not showing up on my desktop? I have a WD Ultra Passport. It's not showing up on my desktop. Sierra OS 10.12.16. Fatal mistakes you may want to find a data recovery specialist to look at your drive if it won't work on your Mac or on a current Windows system. Was this answer helpful? Check Apple’s Disk Utility to see if an external drive is showing up. Disk Utility is within System Preferences, or you can find it using Spotlight. If it is visible, then click the option to Mount, which should make it visible on the desktop and in the External Drives option in the Finder menu.
