Is the WD passport powered from the USB port? If so, you can't use it that way. ALL external drives must have their own power supply.
Once you get the correct drive (or a power supply for the one you have) all you need to do is plug the drive in and you will be asked if you want to format it. It only takes a few minutes and then you will be able to use it.

Wheree is you get this ?
Quite right. I plugged it into a powered hub and it took off. However, I think the hub is slowing the data transfer since playback quality stinks. Looks like I will have to get a different drive. Thanks for the help.
If you have one host and one device, what would be a factor to slow down your only one connection ?
