    I'm looking into purchasing a portable hard drive and was aiming towards the WD My Passport 500GB.

    This one:


    Anyone have any problems with this hard drive?

    Any recommendations?

    If you can look past the VCD (which can be disabled via software from WD's site), WD drives are always a good bet.

    I have two of the one you have, but in black, one 500GB and the other 320GB, plus a My Book Essential 2TB Second Edition.

    So far, so good.

    I plan on picking up a 1TB My Passport to use a as a media drive with my WD HD TV Media Player.

    Is there a way to erase the VCD? Because if you disabled it, it would just still be on the hdd and take up space right?
