I bought WD My Book Essential 2.0 for my backup on Windows XP. It came as FAT32. I followed instructions to format the drive to NTFS. Problem is the manual says to go to downloads and download My Book utilites after doing this. It does not tell you what to download. There's about 6 different choices and I can't seem to get an answer from WD. They have the worst customer service I have ever encountered. Anyone have this version and can you help me.
