What is Virtual CD Manager for Mac

Virtual CD Manager... A small portion of drive space on your new My Passport or My Book hard drive has been used to create a Virtual CD (VCD). The VCD contains the WD SmartWare installation software, the encryption and password protection application, User Manuals, and other resource files. The VCD looks like an actual CD volume and appears on the screen each time you connect your WD drive to the computer.

The VCD is necessary if you wish to install WD SmartWare or if you want to use the encryption and password protection features on the drive.

If you don't wish to run WD SmartWare or use the security features, you can disable the VCD following the steps below. The VCD can be re-enabled by running the VCD manager.

Infuriating software!! The hoops you have to jump through to remove this pre-installed garbage from Western Digital disks are a total waste of time! Don't pre-install this garbage on my drives. If users want this software, they will add it themselves. This kind of garbage pre-installed confuses many people: "What is this CD doing on my computer?" I knew what it was, and was very irritated by the amount of time I had to waste getting it removed. Not to mention that half the instructions were to run software that was hard to find, and then failed.
