I'm not the only one unhappy about the virtual cdrom that pops up when you add a Western Digital MyBook Essential. A lot of people are looking for a way to get rid of it.

There is a question/answer about it.

And that points to the Western Digital page for Mac and Western Digital page for Windows on how to remove it.

This involves changing the firmware in the device. I will attempt this.
