WD SES Device USB Device driver not found from old internal hard drive

I have an old Western Digital drive that came with Dell Inspiron One 2305 and replaced it after 5 years. There are some files I need from it now and I'm trying to connect via usb to sata. The WD volume does not show up. I got to device manager and found it listed in in unknown devices and it needs a driver to install. Where do I go to find the driver. Western digital site basically said that I need to go to the manufactures webstie (dell) for the driver but once im on dell i see nothing that hints at a Western Digital Driver. Here is the Wester Digital info from there site


Here is Dell Website of the model I use drivers section[/B]

EDIT****

I think I found it, would it in fact be this driver . It is listed on the availale drivers for the model I have after entering my express service code. I assume it is but would feel better if someone could confirm this to be true.

Got this after extracting the driver..

Installation

1. Extract .zip file to a known path
2. Copy "WD.bat" and "WD4082.exe" to root directory of a bootable USB key.
3. Boot from USB key and ensure drive path includes WD.bat and WD4082.exe.
4. Type "WD" and hit "Enter".
5. Firmware update will provide messaging indicating successful update.

Note: Update checks current firmware version and will not run on identical version.





I'm worried cause it says it will not run on identical system, should I just try with a different computer?
