Windows 7 Pro and Ultimate on 32-bit & 64-bit boxes
 
 

I downloaded and installed 'WD My Book Pro, Pro II, Premium, and Premium II FireWire driver' from WD Support > Downloads > Legacy External > My Book Premium Edition, rebooted and the problem was gone.

After the reboot, the following drivers are listed for the device:
C:\Windows\system312\DRIVERS\disk.sys
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\partmgr.sys

and WD&External_HDD_Button_&_Lights is no longer there.
