Windows 7: Code 10 in Device Manager, Unable to Discover WD 2TB

What version of the Discovery software are you running? WD has a version 1.61, released in August. None of their software actually lists compatibility with Windows 7 yet.

Did anything on your network change? Do you HAVE to use the Discovery software? You could log in to your router, find out the network address of the device (shouldn't it be static or is that what the software is for?), and map it using the address. Out of curiosity, what AV are you using, are you using Homegroups?

Not using Homegroups, yea the ip is static, and im using Microsoft Security Essentials AV. The discovery Software was working before with Norton Internet Security 2009, but apparently the firewall was resulting in Blue Screen Probs so i uninstalled it and and was told to Install MSE so..

Btw, you log into router how would i go about doing that, im new to all this stuff?
