I was given an external 250 gig hard drive. I'm trying to get rid of the software that's included with it (likely not on the hard drive but rather the board attached to the hard drive). I opened it up and looked around and when the drive is hooked up and turned on, the partitions of the drive show up in my computer as well as a CD drive with the software on it.
My question is whether or not I can get rid of that bundled software (since it's read only and showing up as a CD drive) and if not is there any other suggestions on doing something with the drive so that it doesn't automatically load the software?
It's a acomdata, 250 gig external drive (well the drive is western digital technically. Any info or suggestions are appreciated.
