I have been trying to install WD compass program while following user manual instructions, but next error occurred "Ignore Flush Cache bit is not changeable. Failure. No Drives Modified" Has anyone know what could it be and what should I do to solve the problem?

Are you using one of the supported WDC drives with this?

Yes, it is My Passport, and WD Compass was launched just exactly for this model http://support.wdc.c...pid=218&lang=en

My Passport or My Passport Enterprise? AFAIK only the Enterprise version works with WD Compass.

And are you installing it on Windows 8 enterprise? Also, is the drive recognized and working fine(such as no problems when copying files to it or reading from it)?

Some other basic things to check:

Make sure to run the software after copying it to your desktop,
Redownload the software from thewebsite,
Try running the setup as an administrator(right click on setup and look for 'run as administrator').

thx guys for your comments and recommendations, but the drive was faulty and I guess that was the main reason I had difficulties...I tested the drive with Data Lifeguard and it showed errors...
