LOADING CONTENT ON YOUR DRIVE
MY PASSPORT WIRELESS
Using a Wi-Fi Connection to Load Content
When you first connect to the My Passport Wireless Wi-Fi network, none of your media is on
the drive. You can start copying files from your computer or other devices on the network to
the drive using Wi-Fi.
From your computer or computers and devices on the same network
1. Check your settings and make sure your computer is connected to your My Passport
Wireless drive or the same wireless network your drive is connected to. The drive can
act as a wireless client device on your Wi-Fi network so everyone on the network can
access it (like a regular network attached storage device).
2. On your computer, open the File Explorer (PC) window or Finder (Mac).
3. Do one of the following:
For a Windows PC, in the left pane of the File Explorer window, click Network >
MyPassport (or name you assigned) > Public.
For a Mac computer, in the left pane of the Finder window in the SHARED section,
double-click MyPassport (or name you assigned) > Public.
The drive’s Public folder opens.
4. Drag and drop files from your computer or other computers and devices on the network
to the drive’s Public folder.
From a mobile device with WD My Cloud
1. Go to Settings on your mobile device and make sure your mobile device is connected to
your My Passport Wireless drive.
2. Tap the My Cloud icon on your device.
3. Tap the Public folder.
4. In the top right corner of the Public pane, tap the omni menu icon (three horizontal dots)
and then tap Add Photo.
5. Tap Camera Roll.
6. Select your items.
7. In the bottom right corner of the dialog, tap the upload icon.
The files have been uploaded to the My Passport Wireless drive. Now you can delete
them from your mobile device if you are trying to save space, or leave them on the
mobile device for backup.
