I just installed Windows 10 on my MacBook (Early 2015, OSX El Capitan 10.11.2), and after everything set up I tried to plug in my External Hard Drive. I made sure this HD would and does work in Windows 10 by plugging it into another laptop I have running only Windows 10, and it worked fine there.
When I plug it into my MacBook with Windows 10 running, it:
- Shows the notification asking what I want to do with the HD, I close it.
- Doesn't show a Windows Explorer popup appears with the contents of the HD.
After this I go to Windows Explorer manually and try to open it. 2 things happen with this.
- I notice the drive is called "Local Drive" instead of its actual name, "My Passport" (named that because the drive is WD My Passport).
- When I go to open the HD, it gives me an error I have never seen before,
When I first saw this I safely ejected the HD, and I got the BSOD with an error of
KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE. I guessed it was a problem with the safe eject feature, so I rebooted and ejected it without the safe eject function, and it gave me the same BSOD error.
Before anyone marks this as "off-topic", this is about Apple's drivers in Windows, not Windows itself, as the causes of the BSOD error suggest. None of the Windows updates seem to fix it, and I seem to be unable to find any driver fixes from apple.
Update: I can no longer even plug the HD into the computer, because when I plug it in it plays the little "Device Connected" chime, then the computer gives me the BSOD withe the same error.
