If you have a 12-in-1 media reader, or something like that I will bet that disabling that will make the error go away.  If it is something you use, I would look into getting an updated software/driver for that device.  (I'm guessing the PC is an HP?)

Were you using a CD or some other storage device on your computer and removed it before this message appeared ?

This error message is a nuisance, but it is not harmful.

Likely the media reader (if you have one), or possibly a zip drive, USB external, or even the floppy.  But, this is definitely not referring to your system disk, so no worries.

I would disable any of the above listed devices one by one, until the error goes away.

So I'm concluding it has something to do with WD My Book USB Device.

And I should just ignore it?

Hi I too got the same issue that you had mentioned today. I went to device manager and disabled my floppy drive. To do this I right clicked on mycomputer icon, selected properties, hardware, devicemanager button and selected the Floppy disk drives, Floppy disk drive and disabled the Floopy disk drive. After I restarted it did not appear again.
Hope this issue should be because while  installing some online antivirus or anti spyware tools and while it was in the mid of installation it might have stopped or else you should have restored your windows from your previous backup / last good known configuration,
