This is the small partition that WD includes with their drives and is to be used with their special software. You don't need the partition nor the software.

Attach the drive to your Mac, open Disk Utility, click on the partition tab, remove the 10 GB NTFS partition (highlight the partition and press the minus button and press apply). Next, erase and re-format the entire drive as Mac OS Extended Journaled (HFS+).

Note: If you have any data on that drive you wish to keep, copy it off to somewhere else before formatting or removing the NTFS partition.
