The last link has other software to test HDD's, I don't use them and stick with those from the first three, and more heavily on Seatools.
As always when downloading software from other than the manufacturer check for other software that could be installed and uncheck it if you do not wish to install.

Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.

WD no longer has the .iso version of DLG, they have made the move to creating a bootable USB. WD sure wasn't thinking about the older systems that don't boot from USB.
