    Issue with my Flash Drive

    I really hope someone can help me with this. I have WBFS Manager 3.0.1 and Wanakoko's USB Loader 1.5. I was able to format a flash drive to work and even backed up 2 of my games. The WBFS Manager read everything great, but after the first time I removed the flash from the Wii and I try to access the drive it gives me an error -6 and says the drive is not WBFS formatted. I tried using a few other loaders but none of them are able to read the drive in the Wii. Anyone have any ideas?

    Make sure your cIOS is installed correctly.

    Make sure the dricve is plugged in the bottom USB port.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    DataVamp - Did the Flash Drive work in the Wii? If not, the drive was not formated right.

    When you plug it back into your computer, are you selecting the right drive in the WBFS manager? Windows doesn't always assign drive letters consistently, and by default, windows does not like WBFS drives because it doesn't know what to do with them. Windows also likes to format drives that it doesn't know what to do with. I accedentilly formated my WBFS drive, and lost all my games. If something like that happened, then your Flash Drive wouldn't be WBFS anymore, and WBFS manager wouldn't recognize it.

    To recap: Double check the drive letter (it will be the one Windows wants to format). Don't accidently format your WBFS drive.

    Good luck,
