    USB harddrive

    My harddrive was working fine. Now it does not load on the wii or show up on the computer with wbfs manager or wii backup manager. How can I go into the harddrive to format it to start over? Is there a program that will reconize the drive on the computer?

    1. what I (computer geek) use for my Wii USB
    2. virus-free (check it using virustotal.com)
    3. compatible with up to Win7x64
    4. easy-to-use
    5. small (3mb)
    6. fantastic
    7. quick
    8. FREE

    You can't reinstall drives, mate.

    I think you mean "reinstall the drivers for your HDD"

    That's easy: it's a DEAD one! LOL

    Seriously though, plug the drive into your Windows-based computer, right-click on MY COMPUTER and go to STORAGE -> DISK MANAGMENT. You should see your computer's internal hard drive with Windows on it, a DVD drive if you have it, and the last one one should be your USB drive. Make sure it's the right drive by checking its size on the left where it says "Disk X Removable XXX.XGB Online"; you DO NOT want to format/repartition your internal hard drive or SD card.

    If there's no drive there then either your hard drive, enclosure, USB cable, USB port or Windows OS has gone bad and you'll need to start troubleshooting: start with the easy/cheap stuff first like swapping the USB port and/or cable.

    If you see your drive, but it says "Not Initialized", you'll need to right-click on it and choose "Initialize".

    Once you see your drive and it's been initialized then the program I mentioned earlier, Aomei Partition Assistant Home Edition (free download - Google it), should allow you to check the drive for errors and format it however you like: NTFS or FAT32 with 32-byte clusters. If you're going to format WBFS you'll need whatever app you used to do it before.

    Let me know how it goes & if you have any questions/comments/concerns.
