    Need Help Formatting Hard Drive into WBFS

    Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.

    Hi there to all. Im fairly new to soft modding and new to this site.
    First off, I've done all the soft modding and got the Homebrew channel and everything needed to play my backup wii games. The problem occurred when I got to the part of formatting my external hard drive into WBFS, I got stuck. I have a laptop hard drive, the brand is Hitachi, and it is in an enclosure powered by a usb cord. When I formatted using WBFS Manager 3.0, it says that it has formatted my hard drive "F" into WBFS and it is now ready to use. I then transferred my backup .iso game into the external hard drive. After the transfer, I plugged it to the bottom USB port of my Wii. By the way I am using USB Loader GX. Anyway, when I went into USB Loader GX, it says no games. It also says that my hard drive is in NTFS, but then how? I already formatted my hard drive into WBFS.

    If anyone can help or direct me, I'd appreciate it.
    Thanks a lot!

    First you should make a post in the Introduce Yourself section. You will get an official welcome along with a bunch of great links to help get you started.

    We generally recommend formatting to FAT32. Guide HERE.
