    USB HDD not Recognized by WBFS MANAGER

    my WD HDD is wbfs formatted and loaded with 400 games that play fine on my wii 4.2u that I softmodded. this wii has the d3-2 drive so it can not read back ups and in order to add more iso to it this has to be done using wbfs manager. when i connect the hdd usb cord to my pc and then start wbfs manager and select drive E it wont read the wd hdd. when i first connected the wd hdd to my pc it showed up as being on drive E and my pc said it found new hardware so i then let it install the WD 1 tb hd. I als tried a couple other wbfs type managers and none will read the WD USB HDD

    Do the games still play when the HDD is plugged in on the Wii at this moment?

    When you plug it back into your PC, (do not format obviously - just click cancel if it asks) go to Computer Management/Disk Management and change or allocate the drive a letter, it was prob removed when you did the install a new drive procedure, give it W for Wii

    Now fire up WBFS Manager and load Drive X - whatever you gave it.
