    I don't know why your old one worked well with NTFS, but you are not the first person to have a problem with it. Just try FAT32, and if it works, great; if it doesn't, switch it back to NTFS or buy a new HDD.

    As Joostin says, NTFS is new to the CFG WORLD (newish), and it does say in many of the tutorials that you should use FAT32. I think you were probably just fortunate that your 250Gb worked fine. I would follow Joostins advice, either format a partition to FAT32, or format a partition to WBFS using WBFS Manager.
    I use WBFS but I have a 250Gb drive dedicated for wii games only.

    If I use 'Easeus Partition Master Home Edition' will it erase the stuff on my HD? for some guides it says in red 'This WILL erase everything' but on this it didn't, I want to create another partition from the free space to FAT32 but I don't want to format the whole drive

    What guide are you referring to ? Easeus can do many things so no one can answer that question unless you provide more info.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    That guide DOES say you will lose all of your data. Not much point in making two FAT32 partitions....better to backup your data and format the drive.

    EDIT: I see that you have a 2TB drive, never mind about the full FAT32 thing. Is the drive on the compatibility list?

    apologies Krank, you replied while I was writing LOL
    No need for an apology, and I agree with you.

    I tried using Easus and I had trouble with it, Most likely user error on my part. I found the best way was to transfer the data to another drive, (I borrowed one for a couple of hours from a friend), then create your partitions as required and then transfer your data back.
    There is most likely a way to create a partition without erasing data but it would probably be safer to backup your data regardless.

    (apologies Krank, you replied while I was writing LOL)

    Yes it is, on the WikiTemp site it has my drive on the list which is a '2TB iomega Prestige Desktop HD' and it said that the drive works perfectly with the USB Loader,

    My HD is NTFS and I really don't want to format my whole drive to FAT32 only part of my free space like maybe 500GB or wtv, if I can't then don't freak out because I was told that I can do so, thank god I didn't load up the drive with tons of stuff only a couple seasons of South Park and 2 games Bully and Mario Galaxy 2 so it won't take too long to backup those files, I just thought I could partition a part of my free space without it deleting any info but I guess not, so guys if Easeuse isn't the best to use what do u recommend?
