Need help to get my HDD formatted correctly
I have Winows 7 64bit.
Hi I softmodded my wii at some place (paid for it). I read some guides and it seemed I had to use the format WBFS on the external HD that I bought. I formatted it to one big WBFS partition in the “Configurable USB Loader” that was on my wii when I got it back from the store. After that I used the program WBFS Manager 3.0 to put my game iso-files on the External HD.
This worked like a charm until I read another thread that you could use FAT32 instead of WBFS. This seemed very interesting to try out since I was also having problems with some games refusing to transfer to the hard drive.
So I formatted the drive and here I am. It is currently write protected and totally empty, without any formatting type. I can’t format it via windows own application because it always some kind of prompt message “the drive is used by something else” or right now when I’m doing as I type it’s just stuck.
I need help with this, I’ve tried some apps like “HDD Low Level Format Tool” but it seems to get stuck with the write protection (which can’t be deactivated because I can’t detect the drive in explorer). Help me; How can I get this back to FAT32 so it can be read by Windows again? NTFS would do too!
Hope someone can help me! /Anton
