    It states that in order to do the task, it MUST restart the computer. I know that I selected the right hard drive to be reformat. Maybe because it's not primarily a Fat 32 it has to do this?

    I may just restart the computer outright (NOT in the program to see what happens). Are there any other programs I could use that you think WOULDN'T make me do this?

    Which version of Windows are you running?

    Windows 7 actually. And it's saying the same thing after I restarted the computer (NOT THROUGH THE EASEUS PROGRAM), I must restart the computer in order to do this task. Hmm, like I said, I may just stick with using USB Thumb Drives.

    What's strange to me, is that it detected my hard drive (after failing several times to do so, I may have had it plugged in wrong), and found F ZERO GX, but it wouldn't detect the WBFS files that I had set in there properly.

    So naturally, since my USB stick was working, I just moved/copied over most of the essential files like WADS, SOURCE, APPS, GAMES, NANDS, and SAVES from the USB THUMB DRIVE to the USB Hard Drive, but after doing that, it would say the hard drive is not usable (I can't remember what exactly it stated). I haven't used any of the WBFS program partitions, I didn't think it necessary since the files are already in WBFS format. In terms of an actual hard drive I'm essentially back to square one.

    I have a friend who's got a spare external USB HDD he's not using, I may just use his to test and use for the Wii. When Black Friday rolls around, I may just pick up a 32gb, 64gb, or maybe even a 128gb USB Thumb Drive that will inevitably be on sale, preferably a PNY brand since that's the one I'm using on my Wii right now.

    Any fast ones you guys could recommend off of New Egg? Sand Disk seems to be getting the average rating, and I'm not sure how well Corsair is working with Wii (though it is on the comparability list right?).

    Are you running the program as an administrator?

    I bought a WD Passport USB drive as it was on the compatibility list. It was cheap, and being that its made by western digital i thought it would be a good one (Pob3008 even has a few pics of one on his guide). I followed Pob3008s FAT32 guide and reformatted it with easeUS. All went well until i started copying games to it. A couple of times i got a windows write delay failed. So i turned of the hot swap and it hasn't done it since. I can't believe how slow these drives are. They seem to take ten times longer than they should. It seems quite common for these drives and their doesn't seem to be a fix. Just Google WD Passport very slow, and you will see what i mean. Its not a driver issue, as i have installed all the right drivers. All the other drives work okay. Although i think it is a Windows issue. It seems to be quicker reripping all my games on the Wii. I should of checked the reviews before buying it. Lost all faith in WD. Will try it on Linux at some point to see if its any faster.

    My WD Elements drive performs just fine under Windows and it only spins at 5400 RPM SATA II USB 2 and no drivers were needed. Which model Passport did you get? Check to see what type of WD hard drive it has in it's shell. Also, the compatibility list should not be taken as "buy this exact drive" but as "drives in this line have worked". You could end up buying an outdated drive for no reason at all.

    I was angry with myself for buying it when i couldn't really afford it. I took it back and got a full refund. They didn't even offer to exchange it. I can't believe that WD sell portable drives that aren't plug & play. I think i will stick to flash media. Not got enough games to justify having a HDD.

    It is possible that the one you bought was just outdated as I've said before. My WD Elements is plug and play and performs just fine.

    MAC user

    I don't want to sift through 32 pages.

    I have a MAC. I have a 500mb WD portable hard drive that has movies on it that I want to play on my friend's Wii. I'm a little bit confused about what I'm supposed to do. I was following the steps from the guide on the first page and I feel like I'm missing something. Would anyone be so kind as to share the information I need?
