    I've had that happen before with wbfs manager. Did you try closing wbfs manager completely and then re-run it without removing the hard drive from your computer. For some reason if you try loading the drive before plugging in your hard drive it will give you an error and keep giving the error even if the drive is plugged in. The only way to fix it is by closing and restarting wbfs manager then reselect and load the correct drive.

    Cool HDD Problems

    First of all, I would download the free Western Digital drive checking program to see if your drive has gone bad. I am currently using only SamSung HDD drives as they run much cooler than WD or Maxtor etc. Also, is anything else on your computer messing up or just this one HDD? I had two HDD one Maxtor & one WD that were messing up on two Wii's. Replaced both of them with new Samsung drives, & now working just fine. Just a thought. ( & Amzaon have some amazing prices on Samsung 1TB HDD's).
