    I believe WBFS Manager is only useful for WBFS drives. Try one of the other game managers. You'll find they are more feature filled anyways. I still occasionally use WBFS Manager for the no thrills basic experience but I have a mostly WBFS drive. Otherwise I use Wii Backup Fusion.

    Quick question and then I may be able to help you out.
    1. Is there games already transferred to the WBFS formatted drive?
    2. When you first formatted, did you use fat/fat16/fat32/exfat?

    I know you said Fat32 but most formatting programs only format in fat or exfat, thats why I ask
