thanks for the details on how to do this stuff. noobee here and having to figure out how to do this for me and friends and don't have a clue what I'm doing.
This is not the first program I have downloaded. Many of the programs (NUSD is another that does this same thing) When I try to execute it, the program closes and windows "A problem causes this program to stop working correctly." Does anyone know what I can do to execute these programs without window errors. I am trying to format my HDD but can't get the manager program to work.
Also, I am a little nervous about this formatting. I have a Iomega Prestige Destop HD 1TB. I want to partion it so I can run HBC, isos, backups, and possibly backup my movies and pictures from my computer. What is the best way to partition the drive and how much space should I use for each partition.
Do I do the NTFS first? How do I get the WBFS Manager onto the Wii to partition the WBFS portion. Am I right to say that NTFS will run my wads, HBC and such without FAT32 portion?
I have done great from installing HBC, to making backups, to getting movies and music to play, burning isos, but this HD is scary. LOL Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I use WFBS I just open it up on the computer and format drive still pops up even after I have formated. Just close the popup and in the fbfs program select your drive and hit load. Your games should pop up.

I would try to delete the wbfs manager and re download it, it could have been a broken file. Other that that I have no idea. Haven't come across that prob yet.

what am i missing?
thanks for the command listing it was very helpful OP
Hi I have a 100gb laptop portable drive in fat32 format, I use wii backup manager and transfer the ISO`s to a WBFS file and copy straight to my hard drive, it`s alot smaller than an ISO and run directly from the usb loader.
1 drive 1 format and can still read on all comps
I had problems with "could not open drive" etc, until I realized that my Sandisk Cruzer thumb drive came with preinstalled software and was already formatted NFS. So if you get a new thumb drive, format it first!
