    I followed the guide exactly but I get an error with WBFS Manager.
    When I select the drive (I: in my case) and select format I get an error that the drive couldn't be formatted.

    I also got an error when I was at step 10 of the EASEUS part of the guide, after I clicked apply it started but after a while I got an error. And my HDD was not formatted. But after my rebooting my pc it WAS formatted. =S

    Help please. =)

    U can use windows to format it, plug in USB right click then format,
    make sure u use drop down box to select FAT32 and u can do a quick format.
    Then thru windows just create an empty folder named WBFS.
    Then use Wii Backup manager NOT wbfs manager. Then just click drive and select
    ex hdd letter. Then select location of other games.

    When I go to format and the drop down box I can only chose between NTFS and exFAT. I know that FAt32 should be there because I used it before but now it is not there..
    Can I use EASEUS to format it to FAT32 like I did with the second partition while following the guide?

    Thanks btw. =)

    Alright guys I guess I have a stupid question...
    Everything is good until I get to step 7.
    When I go to "create" on my 2nd partition the Create icon is grayed out and I can't select it. Any help?

    I did a search because I know I remember seeing somewhere on this site that the Western Digital Elements 500GB USB 2.0 has some pre-installed green switching which powers down the drive and can cause issues. I can't find it for the life of me. Anyone remember where that thread was? I just want to be sure the thing doesn't power down in the middle of operations.

    Thanks.

    P.S. DO NOT buy the Cirago HDD family as both WODE and straight Wii USB have intermittent connectivity. It's there one minute, the next it's not. Works fine in Win7, Ubuntu, XP, but sketchy at best on Wii and WODE.

    Just FYI on that one.

    You can look at the Western Digital website to download software to turn off the spindown function, if that's what you are referring to.

    when opening configurable usb loader having issues

    When i open my loader it automatically boots my fat 32 partition instead of my wtfs partition is there a way to change this so the wtfs boots on opening as this makes it very hard for my 8 year old to use.
