    If I finish to format, my PC will detect the HDD by itself? Or always I will need to open for example Wii backup manager if I want to transfer iso's?
    What I'm want to understand is if I can still use the HDD to carry general files without having problems when attaching to Wii.

    As long as you use FAT32, it won't be a problem.

    Yes your PC will detect it. It is still easier to use a backup manager to transfer your backups because it easily converts to a .wbfs file. Or you can convert on your PC and move it over to your HDD without a backup manager. Either way. Yes you can also use the same drive to store other files (anything under 4GB).
    Damn I suck!!!!

    Thanks for answering.
    Easeus didn't recognize my HDD (shows unsupported), so I try it with Fat formatter and shows an error saying the device is not ready or something, cannot pass throught. So I went to DOS and tryed fs:fat32 and it started to format but it will take looong time to do it.
    If I force to close that DOS window, will I face issues? possible a dead HDD? Orjust to try something else?

    Many thanks to both Cile and Krank for the guide. (yes I thanked both of you)

    I have been a USB Loader GX from day one, so as I had a spare WD 320GB drive I thought I would try the FAT32 all on one drive.
    I converted all my ISO's to the new drive, title, game id.
    As the guys say its a pain to do it from the beggining, but from now on, it will be a breeze.
    58 ISO's took about 2 hours.
    GX saw all the games, ran Metroid Other M to test, all OK.
    Used my Guitar Hero Metallica to add from DVD, it uses 4.29GB wbfs, so was a good test.

    I know the boys don't support USB Loader GX, but I can confirm it works a treat.

    As I use Guitar hero and Rock band I already had hermes v4, so I didn't have to install anything extra.

    Nice one fellas.
