    External Hard Drive Formatting Message

    Hi,

    I had my Wii hacked a few days ago, and bought an external hard drive .
    I would love to put more games on it, but when I plug it into my PC, it gives me an error message asking to format the hard drive before use. I know formatting normally wipes the drive clean.
    How do I add new games without loosing what is already on the external hard drive?

    Read the forum rules. Purchasing backup games that you do not own the originals for is piracy. Format the drive and install your original discs to it. I recommend the fat32 guide. The link is in the spoiler below.

    the hdd is proabably formatted to wbfs. You can use wii backup manager to handle your games, there is a link in my signature.
