    What guide you talking about. And if you format it to WBFS it will not be recognized by pc.

    I used this guide

    How to Store/Load Wii Games via USB Hard Drive on System Menu 4.0 [Slick Tricks Part 2]

    and I did not get a chance to format it WBFS...I just put delete partition since it was the only one there and it's gone and I cannot see it before I even get to format

    Have you tried to run WBFS 3.0 and see if it will recognize it.

    transfer games

    if your other drive is already in wbfs format, you open wbfs manager and load your old drive. on the bottom left is a spot that says drive to drive. once you open it,click your new drive, select all games on top side then click copy to this drive and its done. make sure both drives are plugged into usb 2.0 ports or it will literally take FOREVER! hope this helps. on average it takes less than 2 min per game
