    Having trouble with wbfs manager

    I'm using a 1tb western digital element hard drive and whenever I use wbfs manager to transfer games onto the hard drive it loads the games onto it part way and then just hangs. A few games have successfully loaded, and ripping from the wii disc drive works, but wbfs manager is giving me issues.

    Not all HD are compatible with WBFS, make sure you formatted from the WII to WBFS format.

    its formatted in wbfs format, and some of the games worked before, so I assume its compatible.

    There may be a problem with the drive. Try formatting the drive again, but this time use computer management to format it. Or you can use this to make sure it's formatted correctly.

    No you format to something like NTFS first in computer management, then use WBFS Manager to format it to WBFS. This is to just make sure your starting with a clean, unformatted drive to rule out any other problems.
