    WBFS drive to drive problem.

    I am trying to copy all my games to another drive for my cousin. Problem is my computer won't recognize both drives at the same time. It will only recognize one. I have no idea why. They are both partitioned using WBFS and both are WD My book Essentials. I don't want to have to put all my games onto this other HDD one at a time. That will take ages. Is there any way to transfer them from drive to drive?

    P.S. I am using windows 7 build 7232. To lazy to update to the RTM.

    If you have the storage space just extract all games as isos and then drop them onto the other drive as separate operations. If you are limited with space do it in 2 or 3 operations, life is too short to spend too much time trying to figure out little issues like this.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    I'm not sure whats wrong, but I can confirm it does work. When I plug two usb drives into my PC, (XP) another pane comes in view below the the normal two. You can then copy from one to another.

    I don't have the storage space. Plus I don't have all my games. Lots are on my hdd for the wii only. I can't even access the wbfs formatted drives. My os says they need to be formatted so getting any info off them is basically impossible. that is why I wan't to do a drive to drive. Maybe I can try it on my xp boot I have on here just need to install WBFS. Hopefully that will work. Till then anyone have anymore ideas? Also I tried assigning one of the HDD's a new letter and it assigned them both. Is that not weird? I didn't have them both plugged in when I did it either.

    EDIT: It seems windows 7 wouldn't recognize them both but XP had no problem at all.
