    Problems with formatting external hard drive.

    Today I bought a 500 GB external hard drive and the brand or company is iPro drive. I tried formatting it through WBFS manger v3.0 and it worked but it can't transfer my backup .ciso files. So I tried wbfs intelligent V6 and it would say incorrect or unformatted partition. It said the same thing when i clicked format partition. What can i do to fix this?

    My other problem is: I changed my backup to an .iso and i put it on my USB hardrive. when i go to launch it through USB Loader GX it says IMET Header is wrong then when i pres play it hangs at a black screen and i have to fully turn off my Wii. What could be making this happen.

    Please help I had no problem with my 2 GB USB flash drive. Please help.

    Try formatting the hardrive with Windows back into FAT32. Then attempt to format it with WBFS Intelligent.

    Is exFAT 32 the same as FAT 32. I did not see FAT as one of the options.

    exFAT32? I have never heard of it. Are you sure you are using a Windows operating system?
