    Use windows disk management. Go to administrative tools, then computer management then you will see it. Select the drive and either format the whole drive to fat 32 or create 2 partitions one being about 1 gig. Make partitions primary and active. You will then format your large partition to WBFS with WBFS Manager 3.0

    When you select your drive you will want to select create new partion also you should give your partions drive letters like x and z. There is a button that says change partion name or something like that.
