    partions on 500gb HD question

    i have the 500gb HD and i did the wbfs partion as primary so i can play my games. all that works great. but when i connect the HD to my ps3 it does not detect it. that is because the wbfs is the primary partion right?? can i set the wbfs as secondary for a while and not damage any of the games i have in there?? i just need to use the HD to move all my data in the old ps3 HD and buy a new HD and move it all to it. any help would be awesome!!!

    You could try Easus I think this may let you do multi partitions without loseing your data.
    Only the Wii needs WBFS, add partitions for NTFS for ISO's and FAT32 for mod files.

    If you have 2 partitions you mat not need any more.

    Easus is a partioning program.
    Google it.
