    Angry HDD problems

    I created a partition on my HDD, but formatted it to ntfs.( We needed to get some files off the old pc before reformatting it.) I am having trouble with games loading now, even direct rips to the HDD. I created a wbfs partition on my pc to transfer the games to while I did the HDD partition. I didn't have any issues prior to doing this. Could the ntfs formatted partition be causing the issues? If so do I just delete this partition, or will I need to start from scratch and reformat the HDD?

    it could be the NTFS partition since the wii is essentially trying to connect to 2 things at once, I'd say backup data erase both then redo the whole thing as WBFS.

    try setting the WBFS partition to "Primary" and "Active" in the windows formatter thing... This cleared up the problem for me!

    To do this Right click on the WBFS partition and you will be presented with the options mentioned above

    I'll check and see if it isn't already, that will be a much quicker process than reformatting.

    It is set to primary and active already. I put the files on the ntfs partition onto the pc and formatted that to fat32. Could I just use wbfs manager and format that partition also to wbfs and be ok?

    If your wanting to put PC files on a WBFS partition it won't let you...It only lets you put iso files on the wbfs (I suppose it might let you put a movie ISO on it...maybe) but if its time your worried about formatting a WBFS partition takes like 2 seconds(as compared to a NTFS or FAT32).... It may just be a problem with your harddrive and if it is you can help others by posting here HERE

    I know. I used the partition I created to transfer some files from a locked up pc. I am done with that, but it appears the ntfs partition I created on my HDD is affecting my games now. I created a wbfs partition on the new pc to move the games to temporarily. I am just going to reformat the entire HDD again eliminating the partition altogether if that can be done, format it to wbfs and put my games back. I tried just making the partition wbfs but my usb loader kept booting to the empty partition and not my games. Is is possible to delete the partition, reformat the hdd and have my full 500GB back?

    You'll lost whatever games you have on the existing wbfs partition. You can extract the ISO's of each game (make sure you save them to a ntsb drive, as fat 32 will only store 4 gb of the 4.3 gb isos. Don't ask me how I know this.), format the whole thing, and then add the iso's back to your hdd. Unfortunately you can't modify the size of the existing drive, like merge it with another or increase it's size, it's reformat it or keep it at its existing size

    You can certainly have a split partiton hdd, though. I run my hdd as 150g WBFS, 850 Fat 32. I have all my boot info on the Fat 32, as well as gazillion movies, which I watch via the Wii using a media channel.

    So I may as well just format the 100GB partition to fat 32. I thought I read somewhere Once I created the partition there was no way to un-create it. Thought I was gonna get lucky somehow LOL.I was transfering the games to a wbfs partition I created on my pc. I may as well stop it then huh?
