    ok, let's get down to basics.

    Why have you partitioned them this way?

    If you used Vista Disk Management, did you format them as well as I know it asks you that?

    Did you partition choosing primary partition?

    Try Best FREE Partition Manager for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 - EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition freeware. - it's free

    And examine the hard disks and report back with some more info.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    Well I partitioned them this way becauseI know that the max is 500gb and it don't work well when partitioned that way, so I thought I might drop it down a bit and go that route.
    I did have to format them, there was some info on the hdd.
    I have J: as primary and active.
    I also just partitioned it again with the partition manager and it's still giving me fits

    There is no 500GB limit, only a 500 game limit.

    If you wished you can start over and remove the partitions completely, leaving a factory restored drive, then your first partition would be a 30GB partition for FAT32 stuff (USB loaders, HBC Apps & Games, ROMs & EMU, WiiWare etc, some media files as well) formatted to FAT32 ofc, then the rest of the drive do not format but give it a letter and then in WBFS select the new letter for the untouched part of the drive, load it and see if you can format it now.

    You can also try using http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtop...&#entry2489180 to format it to wbfs. It's the successor to WBFS, by the same creator, and he's still updating it (according to the website he is no longer updating WBFS) It will at least tell you if it's your partitions or a compatibility issue with Manager.
