    WBFS Manager issues

    I have a seagate 250 gb hard drive and i have tried many times to get the wbfs loader to format to wbfs but it says it is successful and doesnt actually do anything. Also i cant format my hard drive to Fat32 only exfat and NTFS. Is there anyway to get it to Fat32 to get this to work or is there another way to get wbfs to work.

    Much appreciated

    There are device/controller compatibility threads within here: http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...s-usb-hdd.html. Go take a look to see if that tutorial et al may be of assistance to you.

    Ca

    I have 33 ganes on my WD passport hd.But they dont show up in wbfs manager.Do l need to load the software from wd first then backup the games to another partition?
    Checked that link-was very helpful and still had my games.
    Dont want to delete or format anything.
    But l do think there are doubles of the images,after you delete the game,causing stack dump errors.Cooking mama loaded in 1 sec.Deleted it .Reinstalled it-had the wrong size-3.42 gb as opposed to 0.52 gb.The game was choppy at loading.Worked fine thru disc channel w/modchip.Maybe burned it at too high a speed.Seems like when l re-rip a game at a slower soeed-4X-the problem is solved-eg-mario kart.I guess the best way to rip a game is to rent the retail-no speed issues.

    well i checked out that site and i got mine to work i had to get a guiformater for fat32 and then i did some other things but it works now and to answer rockits question from what i have done and learned you need to use WBFS manager to put the games on and use usb loader to run them on the wii.. idk if that is what you needed to know but that is what works for me.
