    well partition magic still gives me the error (110)
    I dont think i gave me the error when I just had one partition formatted to ntfs
    So I think it might be because it's formatted to wbfs
    do you know if that's the case?

    Everything seems to be fine tho...

    Actually yes I would agree that the 100 may be a result of the wbfs. Not 100% sure but based off of partition magic back when linux was still new, partition magic if you had any linux partitions would alert of overlapping sectors, or invalid cluster sizes. Yet the drive worked fine dual booting linux/windows. So yea that would make sense if you're using something wbfs and it can't be read by your program. If you really want to investigate hit up seagate's site look for their hard drive utility and have it test it. Also sometimes on a failing drive that has SMART capabilities it will alert event viewer. You can check event viewer in control panel/admin tools/event viewer.

    where in event viewer would something about the drive going bad be?
    And I guess I'll go on, and if something somehow goes horribly wrong in the future, then it's probably from that error

    It'll be in system in event viewer. In 14 years I've only seen a drive report it's gonna fail once through event viewer. That one will be hit-or-miss finding it there. I'd say as long as you're not booting the drive and everytime you do it starts in a disk check on it's own, you're not losing random bits of data, windows see's the fat32, wbfs man reads the wbfs ok and most importantly the Wii works properly with it. If all are green lights, all should be well. Chalk it up to partition magic just not being able to read into the wbfs. Flipside, if you do notice odd behavior, you have somewhere to start =D

    yup, it's probably just that it can't read wbfs
    all are green lights, so if something does happen
    I'll have to check in event viewer
    Thanks again
