    When you bought the HDD, did it already have the games on it?

    Looks like the drive was formatted as WBFS this format is not recognized by any OS. So you need WBFS Manager.

    Open the program and choose the drive letter, you should see a list of games.

    Well, if you purchased the HDD with the games on it, that constitutes piracy, and thusly you will not get any further assistance on this topic. Please reread the rules.

    Alot of definitions here, but I don't see the word piracy at all

    hack - definition of hack by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    hack
    Computers . to devise or modify (a computer program), usually skillfully.
