    ok i have a usb powered external hard drive now here's the thing i can format it then add games to it and it'll play on the wii no problem

    but here's the problem

    when remove the hard drive from the computer and put it back the computer doesn't detect the hard drive anymore

    i can simply turn the hard drive back to ntsf/fat32 by putting the hard drive in the xbox360 and adding 360 storage then removing it

    is there anything i can do to fix this

    You should format it to fat32 anyway. wbfs is old hat.

    Yes
    Wii Backup Manager or WBFS Manager can read it, but using WBFS is not the best option, believe me... you'll be doing better with FAT32 or NTFS.

    What the??? Have you ever heard of spell check? And don't use the excuse English is not your native language, English can be the native language for spell check, and any half baked spell check can see there are numerous spelling errors in your post...Play Again!!
