    Bought a new 1.5TB WD External HD.

    Formatted into two NTFS partitions initially. In WBFS Manager, formatted the active primary partition into WBFS. For some reason, still said NTFS in My Computer. Was in the process of copying games off another WBFS drive, and half-way through copying 40 games or so, an error came up (can't remember) basically saying something about the drive no longer being WBFS partitioned or something.

    Soon after, drive is no longer recognised. Neither partition is showing in My Computer, drive does not show up in Disk Management and sometimes shows up in Device Manager. Tested different cables, and power source seems to be fine. Drive does light up, just doesn't seem to be recognised.
