    I have two partitions on my external hdd. The first is my WBFS partition, and the second is NTFS.

    Now my external case is e-sata/usb. The USB works fine on my Wii. However, my PC (Win7) doesn't detect it over USB. I tried to manually detect it through device manager, but no luck.
    If I plug the e-sata it will work after I go to device manager and tell it to detect new hardware.

    Is the PC not detecting the USB because the 1st partition is WBFS (i.e. an unsupported format)?
    If I change the partitions around will this help the problem?

    it should still see the drive. Sounds like a problem with your PC's usb drivers/ports.

    Thanks for the response. I'll look into it when I get my hdd case returned.
