    I have a strange problem. I have a Fantom 500Gb USB Drive (has a Hitachi hard drive inside). I made a 200GB partition for use with the USB loader.

    When I format to WBFS using one of the windows apps, the loader claims it's not formatted and asks to format it. If I format it in the loader it then works fine but windows will not find the WBFS partition.

    Windows does not assign a drive letter and it shows up as "Free Space" in disk management. PartitionMagic magic sees it as Unallocated space. I'm using Windows XP Pro SP3.

    If I format with the loader then it doesn't work with my computer. If I format with the windows app then it won't work with the loader. Any suggestions on how I could fix this?

    Windows isn't going to recognize the WBFS partition, you're going to need to assign it a drive letter
    assuming you're going to use the command line or a gui to add/remove games.
