    Hey there,

    I used to be involved in the community for quite a long time, well, I use my wii and ds on a regular basis, so im game still.

    heres the deal

    I cant access my WBFS part using wii file manage 3.0.1 , wii game manager , ncwbfstool

    every program doesnt seem to allow me to access the partition

    error examples :

    1) Error occured while loading drive. Make sure the drive is not open or in use. that its wbfs

    NCTOOLWBFS :

    WBFS drive is not valid

    *** interesting thing, it seems to know which drive letter there would be a WBFS partition.


    What I've done to solve?

    Ive assigned a drive letter, checked the computer management, made active partition.

    Tried this same setup on three computers

    Win 7 64 bit, Win 7 32 bit and XP 32 bit,

    all with the same results.

    checked to see if its a virus/antivirus/firewall problem locking drives, but obviously three computers, you wouldnt dupi that environment.


    Yes the drive does work, and always has on the wii

    Yep, I loaded this drive myself and its been though about 1 year since I've loaded anything on it via the computer

    The Drive is Raw

    the drive wont detect whetever it has a assigned letter or not

    the drive wont detect as active or not

    there are only two parts on the drive.

    I really wish new users would stop choosing wbfs
    For experienced users its ok, they can cope with it
    but a noob will never adhere to all the crap it puts you through
    after a time they simply ignore things like
    "Don't delete a game unless you are absolutely sure that the tool you use was fixed, because most delete parts of other games too"
    "Windows will ask you to format it, EVERY SINGLE TIME, make sure to remove idiots that instinctively click ok form the room before connecting"
    ...


    then he should update his loader & cios

    Looks like I know what I'll be doing now. In all actuality, I've never had a problem with WBFS which is odd considering the horror stories I've heard.
