    Heres what happens:
    Bought a 250gb Seagate Expansion Hard Drive
    Plugged to PC
    Installed Drivers
    Loaded Wii Back Up Manager
    Started copying 2 games
    Copying ended
    Opened drive to see if the games were there
    Deleted some crapware that come with harddrive along with the icon and autorun file(required for icon)
    Unplugged it
    Plugged it in again
    Shows up
    Cant format
    Un install device from windows
    Reboot
    Install driver again
    "Your Device Is Ready for Use"
    Still doesnt show up in My Computer
    If I go to Computer>Manage>Devices I can see it
    Tried on my laptop
    Same problem

    I know its not the hard drive itself because It was working at first

    Try using it in another PC or try formating via Disk Manager

    Format is using the Disk Manager like ArKRaveN said but if Windows doesn't detect it then I would try GParted.
