Hey there everyone. I recently bought a new 1 TB Western Digital Elements hard drive to use for my USB Loader on my Wii. I have tried formatting it to WBFS to play my .iso Wii games, but I just can't format it... I double partitioned my hard drive so I could use it for both school and my Wii, if that helps with anything.

If someone could please help me, I would GREATLY appreciate it. Thanks!

It is recommended not to use wbfs-Partitions any more. Format the partition you want to use for backup (I think it must be the first one) as FAT32 and use wbfs_file (command-line tool) of WiiBackupManager to convert your .isos to .wbfs-Files. There are other tools that can do that, but that are the two I know (WiiBackupManager seems to call it simulated wbfs drives). That files need then be put in a folder with the name wbfs on the backup partiton of your HDD.

Okay, so I understood that a little bit, but not completely... Could you explain it more? I'm not really tech savvy at this kind of stuff...

I actually just got it to FAT32, so no more worries there.
