    im fairly new to this modding buisness but i think i understand it.now the first time i plugged my brand new hdd into my wii,usb loader gx it asked for a format so i did (partion 1) does this mean it was formatting to wbfs?.but when i go onto my computer it keeps asking me to format and sais i have used no space but the wii says i have used atleast 25 gb [​IMG] .so does this mean i can put games straight from my pc into the hdd with wbfs manager or am i going to have to format something if so please give me a brief explanation and am i going to lose my already saved games?THX!

    The PC does not understand WBFS format partitions.
    Only when you run the WBFS Manager program on the PC will you be able to see the partition.
    Ignore any messages from Windows about needing to format the drive.
