    With the release of 1.4, I have been in vain trying to let it access my WD passport NTFS/FAT32 (Both primary) partitions. Have tried choosing between IOS249/250 without any success. Please advise. [​IMG]

    I have created the wad folder with some wads but it returns with an ret =-1 error.

    NTFS->FAT32->WBFS (In order)

    Try unpluging the power to your hd for a second while the loader is looking for a drive. Thats what I have to do to get mine working.

    And demondes99 the same as any other drive, if you can't find a partitioner that works try "Paragon Partition Manager Professional 9.0 + Recovery CD Image Pro 9"

    EDIT
    just reread your post, iirc for wad manager, you need fat in the first partition.

    WBFS partition must be primary, and the other ones logical.

    Also it's maybe the wrong order...FAT32-->NTFS-->WBFS should be better, I think....at least this fixed something like that for me...

    So you mean to say, it must be FAT32->NTFS->WBFS ?

    Unlike WBFS which is recognised from any partition, wad manager can only see the HDD if it resides as a FAT32 file system only in the 1st partition?
