    I am not quite understanding this WBFS stuff . All i did was use partition magic on my 1tb Maxtor external. Then i used WBFS to format half the partition. Transferred about 20 games. Everything was going great, games were loading no problem. Then today when i got home from work, the drive did not work, it's dead according to the tech. Did i do something wrong here? Or what didn't i do?

    Did you spill juice on it lol. Try formating it see if that works if not return it.

    Maxtor = junk, I had an 80GB drive that died after 6 months of very little use, imo, their drives are shit.

    Agreed, maxtor are a piece of junk. Had to send back one before.

    By dead what do you mean exactly. Have you tried hooking it up to your pc and formatting it, is it even detected?

    You have to watch out for 1tb externals these days, I've seen many low price ones going around now and they look pretty shonky to me.
