    I am having some trouble formating my HDD to WBFS, I formatted it to FAT32, as the guide i was following suggested, but when I run wbfs_win, the program to format the hdd to wbfs it keeps saying "could not open drive: no error" I think it might be because I am running Windows 7.. maybe? I'm not really sure, can anyone give me a link to a newer wbfs_win maybe? or do I need to use a different version of windows? or what?

    Did you try to right click the program and run as admin

    Yea I've had to run all the managers as admin. They wouldn't work otherwise.

    Yeah, windows 7 wouldn't format my drive either. I ended up formatting my drive with a loader.

    All these utils require Admin priviledge on Win7.

    PS: Wii Backup Manager is the go.

    Better yet, dont bother with WBFS at all, and just go FAT32.

    I feel stupid for asking this now, I figured it out, sorry to have wasted anyones time by making them read this stoopid question



    And what do you mean by dont bother with wbfs at all, I thought you have to go wbfs,

    is there a way I can load from usb without having to deal with the wbfs file system

    well, now I've got it formatted to wbfs but I am having trouble moving the iso onto the hd,


    (edit)
    well now I'm downloading the wii backup manager, I don't know why I didn't do that to begin with, I'm sure it it will make my life much easier

    You haven't needed wbfs for a long time. However you were limited to the choice of loader as not all of them supported it. Any loader that still doesn't support FAT32 isn't worth bothering with.

    I don't know why it keeps posting the same thing over and over again, i didn't mean to,
    its probably because I kept this tab up and just hit refresh to see what people said,

    so I got it all working correctly, the only thing is when it loads an iso it loads it in black and white and it's very fuzzy looking,
    it might be a problem with the iso because i only have 1 right now to test it with, but I don't think it is
