    ok. so i just got a sandisk 8GB 2.0 flash drive. i formatted it with WBFS. and i put a game on it, tested it and works perfect. now the problem is when i put it back onto my PC it says it could not open and needs to format. thanks to the stupid U3 software thats built into the USB flash. so i know if i format it, it will delete the WBFS and the game. but will i no longer be able to reformat it again with WBFS? when i load my USB it asks if i want to use it for only storage or do i want to use it with U3. what do i choose?
    thanks in advance.

    Windows asks to reformat merely because Windows (and all other operating systems) do not recognize WBFS. You can still browse through the stored ISOs via WBFS Manager and the likes. Should the drive get formatted as FAT32 for some reason, it could always be reformatted as WBFS.

    I hope that helped. [​IMG]

    P.S.- You can actually "remove" the U3 software. It's somewhere in the Launchpad Settings.

    You can also search for a U3 removal tool.

    Just ignore the message and load WBFS Manager (I think if you load the manager first it supresses the "format" message anyway).

    ... And yeah, as an owner of one of those Sandisk doohickeys I can confirm the uninstaller is built into the U3 menu but if your U3 install is trashed there's reinstall utility on the U3 website (the standalone uninstaller failed on my U3, had to reinstall the U3 menu then use that to remove itself).
