your pc is'nt suppossed to recognize it, its not windows compatible as WBFS.... only WBFS manager will "see" it.
Besides, why go with WBFS format? your drive will only limit to 500 games as WBFS....if you format to FAT32, your drive is unlimited.
Use Wii Backup Manager, and configurable USB loader to put the games on from pc to usb....

Oh, use FAT32 GUI Formatter. google it.

Ya the problem is that WBFS manager didnt recognize it either. I will format it to FAT32 tonight.. do i have to convert the games from ISO to WBFS and then transfer them onto the FAT32 hard drive? Thanks for your help.

no, Wii Backup Manager automatically transfers any ISO, WBFS, ciso to a wbfs FOLDER on the fat32 drive.
no need to do anything, just find your drive on the tab, drive 1, goto the file tab, find the ISO or whatever, select transfer to drive 1, and let it run.
