    I am currently using a 1TB Western Digital MyBook Essential Edition external hard drive. Everytime I try and load a ROM from the hard rive using the emulators it says hard drive not found. This same hard drive works for everything else. I have three partitions on the hard drive:

    1) Backup Wii Games - WBFS format (THIS IS MY PRIMARY) - 200GB
    2) Media (movies, tv shows, music, etc) - NTFS Format
    3) ROMS - Fat32 format - 8.5GB

    The emulators I am using is FCE Ultra GX, Genesis Plus, Snes9x GX, Hugo-Wii, Visual Boy Advance GX


    I have tried loading the roms from the hard drive on each of these emulators and they dont work. I am sure I have them correctly named.

    I am wondering if this is because I have multiple partitions on the hard drive and the emulators are confused.

    So, im wondering if anyone has run into this same problem or is there a solution to this? Or did I do something wrong? Ant help would be greatly appreciated.

    You need:

    1) First partition as Primary
    2) Third partition as Logical Drive
    3) Second partition as Primary
