    Newbie here (woohoo?)

    Any way, if this is the wrong place to ask a question then by all means (obviously) move this to the forum. :wtf:

    Straight to the point, I have a WD-HDD 200GB My Book and I've recently downloaded the WBFS Manager 3.0

    Only those that know what its function is do please reply/answer my question.

    What I want to know is that if I format my My Book(MB) into a WBFS(if it's even possible), will I still be able to save other files rather than just ISO's (for wii) after formatting? I have music/documents/etc that I will save on my PC before doing such action but want to be sure if I can still format the MB to WBFS and after formatted, and after adding ISOs, can I still move the music/documents/etc back into the MB?

    I know I repeated a few things but that's a more elaborated question.

    Any pointers? [​IMG]

    on you MB you need to shrink one of your partitions on vista/7. to do this go to start right click in computer and disk management then right click on MB shrink partition, once that is done create a new fat32 partiton (don't format tho) and format fat32 partition using WBFS manager.

    You can keep only Wii ISO's in a WBFS formatted partition.
    So You'll have to create a partition formatted to either NTFS or Fat32.

    Look at the stickies in the Wii forums and all your questions will be answered.

    Never, ever ever, format a disk as WBFS.
