    You could always remove the drive letter assigned to it (from within windows disk management) every time you are done with the wbfs manager software. You will just have to redo it each time you want to add to the drive.

    You could remove the drive letter for the partition where your Wii games are installed. This way you wont see it in "My computer."

    go to Start
    right click on "my computer"
    Click Manage
    on the left side click "Disk Management"
    find the drive that has the partition with your wii games on it
    right click on that partition
    click "Change Drive letter and Paths"
    Click on the drive letter and click Remove
    click ok and close Computer management.

    The partition should now not be visible in "My Computer" if you need to access the drive to add new games do the same method above and add the drive letter back.

    I dont know any way to remove the format message besides hiding the drive altogether.
