    WBFS is an old partition type.

    You should copy all your games then format your HDD to NTFS or FAT32.

    Howdy,
    Before you start reformatting, what game(s) isn't working? I'm assuming some games are working, but not others. Try checking the compatibility list here:

    https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/USB_Game_Compatibility_Table

    While WBFS is an old format, it does still work - FAT32 is recommended because it's easier to work with on your PC, and it's required for GameCube games and most homebrew.

    it may be that the game you are trying either isn't compatible, or needs some 'massaging' to work.

    You're probably running a really old USB Loader GX then

    here's the build a lot of people are using right now, the main developer/maintainer Cyan has been away due to a computer issue- so GreyWolf has taken over for a while.

    https://github.com/GreyWolfSC/streamline/releases/download/r1269/r1269.zip

    Moving on from that- you should probably post your syscheck and I'll help ya with setting up your cIOS's and getting your current USB drive working.

    It's likely the reason you couldn't get some games to work is because of an outdated cIOS- rather than your drive being in WBFS format.

    Ideally you should be running with some variant of D2X v10 with a base of IOS56 in slot 249, with an optional install of the same D2X v10 but with base 57 in slot 250.
