    I been having a hassle for awhile now, I used to dump Wii games directly to the HD.

    Now that I found great GUI WBFS for Windows I love them with a big issue.

    Maybe I'm just being dumb but I always partition the whole HD. I have an external HD that's 40GBs, maybe 1 or 2 years old. It does the job, been working.

    Anyway, whenever I use a GUI/USB Loader to format the HD to WBFS, my PC can no longer identify it without having to go through a bunch of hoops (reformat back).

    I looked at the big guides for newbies and I didn't find anything about this, this is going to make my life so much simpler.

    Do I split the HD in two with a partition? The reformat the split one to WBFS for just Wii games?

    tldr; Whenever I format my HD to WBFS the PC and unplug it then plug it back on, the PC can't read it anymore and neither can GUI WBFS programs. Help?

    EDIT: Obviously by read I mean Windows won't assign it a drive letter anymore, thus rendering it useless.

    EDIT 2: Derp, should had used the search feature. Guess a split format is what I should do, disregard this.
