I posted my problem earlier but it seems that I didn't describe it so much so no one really gave solution to my problem. I'm using an HD with an enclosure. Whenever I transfer games from pc to my hard drive, I see that there is some lag during the process. The effect is that the game freezes at some point. I tried transferring the game again, but when I play the game again, it just picked another random point to lock up on. I don't think its a spindown issue because I don't feel it sleeping. Although sometimes the disc slot flashes continuously until I turn my hard drive off and on again. Any ideas of what might be happening?

There can be several reasons this is happening but...

Are you using WBFS it is a problem with some people when 50+ games are put on the drive?
Is it possible it is a bad dump?
Have you tried dumping your own game and seen if that worked if not question the hard drive?
Is the hard drive listed on compatibility forums and is it known to have problems? (this happens sometimes)


Well I'm not going over the rest until you answer the ones above since it will probably help eliminate the problem.

Thank you for replying! I am using WBFS but I'm sure I don't have 50+ games. Is it possible to change it to FAT32 without reformatting my hard drive?
I thought it was just a bad dump but it happens almost always now with every game I transfer. The games I transfer from a cd seem to work perfect. I really didn't have this problem until the flashing disc slot started.

When you created the game partition did you make it a 'primary' partition? That's important. If you do have to repartition anyways you're probably best using fat32 over wbfs.

I'm sure I made it primary. Can you give me a detailed step-by-step instruction to repartition a hard drive without wiping all my games? I'd really appreciate it.

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.

    i just saw a video yesterday that mentioned how it's a good thing 1-2-switch wasn't a pack in title because it would've made everyone lose faith in the switch immediately and they might have a point
