    Right click on WBFS Manager 3.0 and run as admin see if it works
    you can extract your games to computer then reinstall after you have finished

    The Wii formatted your hard drive as WBFS. As the above poster said, you need WBFS Manager to read the drive.

    make sure the drive is not in use or open and that it has been formatted to WBFS format. does this mean i gotta change the partition on my games on the hard drive when its plugged into the wii? all my 60 games won't be deleted off my hard drive after i formatted it on the wii to WBFS?

    Could it be some pc virus locking his hdd? A similar problem happened to me and was a virus accessing the hdd at the same time I was trying to access it with any hdd wii app.
