    I'm having a bit of trouble here. Recently, I took my 500 GB external HDD and partitioned 100 GB off. I then hooked it up to my Wii and using the USB Loader, formatted the 100 GB into WBFS. I've been installing games on it (about 20 so far), and everything has gone fine, they play and everything. However, whenever I plug my HDD into my PC, it detects my NTFS partition just fine (I get a popup everytime asking for a command function). But even after trying 3 WBFS managers, I can't get them to detect my WBFS partition. The drive letter is there, but it says that it's invalid or is not formatted to WBFS which leads me to believe it's only seeing the NTFS partition. I'm only wanting to get channels for my games, I could honestly care less about dumping games to my WBFS partition on my PC. So is there anyway to get it to detect the WBFS partition or somehow generate channels from an app on the Wii?

    i had the same problem,
    my 750gb hdd was splitted in 500gig wbfs and 250NTSC.
    I had to format my whole drive and then made one large 750gb wbfs partition.
    But you have to be sure that the WBFS partition is the primary one.
    Thats why i had the same problem!!!

    If it was primary, wouldn't that cause issues for me accessing my NTFS partition?

    Alright, I reformatted and I can get it to read in my WBFS management--but I could shoot myself by how much trouble I'm having to create a channel. Every attempt I have either I can't select the option or the program crashes! What is the best program for getting channels?--Or better yet, is there a directory of already made channels I can download from?
