    (FIXED)
    hello
    today i bought a 64 gb usb
    i used the wii backup manager to transfer my isos to wfbs to my usb
    the usb only had the folders separated.. and not in a wfbs folder (i think that was the problem)
    when i opened up usb loader it asked me to select a "partition"
    so i selected the usb
    and usb loader didnt read my games
    and when i inserted the usb to my pc, my pc didnt want to open it and the explorer crashed
    and i inserted it on my tablet and tried to format it... but the format window never opens

    what do i do? i already tried everyway i know to format it but it dosnt work
    i even tried to format it on usb loader but it freezed

    try this
    1. Go to My Computer>Removable Disk Icon.
    2. Right click the Removable Disk Icon and open its Properties.
    3. Click on the Tools tab.
    4. Click “Rebuild” button.

    Try doing it through disk management.

    1) Right-click the Windows icon in the bottom-left corner(if on Windows 10) to bring up a context menu.
    2) In the menu, click on disk management.
    3) Say yes to any UAC prompt that appears. You must also be logged in as an account that has administrative permissions.
    4) Find your Flash Drive in the lower portion of the window.
    5) Select any partitions that may be on the flash drive and delete them. You will lose any data on your flash drive at this point.
    6) Right click on the unallocated space and click "New Simple Volume"
    7) A new window will pop up. Simply go through all the steps it gives you. Do not disconnect the drive while it is creating the partition.
    8) Your flash drive should be fixed and appear in explorer.

    If the following steps do not work like the other steps posted by the people above, then it may be possible that the Flash Drive controller went bad, or the flash memory on the Flash Drive may be bad. I have encountered this same exact issue on a 8GB Flash Drive I had in the past, and it turned out that the flash memory failed.

    Use a real HDD. Flash drives don't work very well with Wiis, if at all.

    I'm pretty sure the partition tables and/or the FAT's are damaged. You will need a program to rebuild them.

    No Windows utility (included with the OS) can do that effectively, they're pretty useless.

    If by any chance on one of your many tries, the USB drive gets assigned a drive letter on Windows Explorer, you might be able to recover it.

    sounds like a fake drive (sorry)

    can you run fakeflashtest so we can rule that one out? I've worked with plenty of fake flashdisk and that's what usually happens

    Ok. That doesn't make them viable, though.
