    Hook up the drive to your PC, and use WBFS Manager to format it to WBFS, (do a quickformat to NTFS first) after that you can use wbfs manager to add iso's or a loader to rip discs. There are a lot of compatibility issues when you let the usb loader format the drive

    Ok, here are the pointer.

    Make sure all partitions on the drive are primary.
    if there is only 1 partition on the drive, use windows disc management to remove the partition and create a new primary partition. After that QUICKformat the partition with disc management to NTFS.
    Now load up WBFS manager and select the driveletter for you just newly created ntfs patition.
    Click FORMAT and it should only take a second to convert it. Now load the drive and you should be able to add iso's. If that does not work try another drive

    sd cards are not really good for wbfs manager
    try a quickformat with panasonic sd card formatter and try again

    i would advise you to get a external HDD
