    Any (safe) way to keep a WBFS drive that way but format part to be FAT, or what ever is needed for homebrew. On the 'flip' side, is there any way to get a FAT drive to be partially WBFS? -- Both have data on it.

    You can add a WBFS part to a FAT drive, but not the other way around.

    Use something like Partition Magic to resize the FAT partition then create the WBFS partition in the unallocated space.

    If you don't have Partition Magic, i'm sure someone can provide a name of another tool that can do this. Worst case: Google "Partition Magic Torrent"...

    I've tried FAT (32) for homebrew, SNES emulator won't load using USB, nor will the HomeBrew Browser detect the drive either. The partition of the drive that's WBFS won't show games despite having brawl/triology on it, but it acts like there are games (just not brawl/MPT) on it but gives an error when "trying" to "load" one.
