    time to change to FAT32. WBFS and new don't go in the same sentence. No one should use it anymore.

    I disagree...........WBSF still works great and has never let me down. Fat32 is another option but all my drives work fine with wbsf but not with fat32 so the compatibility is just not there yet.

    sounds like you lost the file system on the drive, the games are probally still there.......someone please tell him how to repair it, I know theres a way Ive seen other threads on it.

    WBFS is working perfect for me :S better than change .iso to .wbfs and than have to transfer it (takes a while if you have a lot of games).

    Ok you might recover if you hex edit blah blah blah. Recover from fat32 is much easier there is just NO REASON someone would use WBFS. (except to run triiforce iso forwarders lol)

    I find WBFS easier to work with than fat32 for wii isos, (i have my 500gb hard drive split into two partitions, 300 gb for wbfs, 200gb for fat32), for WBFS you just click the game you want and transfer it with intelligentwbfs, easy as heck, with fat32 you have to convert the iso and then transfer, thats one too many steps for me. If i found fat32 easier I would only have it all as fat32 but I find it more inconvenient for wii games than it is convenient.
