    Well only 1 woe really =)

    Since upgrading to Windows 7 if i plug my WBFS formatted HD in it doesnt recognise it as a partition and always asks me to format it.

    How can i stop it from doing this as its slighlty annoying =)

    Thanks

    Mine does to.

    Just ignore it, and start the WBFS manager. Works like a charm!

    it is still recognized by your WBFS manager though right?

    Just ignore it - one extra click won't hurt you.

    Windows doesn't recognize partitions that it isn't familiar with, so it'll always ask you to format them - possibly the same with Linux partitions too? (I'm not sure on that one.)

    Xp,Vista and 7 all do this for me.

    Someone did make a device driver for wbfs awhile back do a search for it if your interested.

    My drive used to do this on XP, after a while I made another NTFS Partition on the drive just so I could store some other stuff on there and it hasn't popped up since... dunno if you would want an extra partition on there though
