    Does the drive work with other loaders? Does it work booted from HBC? Did you follow some guide? What does compatibility list say about your drive?

    hi
    the first partition SHOULD be fat32 primary active, the second one Primary too (your wi game partition) not a logical one!! check it out through a disk manager.

    Drive works fine with Uloader, WiiFlow boots/starts up fine in HBC
    I tried Wiiflow from SD and USB but still got that WBFS_OPEN error!
    I checked the compatibilitylist and drive is tested Ok???

    yes , certainly WBFS formatted.
    Personally i have never encountered problems with my wd drives, i have 4 different versions of them, but none of them is a passport one,
    hope you resolve soon, just check out if you want this http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=184...p;#entry2333495 .
    good luck.
