    Hi,

    Got my hard drive up and working on my wii, even copied my NSMB disc to the hard drive via my wii. The only problem i seem to be having is that windows isn't detecting my drive, neither are the manager programs either. Have i missed something or is it just not compatible with windows 7 64bit?

    I use WBFS manager 3.0 with no problems on Windows 7 64bit. I use an external drive dock with a 3.5" seagate 500gb drive.

    My HDD is showing up in the disk management section, but it doesn't have a drive letter associated with it. With the file system left as blank, i've never heard of WBFS till now. I'm guessing windows doesn't know what it is.

    WBFS Manager is working perfectly here on Windows 7 64bit too.

    Try setting WBFS Manager in windows xp sp3 compatibility mode with "run this program as admin". It wouldn't let me format my sd card to wbfs otherwise, maybe this could also work for you. If you don't know how, right click on the program, properties, compatibility, voilĂ  all is there.

    You can associate a drive Letter to the Drive with the DiskManager
    Wii Backup Manager works fine with the Windows 7 x64 Version

    Don't worry, its sorted now. [​IMG]
    I followed a wrong guide more or less, i originally formatted it into unformatted using Gparted then let Usbloader do its thing. To get windows to pick it up again i changed it to ntfs using Gparted, then formatted it using WBFS Manager to put my games on.

    Now i need your help with recommendations on themes and could someone please explain to me what a forwarder is? Also preferably i would like to have a nice channel, instead of going through HBC all the time. Much appreciated. [​IMG]
