    I tried to help you with this issue before in another thread.

    Lets get somthing cleared up. When you DO NOT have the USB drive connected to the PC how many drive letters do you have and what drive letters are used?

    Please answer the question above (make sure the USB HDD is not connected when you do the above). Also make sure you list all the drive letters that are used.

    I tried doing everything in that thread and Im still ending up with the same problem.At first I had thought my external hard drive wasn't compatible but the wii was recognizing it.Usb loader even let me format it.I even loaded game on it and the worked fine but for some reason WBFS manger wouldn't load or format my hard drive.

    Do you have 2 partitions on your USB Hard Drive?

    If so do you have 2 drive letters for it? 1 for the fat/ntfs partition and 1 for the WBFS partition?

    Your positive E: is PC partition and F: is WBFS? Your PC might have E: as WBFS and F: as PC partition. Just trying to cover all possible issues.

    Also make sure the Partition is listed as a primary partition and not a logical partition as the above linked thread says.

    can you create another partition, then used the WBFS tool to format the HDD, and test this if it recognized by the Wii? You can used acronis or Gpart to revert and re alocate the space if the problem still exist.
