Help please? HDD won't be recognised by WBFS Manager!

Oct 5, 2012 at 6:45 PM

Hello there.

I'm having a problem with my Seagate HDD. I know it's kinda unlikely I'll get help around here, but meh...

So. A couple of months ago I formatted my hard disk with WBFS Manager. All was working well, it was recognised by the computer, WBFS Manager and the Wii. Now, I recently formatted my computer, meaning reinstalled Windows XP and all. The hard disk is still working fine on the Wii, but it's not recognised anymore by the computer. It's not on My Computer, Disk Management or  WBFS Manager. It makes no sound when plugged in the USB port, but that little green light on it turns on.

It might be an issue with the hard disk or the computer itself, but I really think it's because of the WBFS format. Any ideas on what I should do? I don't mind losing my games from the HDD.

Sorry for the confusing/bad English >.<

I'm seeing the same issue. Changed my PC and installed WBFS Manager 3.0.

When I connect the Wii HDD to the PC, there's no click and the WBFS Manager doesn't recognize it. The same HDD connected to the Wii works fine though.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
