Help! Installed games onto Wii but PC asks to format?

Mar 25, 2010 at 9:27 PM

I installed 2 hard copies of my wii games onto the external hard drive that work perfectly.  Then I plug in the external hard drive into the computer and it keeps asking me to format it.  I'm using WBFS Manager 3.0 and running Windows7 64 bit.  Is there any way I can use the harddrive to install hard copies and install ISO copies without having to format it? It seems like I have to do one or the other only? Thanks in advance!

Just don't format the HD via Windows - ignore the message.

WBFS isn't supported by Windows and thus it asks you to format the drive so windows itself can make any use of the drive. Windows 7 itself doesn't know that you can access the filesystem with a tool like WBFS Manager.
