xchase,
I'm back on board.

Now what is the purpose of your D partition?

I need that info so that I can best advise you as to the next step.

Thanks and sorry for the delay.

Ok no problem. Scratch what I said before.
E: is for like my videos/music backup, and I also want to store an image of my C: on there.
D: is for my backed up Wii games.
And the unallocated partition of 100G shouldn't be there. I want to combine it with E: again.

Very good.

Now if the D was an ntfs formatted partition, I'd charge ahead for you.

But, since I'm not a Gamer, then I'm going to ask a couple of the guys for advice.

I don't want to mess things up.

Sure do need to get a 500 GB external usb drive to increase options.

I've been hoping that some of the lurkers, and I know that there are some gamers amongst them, would jump in here with advice.

I assume you have used wbfs to create that partition and put the iso files there in a compressed format.

Win 7 will only "recognize" partitions with a type code from a small subset of the full range of type codes. When Win 7 finds a partition with a non-blessed type code, then the partition will be listed as "raw".

I no nothing of that "manager" program which was used to put the files in that partition. Will that program allow you to copy or move all of the files in there to another location?

Yeah I used that program, and it's formatted as FAT32.
I just fiddled a bit with the program and I can't find any way to move the files.

If it was formatted as Fat32, then the partition would be recognized.

Let's do this:
Go to an elevated command prompt=run cmd.exe as administrator
enter following commands:
DiskPart
List disk
select disk 1
detail disk
list partition
select partition 2
detail partition

---now notice what the "type" is

Exit
Exit

If i didn't goof then we now have the type code of the "raw"partition

It gave me the type of D: which is just 'Partition' as the type.
