    I'm sorry to post here, i don't want o waste anyones time, but I've tried for a while to sort this and can't find out what is wrong.

    I was installing a game to Nand (used USB helper instead of wup installer) it failed installing to Nand, I assume due to running out of memory. I have been into the settings and it came up with a message that unusable data (or something like that) had been detected and offered to delete. I did this and it freed up memory.

    I have been getting an error (after game/s are installed) that no usb device is present (It is and it has been wine until the installing to internal problem)

    I am using Mocha, browser exploit back into hbloader and wup installer. Install to USB. It installs, but doesn't confirm, instead it brings up the failed error code and no usb.

    I am able to format the hard drive in Wii U menu, it all seems fine until after install?

    Even a game I have previously successfully installed no longer installs (I have not added anything to the sd card)

    I have tried to hard drives, any advice is very much appreciated.

    Hey Columbo...maybe you are not that good at solving cases or talk to people :P I thought utikdownloadhelper was taking games directly from Nintendo servers...nobody has to buy the game and upload it if I am not mistaken. I thought I had to update something or change something...

    Are you for real. Someone has to buy the game and upload the ticket to the title key site for it to appear on utikdownloader.

    Is a 32 GB pendrive good enough to enjoy games on the WiiU?

    yes, no game is that large, so you can use that. however, u won't be able to play but a few games, so I'd recommend a 500GBs+ hdd. I have a 2TB drive connected to mine, and I have about 1.2TBs full with 265 games installed or so.

    Also having this issue. Any help would be appreciated.
    I even tried using a USB flash drive and it would let me install to that just can no longer install to my HDD.
    I went to install multiple games at once after having successfully installed 2 single games to the external hard drive.
    I can now only install to the NAND or to a different Flash drive i have formatted to WII u

    Hey guys, also been having this problem lately, my WUP Installer GX2 suddenly stopped working, stuck on 0% every time I try to install anything. Everything was working fine today, and suddenly been having these issues with absolutely no error message, it just stays on 0% with no further behavior. Anyone here had the same issue and solved it somehow?

    i have a 1tb hard drive full of games and am looking at selling my wii u so I can purchase a switch, I want to factory reset or format my wii u so my Nintendo account and all personal info is off the console. when I plug the hard drive back into the wii u after I have wiped the console will it recognise the games already on the hdd or will I have to install them all again?

    Has anyone found a decent reliable Amazon or eBay item to use with a laptop hard drive? I've purchased a few portable hard drive enclosures with Y-cables before, and some have not worked with the Wii modding I've done. Does anyone have a specific one they like to use?

    Out of curiosity. If getting a game from the NUS servers do i need to get the latest update as well? Or will the game already be up to date?

    you mean the game update ?
    game updates are separated from the game's data.

    visualize it like that :
    the game you download is the same than the game on a disc.
    if you buy the disc, and you download the updates, they will not be written to the disc, but into an additional folder on your console where updates are stored.
    the update folder is common for both the disc version and the downloaded version.

    with games you download from eShop it's the same.
    the game is in a folder, the update in another, so you need to get both separately.

    If a game has more than one update, you only need the latest (it contains all previous ones).

    What Cyan said was correct. However if your console is connected to the internet you can let the game update itself when you try to run it instead
