    Until (if ever) Mocha CFW's FAT32 support works as fast as a natively formatted Wii U drive I'm still changing devices on my Wii U's back everytime.
    I've got a 64 GB USB stick for my Wii U games (installed with WUP Installer) and a USB HDD for Wii and GameCube games which I need to swap everytime since Nintendont doesn't like two HDDs connected at the same time.

    As I'm a lazy guy I'm thinking about buying something like this:
    https://www.amazon.de/Meter-Repeater-Verlängerungskabel-Extension-Signalverstärkung/dp/B00AKCS5GE/

    I would connect it to my Wii U's back and put it to where my couch is so I don't have to get up as I would have my stick and HDD by my couch as well.

    Has anyone ever used extension cables on the Wii U? Are there any problems?

    These work but pendrives shouldn't be plugged all the time.
    Especially if it's a Wii U, they will get quickly killed because, well, Wii U loves to do crapton of useless stuff in background, even if you're casually browsing eShop.

    Alright thx. Once I'm done with Super Mario 3D World I might put my Wii U games on the FAT32 drive.
