I tried installing a Game on my flashdrive but it just freezes before it can get to 1%
Do you have enough space?
If so, is your disk scratched?
That's a bit personal, isn't it?
Sorry, grammar mistake!
My Dick, i mean disk is suprisingly shiny for how long i had it, and i'm sure 16 gigs is more than enough space
Try a diifferent lloader to install the game
I tried using configurable USB loader, but the same thing happens. I tried two other games but it still doesn't work. It's getting bothersome to have to unplug the Wiiu then go to wii mode again, it takes so long . the installing settings seem fine, i just can't find the problem.
Hmm... are your sure the hard dick works properly?
The WiiU doesn't provide a lot of power from USB ports.
Maybe you need a Y-cable to connect your flashdrive to WiiU, instead of plugging it directly to the console.
Users with an external hard drives have the same problem, it require either a USB Y-cable, or an external power source.
Hmm, a Y cable? i recall having one i'll try it out.
Damn, turns out we gave the last one away.. anyways i happened to find something i was looking for for a while when i was looking for the y cable, so thank ya! I may use something like imgburn or free iso creator to backup my games if thats possible. Anyways, what do you mean by the wiius ports aren't powerful? i'm konda new to the whole computer thing and it striked my curiosity.
it means you tested it and it didn't work?
try another flash drive or hard drive.
The Wii provides more power (in Watts, or milliampere) to USB ports than the WiiU.
A single WiiU's USB Port can't be used to self-power external hard drives.
If you are connecting a hard drive to the WiiU USB port, it requires an additional power source (both USB ports or external power).
So...I've been wondering this for awhile: Do USB HDD's have problems being used as Nintendo intended on the Wii U as well? It just strikes me as odd that, when Nintendo adds official USB HDD support, they redesign the USB ports in a way such that they can no longer provide sufficient power for such things.
Yes, intended use (WiiU-formated drives) also requires additional/external power source.
Wait what? xD
I suppose that Nintendo has no reason to make the ports any stronger, Whatever they use usbs for.
Is there anyway to take my wii games and put it on the computer? I would use my wii but its long gone.
Easiest way is to dump them with a Wii, or possibly Wii U (do not know if that works, I have no idea about Wii U specific possible limitations/compatibility issues). To dump them with a PC you need a drive that can read Wii discs, and there are only 1 or 2 DVD drives that are known to do this.
you can dump the games with USBLoaderGX, or any other USBLoader or dedicated homebrew on WiiU.
The game is saved either in wbfs format (compressed) or in 1:1 ISO format (uncompressed, unedited).
Then you can transfer these files by connecting your drive to your computer.
another question, is there a difference between scrubbing a wii iso with wii scrubber and converting an iso to wbfs?
