    hey dave, does this work using any of the usb ports on the wiiU? or is it the same deal as teh wii where it has to be that 1st usb port on the back? and what happens if you have a wiiU dedicated HD connected at the same time as the wii games only HD?

    I tried v1, v5, v6, v7 and v8 final. They all freeze at the loader screen.
    However if I unplug it, and wait for the loader to look for the HDD and then plug it, I'm able to launch games.
    However returning to the loader ( CFG or GX ) will cause my Wii to freeze again.

    With the latest beta r49 at least the wii doesn't freeze, it just looks for the HDD, then I can unplug it and replug it and it works, but as you can predict, is very annoying to say the least.....

    When it will be ready. Period

    EDIT
    Contrary to Wii on WiiU it works using the topmost usb port on the rear.

    Don't know because I don't have a WiiU. Maybe fix94 or damysteryman can test it (and of course I won't feel responsible for eventual data lost on hdd :D ).

    EDIT
    Little update about 2 hdd test:
    Code:
    <FIX94> now with 2 devices connected the wiiu just locks on bootup
    <FIX94> it says only one drive can be used and I need to turnoff the wiiu
    <FIX94> and remove one
    <FIX94> if I click ok
    <FIX94> it just comes back to that screen
    <FIX94> so it seems like you cant boot the wiiu with 2 drives
    <davebaol> what a shit
    <FIX94> yea
    <FIX94> I'm on 2.0.0 though
    <FIX94> I know theres 2.1.0
    <davebaol> try to connect wii hdd in wiimode
    <FIX94> well then it will work for sure
    <FIX94> I cant connect my hdd in wii mode though
    <FIX94> since I need both usb ports for power
    <FIX94> and if I would do just one the wiiu turns off lol

    Well this is not exactly what I meant.
    If he had more than one message then I could have checked his skills in order to decide whether to give him a chance or not.

    nice.. i think one usb device at a time is enough!?

    -

    BTW if u need more help with testing, pm me, i can test:
    - More than 200 Games
    - 7 different USB HDD´s (USB 2.0 and USB 3.0)
    - 13 USB Sticks (4-64gb)

    I´m modding consoles since the psx and i think that a have much experience with modding.
    I´ve also modded more than 50 Wii´s with Softmod and Chip (including my own 3 Wii´s) and also modded the Xbox with the Reset Glitch Hack, the PS2 with Modchip and the PS3 with downgrade and 4.30 CFW... and so on. you can see that modding a console is a party of my hobby.. i would be very proud if i could help you. PM me if you want.

    P.S. i´m not supporting Warez i´ve a huge collection of games :-)

    Thanks for keeping us up to date!

    Why use two hard drives if you can use a big one with two partitions?

    Yeah might be a good idea. :evil:
    But actually I never asked for a cent. I don't even have a donate button.
    I do it for free in my spare time. It's just a challange with myself and nothing more.

    Because you can't partition the drive to use on WiiU mode.
    If you have a drive connected while in WiiU mode, it asks you to format it and delete all partitions.

    What users want is to have a HDD for WiiU in WiiU format, and a HDD in FAT32/other/etc. for virtual Wii mode.
    But having both at the same time doesn't work at all, unless the one used by virtual Wii is not compatible with WiiU.

    About partitioning, that's not was officialy stated by Nintendo, it's supposed to work. I'll have to try it myself. Regarding the fact of two hds not working at the same time, i understood that, that's why i suggested the other method.
