    I have a thumb drive with brawl and a big hard drive with most of my other games. both work fine on my wii, but only the thumb drive works on the wii u. does the wii u power the usb less or something?

    The HDD has to be formatted in certain format for the Wii U afaik. Also unless your HDD is externally powered it needs a Y cable for more power.

    I heard the wii u did provide less power than the wii. get an external power supply or a Y cable for it. or it could be your cable sometimes cheap cables act funny.
