    I guess all is in the title ^
    I have a 240GB SSD and 2TB HDD.

    Does it matter if isos/wuds are loaded from an SSD instead HDD?
    Better performance?
    Better stability?
    Better speed?

    Just a bit to the right, or was left...
    Speeds are determined by the usb 2.1 port on the wiiu, so speeds should remain pretty much same. It would be less noisy
    And it's same, hdd or ssd

    You can't run ISOs nor WUDs

    Use the HDD, otherwise you are just wasting a SSD.

    You can power an SSD from a single USB port on the Wii U, depending what else you have connected to the console that could be a benefit. Load times are no faster though.

    I was always able to power an USB hdd from 1 port only, never had to use 2.
