    Every time wiiu lost connection with hard disk the hard disk will have to be reformatted to be used. That means loss of save, damage to hard disk, and have to re-download. It seems like system problem and is there a way resolve this

    Purchase a Y cable. Perhaps there is not enough power to power up the HDD.

    Nothing to do with power supply (I bought a disk case), it is just wiiu cannot read the disk after re-connection

    Are you trying to use it for WiiU storage or for USB loading (or something of that sort) in the vWii?

    If the latter, try not plugging the usb cord into the WiiU until you've already entered Wii mode and see if that helps.

    I was trying to use usb storage for wiiu games but seems like it's not that stable.
