    I have a 300GB Verbatim HDD, USB 2.0 and formated in NTFS, I plugged in the back of the Wii U and when I turn it on it doesn't recognize it, also when I go to setting it just stays there "wating for device" or something like that...any ideas what to do?
    Ps: I tried with a 8GB SanDisk USB and it works just fine...

    is the HDD POWERED, by AC or a y-cable(using 2 USB ports)

    just a normal USB cord in ONE USB port will NOT work
