    Hey, I have a WD 2.5" 256GB (I think) I took out of my old laptop. I have it in a Rosewill enclosure with a power source (I've also tried the Y cable it came with), but maybe after 15-20 minutes it stops spinning, and any time it auto-saves or if I try to go back to the Wii U menu, I'll get that error code for the USB source being unplugged. I'll check the HDD and it seems to have stopped spinning. Is this a problem with the Wii U or my HDD? I want to know before I buy another HDD. I can't even download games straight to it because it'll just give me the error...

    Is your Drive one of them Green Drives? if so they always power off from inactivity.
