    I like to format the first few gb's of my hard drive to fat32 and put the homebrew apps and everything in the hard drive and not have to depend on a sd card at all for playing wii games or emulators

    I got a few different hard drives with 2 partitions (fat32 & wbfs) the first 16gb formated to fat32, and all of these hard drives work on the old wii console homebrew channel showing any apps i put in the apps folder

    So far i have only tested 1 hard drive and it did not show apps on new wii u v wii homebrew channel
    This hard drive is showing and playing the apps on the old wii console

    This hard drive is a pocket size usb powered usb 3.0

    ( i just remembered that i read somewhere about the wii u having low power for usb powered hard drives , im gonna try a hard drive with a wall power supply and post my results )

    Its working great with the wall plug hard drive, the wii u definity has low usb power
