    Hey look, a non-Homebrew post!

    When you go to Data Management in the Wii U Settings, you'll see you can use 2 USBs on it. However, you'll get an error when you actually try using 2 USBs at once on the console. Why does this happen and how do you fix this?

    Are you talking about 2 ext HDDs, TC? If so, you can only do that when transferring data from one to the other, as a means of shifting to a larger capacity HDD. You cannot use more than 1 HDD for normal use.

    How is that going to let me use 2 USB ports at once? It just puts data on an SD card onto the USB.

    You can't. If the IOSU exploit ever comes out, maybe there will be a way to do this, but without it, it is impossible.

    Ok. If this was Yahoo! Answers, I'd put this as the best answer :P
