Hi yall, The skinny: WFS ext hdd on Wii U#1 with all game backups and save files Wii U#1 hdmi port went bad, gamepad randomly stopped 2 buttons from working Exchanged at Game Stop (i know) Wii U#2 cannot read the WFS ext hdd How to get Wii U#2 to read the data or get at least the save files off? Searched around quite a bit on this one and learned a few things along the way (most importantly that a WFS formatted hdd is linked to only the console that did the formatting) but so far have not been able to find any real help for my specific issue. I do not mind reformatting the disk and starting over but have the same sappy story of the hours spent and now are likely lost. Just FYI in advance, I connect the hdd and power the console up but nothing. Not the pop up to format but I can clearly see the unit recognizes the hdd because if I attempt a reformat it will go all the way to the end to the red reformat button. Surely there is a way at this point to just snag those pesky save files (I really only care about the BOTW one), reformat the disk on current console, and put them back on hdd in the right location? Or else surely someone has wanted to use the same hdd from one console on another? What are the tricks here to do that? Any help is appreciated.
