Homebrewed my Wii U / vWii and bought two "WD 2TB Gaming Drives", one to store Wii U games and another to store vWill stuff (GameCube/Wii). They both worked without y-cables (there were issues) so I have since gotten y-cables (there are still issues, heh).
- For Wii U, WUP Installer GX2 usually can't install directly to USB without errors, I have to go NAND and then move it over after - some games won't move from NAND to USB.
- For vWii I get everything working, then after a reboot USB Loader GX fails to recognize the HDD. I can restart without the HDD attached, reset to default settings, then restart & reattach HDD and it will work again... just that once until reboot again. I've used an older 0.5TB Seagate External with External power and it doesn't seem to have that issue.
