    Any AC powered HDD will work, so yeah this will work just fine.

    Super, thanks for the fast reply. Asked because wanted to be sure before I'll buy it as I can get it relatively cheap, so once again thanks for help.

    Any HDD will work. Powered drives are better since the Wii U has low usb power. Flash Drives work. USB Powered Iomega Zip 250 drives also work lol
    SCSI HDD would work if there was a decent usb converter......
    I use a 128 GB Flash drive

    Smash bros is the only game that uses it i think. you can load games off of a sd card but only if you place it in a usb converter. then it acts as a usb flash drive.
