    Earth, bro-dude.
    Did you try all of your games? Usually, that's corruption of files. My BotW had that error, but everything else (on the drive) played fine. If it is every game, you might have to erase the data (within the Wii U Data Management tab) and install the affected game(s) or if it's just one demanding game, install it to the NAND instead of your HDD.

    Hello,

    Try to power your USB holder with a Y cable.

    Watch if you do not have a corrupt game

    but the hdd has his own power supply
    and for the first few days it worked perfectly
    so thats whats weird it should be giving the error right away right not after hours of gameplay on multyple games
    and the error also occurs when i go to settings and try to enter the hdd from there

    Turn off everything, then unplug your USB device, then reconnect your USB media, do the same for your SD.

    Then turn on your Wii U

    The Wii U formats the USB media in its original format for this to work.

    So if your support is in fat 32 or other format, it might not work properly.

    If you see what I mean
