Use a software such as h2testw, and see if it is fake or not

it's like asking if a new fancy frame will make your Picasso printed on a toilet paper into a real one

demand a refund and leave negative feedback so hopefully other people don't buy off the same scammer

you can get the sandisk cruzer glide 128gb or 256gb flash drive i have use the 128gb on my wii u before and it work just fine no errors but i would recomend just getting portable hard drive the one im using right now is a Seagate Expansion 1TB Portable External Hard Drive you will NEED to get a y cable for this almost any hard drives need it so it can get enough power to turn on and be use on wii u

hard drive

Y cable wont help?
Y cables are for hard drives. They're required to give enough power to a hard drive. Flash drives don't need them. Your flash drive is fake and even though it was sold to you as a 256GB, it only has 12GB on it. As others have said, get a refund. Nothing will fix this, because nothing's wrong with it. It's fake.

Read this article and you will better understand how your flash drive is fake and why it appears legit at first. They report inflated capacities via the microcontroller to your OS. Testing them with utilities is useless unless you do a write test beyond its true capacity. Read tests uncover nothing because flash drives don't report read errors when accessing non existent memory. Even writing to them is deceptive if you don't verify the data afterwards since written data with nowhere to go will either overwrite existing data, or end up in the mysterious "bit bucket" or null device.
