    im suggesting something different

    is create a tool to mount remote folters on sdcard:/install of wii u

    example
    i have a folder with 1tb of installations on my computer and i want mount that folter remotly on my sdcard/install of wiiU

    like on linux command (example)
    mount 192.168.0.1 smbfs sd:/install

    inst copy to sdcard is a mount of a remote folder

    There are two problems with this concept.

    First is that the WiiU itself has to see the install file path natively. As you can see with the time that it is taking to get native support for FAT32 (a file system that the WiiU already understands on SD cards,) adding a device is not easy.

    Second is the speed of network access. We haven't gotten more than about 1.4MB/sec over the interface. At that speed, an installation could take a very long time. And since the install is all or nothing, any error would mean having to transfer the entire installation again. At least when you do the network transfer first, the most you're retransmitting is the file which had the error.
