OK, so I decided to finally hack my Wii U, and when I plugged in my good old HP SimpleSave 500GB USB external USB drive, the Wii U is unable to detect it, while my PC is still able to use it. I read that unlike the Wii, the Wii U doesn't provide enough power to the external hard drives, and usually a Y cable solves the problem. Should I use it on my drive, or is it actually a problem with the drive itself? Sorry for sounding noobish. If there's a better place for this type of question, feel free to show me.
