Hello Hadi Aulia!

Thanks for the compliments ☺ I really appreciatte that!

Regarding your questions:
I never thought to use sd card as hdd replacement,is it slower compared to hdd?
-> Willsito: It is not. And it is neither slower comparted to an HDD. Everything works like a charm.

Why not put gamecube iso on wii sd card? Didnt nintendont already support hidden storage using ustealth?
-> Willsito: This is done for a particular reason, I qoute (and do some edit) from my first post:
"Game Cube Games are put in the SD because of the Nintendont forwarder that is allocated in the Wii U interface. I have this to play GC games with the Wii U GamePad. As the Wii USB is hidden for the Wii U interface, if the games would be present in there (the Wii USB allocated in the back and down USB slot), the Forwarder wouldn't recognize the USB and couldn't load GC games."

Hello Mike087,

I have used both back ports (this info is as well in the OP):
· USB Up Slot:
o SD 400GB + SD Reader Trascend.
o Let the WiiU format the USB to its own format.
o Wii U Games (installed) > 300 GB.
o Some Virtual Console Games (NDS and others).

· USB Down Slot:
o SD 200GB + SD Reader Trascend (none high storage USB sticks worked with USB Loader GX).
o Format FAT 32.
o Copy the games with the Wii BackUp Manger program.
o Wi Games -> 141 GB.
o Hidden with Ustealth_R8, so we don’t get the constant question to format the USB when in WiiU mode startup. (Reason why I can't put GC games in here).

Hope it helps,

Best regards

PS: both USB front ports are empty for 2 reasons: esthetic and let them be clear for eventual Wii U Pro Controller charging.

Just a tip. I don't know if it is in the tutorial.
- When you want to install something in the "wii u games sd" you need to remove the "wii games sd", otherwise you gona get an error when installing. That happens when using "wup installer gx2", idk if it happen with other installers.

Hello Mike087,

Indeed, but let me correct what you said: if we want to install something into the Upper USB Slot (you can have connected there a HDD, USB SD Reader or whatever the device), we must unplug the lower USB Slot device.

Hope it helps and best regards!

Hi @Willsito_GG, really cool setup, have you had any issues with your back ports? I've always read that you'll have issues by using non external power HDDs but I've seen conflicting reasons to say the least

How much have you ran your flash drives and do you use your Wii U often? Thanks!

Hello Lucho505,

Regarding the SD Cards and SD USB Readers plugged in the Back Ports: so far, so good taking into account that I have played not too much in 2 years...Anyway, I think that those readings are not based, most of the cases, by real experiences....

If I might have any problem in the future, I will let you know ;)

Best regards

Willsito

Nice setup and ty for writing up this post, however I think the Wii/GC part could be achieved more easily... I've got one HDD for the WiiU installed games (~250GB), and one HDD with GC backups AND Wii backups (USB Loader GX doesn't show the GC games at first but it can be enabled)... It was not that easy to set this up but it's definitely cheaper (and you've got to choose between the two disks before playing either Wii/GC or WiiU games)
can you explain how you did this?
