    To be honest, I think I should've known better. I got a usb 3.0 Segate expansion portable drive but it looks like it wont work on my WiiU with cbhc. It's just making a beeping/clicking noize. I'll try to get a y cable or a usb hub to see if it works and if that doesn't work I'll just use it on my pc instead. It works perfecly there.
    Edit: Another thing, can I use the same hard drive on my vWii and WiiU? I'm not using lodiine just installing the games with wup installer.
    Edit 2: if I install inject vwii games as virtual console on the wiiu menu, do the use the save data I already have on the vwii menu? (I should probably close this thread and open a new one).

    You will need Y-cable in order to use your portable hard drive. There is not enough power from Wii U to single USB 3.0 to run the hard drive by itself. Y-cable will resolve your issue.

    You probably just need an Y-cable.
    You can use the same HDD with Wii VC injects (which also includes Nintendont injects), but not with Wii USB loaders.

    Thanks, but will the vc injects use the save data I already have on the vwii?
