    NO COFFEI!
    Maybe you're installing to the NAND and it's obviously too small.

    Hmmmm weird. Maybe you're doing a step wrong? If it's not that then I have no idea. Anyway if you have Rednand try installing with system configuration tool!

    A lot of people have had luck installing larger games by turning off their ex hdd's sleep function.

    For whatever reason the hdd thinks it's inactive during install and turns itself off.

    Are you using wupinstaller Y mod? That more or less is currently best choice.
    You also might have a bad download there, crashing the installer out. Has happened.

    go into settings, into data management, press and hold down on the d-pad for a second, continue holding down and press the - and + buttons until a prompt appears

    That has got to be the dumbest way to do something I've ever heard of. Why in the world don't they just have a dedicated button for that? :wacko:

    I had this same exact issue with Xenoblade Chronicles X which is a pain since it's a huge game. How I fixed it was turning off USB sleep mode. Deleting the game off the SD card and adding it back, then installing it again. It also fixed a message I would get when I entered data management, about unknown data.

    Double check your sources using tikdownloadhelper, disable hdd sleeping, disable automatically turn power off function. Installed 420GB of games without an issue. Including Xeno, Mass effect 3.

    Never got that problem, even instaled Xenoblade(19Gb) no problem.
    Are you using an Y cable for the external HDD?

    How did you even install ME3? It's not on that one ISO site, there's no ticket for it and it's not on the eShop/NUS.

    I don't have a rip of the game, that's why I was asking around, they have a PAL rip, but I guess they can't be arsed to make an NTSC one. Go figure.

    It was a launch title for Wii U.
