    Hey. Is there a USB Loader for WiiU? I know I can install games directly to the NAND but i don't have space and I know I can load games from SD but don't have space on it neither.

    There's loadiine I think that's a usb or sd card loader but it's outdated and not recommended you should just install to nand or an external wii u usb drive

    Yeah I could use that, but I can't change the game location to USB or something else

    If you have a usb drive that you want to use for Wii U games then why not just format it for the wii u and install games to it?

    Please read about USB Loading, if you haven't already. Basically, if you know how to install to NAND, you just choose USB as the device instead.

    Also, you can move your NAND games to USB using Data Management.

    Explain "I can't change the game location to USB or something else" What are you talking about? If you're using WUP Installer GX 2, which is what you should be using you have the option of Nand or USB.

    All you need to do is get Wii U Usb Helper (google reddit Usb Helper workaround) and practically every Wii U game is right there in WUP installable format. Which means you can install to usb. Problem solved.

    But what I wanted to do is play from USB. Did you even read my post? Except if you can install from USB to USB.

    What? You can play from USB with WUP installable games. That's what I'm telling you.

    You have to install by putting the files on your sd card then loading up WUP Installer GX 2 and installing them to usb. You can't install USB to USB not possible.

    You're either making this harder than it needs to be or not explaining yourself well.

    My SD card is small and I can't play big games, which is what i want to do. But my USB is big enough for those games so I want to play these games on my USB. Do you understand now?

    Get a bigger sd card. Until then, nothing you can do about it.
