    Hi, before hacking my wiiu, i'm wondering if I can use this 64GB thumb drive I have laying around instead of an actual HD to store games on. I'm not interested in vwii stuff at all

    I've been doing so successfully since the beginnings of both the Wii and Wii U hacking days. It's worked just fine for me! It's technically probably less reliable, but back it up every once in a while and use a good quality stick, and you should be fine.

    Yup, you can.

    It's formatted to a Wii U format, though, so you can't use it for anything else but Wii U.

    Been using a USB stick since 2012. Go freely.
