    Hello!

    I've tried to look this up, but could not find the answer. Is there any way to get USB 3.0 to work with VWII-mode? When i boot up my console in WiiU mode, light in my stick turns on. After i go to VWII mode it shuts down. I guess it stills uses the old USB versions, too bad. Any tips?

    The Wii U doesn't have usb 3.0 ports. They are usb 2.0, so you must have a different problem going on.

    Also I know that alot of people have to use a y cable to get enough power to usb hard drives so maybe thats the problem? For some reason the Wii U doesn't put out as much power on the usb ports.

    Hmm... I dont think it's a Cios problem either. It shuts down in every USB port, not only in most upper one.

    I didn't say a cios problem?:unsure: I said a power problem. Did you read the vWii guide? Plus shutting down doesn't really matter at the start. Does it work when you need it/using it?

    Hmm, i have these old IDE hard-drives. If i buy an adapter that converts IDE to USB 2.0. Do you guys think it will work in nintendo? Do you think i still need the Y-USB cable or external power-source?

    Buy a fucking Y cable. They don't cost much.

    i second that, it's cheaper to get the Y cable than the adapter for the most part ....you can usually find the y cable for about $4-$7-$14 depending where you look

    Could not get it to work with any cable. So i bought 160gb hard-drive with USB 2.0. Turns out it was actually 300gb and it's working great. So everything went better than expected! It seems, USB 3.0 memory sticks wont work at all!
