    Quick Disclaimer about this post, I already posted this in the official Wiiflow thread earlier but realized I may get a quicker response if I just posted a thread here. Apologies if that is not allowed and also feel free to delete the response I made in the official Wiiflow thread if that is the case.

    So I've been using Wiiflow for a few weeks now, and I'm starting to notice that a few games that I have just freeze mid gameplay. For example, with Wii Sports Resort, after playing the 3 point contest mode over and over again for 30 minutes the game will freeze. I suspect that this may be due to the drive overheating, but I just wanted to check here. BTW, since this information is probably important, I am running Wiiflow 4.2.1 off the vWii (Which the Wii U is upgraded to the latest version) using a Seagate 1TB Backup Plus Slim (http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Portable-External-Storage-STDR1000100/dp/B00H4XH5FY) which is formatted to FAT32 and runs games in WBFS file format. Also cIOS are all d2cx beta 52 in base 56, slot 249; base 57, slot 250; and base 58, slot 251 (I use beta 52 for all of them since Beta 53 just brings me back to the Wiiflow menu.)

    P.S. If it is a case of the drive overheating, then does anyone know if this (http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Exter...1464176471&sr=1-2&keywords=Hard+Drive+Cooling) is any good?

    Edit: So I tried the same game using a 16GB flash drive and it has worked fine. Do I just need a Y cable?
