    Plug it into The WiiU and switch it on you will get a message onscreen saying to format the usb go ahead and do this. Problem solved


    No it can only be used on wiiu

    you need to use an app in order pc to read it,if you are using pc itself you need to re format all the time back and forth.

    Because it is a Wii app not a WiiU app there is a big difference
