    I'm sure in the last 5-10 minutes we've been discussing this you contacted the original OP and he responded that he was using a normal sd card lol.

    Can't believe that I needed to send proof, but here it is, translate if you want.

    [13:25, 23/08/2019] Pepeu: ei, quando você efetuou o desbloqueio no Wii U, você estava usando um micro SD ou um SD normal?
    [13:25, 23/08/2019] Pepeu: Estão falando no tópico que o problema era esse, e que eu tava perdendo tempo com um micro SD num adaptador USB
    [13:26, 23/08/2019] George Wii U: Eu usei um cartão SD normal ue kk
    [13:26, 23/08/2019] George Wii U: funcionava sem problemas
    [13:26, 23/08/2019] Pepeu: Certo
    [13:26, 23/08/2019] Pepeu: Obrigado, mano"

    Before you start saying about hour, I'm from Brazil, the fuse is different, and I just logged in my pc to take a screencap to post it here.

    I know you were trying to help, but you can't start being ignorant just because your methods didn't worked

    Well, you could open the Wii U and use a NAND Programmer/Reader, but there's a chance you could mess up more than what you fix if you mess up. Man, if only there was a SaveMii dongle for the Wii U!

    Idk if CBHC operation is the same of Haxchi on manual mode,but I had this issue few days ago on the manual Haxchi,I got a -3 error first and -5 error after,when I saw the SD files on my PC,they were corrupted and the SD card was with no files in there. I found another SD card here and replaced the files with fat32 format and voilá,the Wiiu starts to working sucessfully again. I read all the comments on the topic and one thing I'm sure,u can use a micro SD on the wiiu,doesn't matter what kind of SD u use if it's in fat32

    Somewhere close to my NES
    Probably the Wii u's SD slot is done.

    I'll get a Pro Controller for it, maybe it won't be fast, but I was thinking about getting one anyway.
    This problem seems to be harder than a 160-1400 error X')
    Maybe 160-1400 would be easier since I have 3 wii u disk drivers

    you may be able to find someone on here that lives fairly close to where you live that could let you use their pro controller, maybe

    Unfortunately not, I'm sure I'm the only one who has a Wii U in my city, I live in a really smalltown where everyone knows each other, so I'd know heheh
    But I'll buy one, If I can't fix this issue, I'm thinking about getting one with the 160-1400 error, it seems to be easier to fix, since I have 3 disk drivers to replace parts

    If I receive my payment earlier, yes, I'm planning to get another one, but with the error 160-1400. Do you think It'll be easier to fix?

    I found a guy who could possibly fix my console through hardmod, He's from another state but I can send the console to him, what do you think?
