    Error code: 150-3230
    I have stored all my games and saves on a 32gb pendrive, yesterday the last thing I did was playing Batman Origins, now I power on the console and there's no games, no saves no game updates, nothing. I had around 100 hours of gameplay saves, really disheartening. The console still detects the pendrive as a Wii U formated device, but can't open it, when I go to system settings a screen displaying the error code appears error code 150-3230.

    There's is not info in Nintendo supportt page about this error.

    I read that the damn Batman delete saves, but it went overboard and delete (or corrupted) the whole device.
    I'm from Chile so no way I can contact Nintendo, much less, send my system to them.

    Not sure if I would perform a disk check on PC trying to find bad sectors or something, probably at lost because we don't know Wii U storage file structure ;(

    Damn, that sucks you've got all your data corrupted but Nintendo did say for people to not use USB sticks.

    I've got the 32GB Wii U and still have 20GB-ish free (mostly because I don't download anything nor am I allowed to install the game data on the storage of Wii U unfortunately) otherwise it'd be full and I'd use one of my 80GB/160GBs HDDs.

    They recommend it for different reasons. Unless the WiiU does a SHITTON of writes to the USB media for some reason it shouldn't matter that much.

    My guess is the drive file system is damaged. file table whipped perhaps. This is why i backup my saves on small usb flash drives. Nintendo should do a cloud storage for saves.
