    While you may be able to install eShop games to rednand you still need a ticket with the title key inside...

    Woah. games over 11GB doesn't even work on my hard drive when I use a USB-Y Cable. o.O
    I guess I need a newer hard drive, am I right?
    If so, should I buy USB 3.0 Hard Drive?

    1. someone buy the game (good Samaritan)
    2. he extract its ticket with wupserver
    3. share the title key located in it (illegal, not done here)
    4. user forge a fake ticket with that title key (using cearp 3DS website should work, ticket share the same format)
    5. get the app from eshop
    6. put game and forged ticket in /install/ folder
    7. use WUP installer on redNAND I suppose?

    That makes no sense. The Y cable has nothing to do with the game size. Heck I even found a .5 amp laptop 750gb HDD that powers itself from a single USB port on the Wii. The ports are USB 2 so a USB 3 wont help at all but all hard drives now are USB 3 so it might be all you can get. There are some games that are just shy of 20GB. Just get yourself a nice portable USB3 at least 500GB hdd with Y cable and you will be fine.

    At least I found out that the problem is with my hard drive. I just installed the same game (project zero) also on nand and it worked very well, but on hard drive it just disconnects from the hard drive. My hard drive is also veeeeeeeery old so I will just buy a new one if I have the money.
    + I have this problem only with games higher than 10GB
    Everything under 10 GB works fine on my hard drive

    Is it every game over 10GB that fails?

    Sometimes certain parts of a hard drive can fail before the entire thing goes...

    Try plugging the drive into the computer and download/run SeaTools with a long generic scan on it...

    That will tell you for sure if the drive is dying...

    It also may just not be fast enough to load large games quickly enough for the system to be happy...

    Yes. Every.
    Games over 10GB I tried:

    Project Zero
    Tokyo Mirage Sessions
    Bayonetta 2

    All 3 games are over 10 GB and crashed for me with the message that the Hard Drive disconnected and I should try to use a USB-Y Cable or PSU
    I also tried another hard drive which is also pretty old and a bit broken, but didn't worked either.

    it could be sleep mode for external hdds, wii u has a hidden option to disable sleep mode

    Go to settings.
    Go to data management.
    Press and hold down on the D-Pad for half a second.
    While still holding down on the D-Pad, press and hold the + and - buttons and a prompt should show up to disable sleep mode

    if this is already off its probably your hdd

    If your intending to install every single game of your region, if your budget allows it, may I suggest getting a 2TB ext portable drive and also getting a Y cable, doesn't matter if it's a USB 3.0 drive since all USB 3.0 drives are backwards compatible to USB 2.0. I've installed all the PAL games I can get my hands on at the moment and Im about to hit the 1TB mark and according to my own list there is about 30 odd games left to install when tickets are available, most of these are not eshop available games so have to wait for WUD dumps.

    I got the 2TB version of this Toshiba ext drive as an example, http://us.toshiba.com/storage/external/portable/canvio-basics, need a Y cable to give it extra power, works fine on my WiiU.

    I originally used a 500GB ext USB 3.0 drive, that filled up pretty quick, so didn't want to waste time and re install those games again, I bought the new drive and used the MOVE feature of the Wii U to transfer the games to the new drive, to move 500GB it took about 10 hours!

    2TB is more than you need and possibly you only need a 1TB drive, I currently have 118 games so far installed on my ext drive and it's at about 850GB, with the remaining games left to install, I could get away with the 1TB drive but got the 2TB just to be safe. I'm the type that, when a hack is available, I must have every single game, most likely will never play/finish all of them, but good to have. Plus my 4 year old boy, I can see the ease of just turning on the WiiU and choosing his games, exit and start another one without asking me for help.

    Hi New guy here!

    I ran into some trouble installing SMM to my USB stick. My Wii U wanted to run a update on SMM but got stuck with Error Code: 105-4207 since i use the tubehax DNS.
    I already own a copy SMM on disc and have a have update-files and saves for it on the system memory and I guess that messed things up.

    Problem solved by having WUP Installer install SMM to the system memory. Game starts fine now and I moved all of it to USB.

    This is a dream come true! Now i don't have to worry about my kids scratching up my 40-50€ wiiu discs.

    Installing all games from your region is really overkill :-)
    In the small wiiu library they still managed to release shovelware ("how to train your dragon", "Family party" and "Angry birds" springs in mind) and bad ports ("Watchdogs"). The last one you better play on your pc as you should Assassins Creed (although black flag is really a nice one on wiiu)

    That said: installing only the 'wiiu exclusives' and some Lego games (which imho are always fun to play) : you could do with a 256Gb stick +22Gb on wiiu itself (I did)
    Apart from that: the more games you have available, the less you play.
    I had dozens of games on my DS and 3DS and ended up starting them, looking if they started at all and then quiting them.
    After deleting most of them leaving two of three I felt more driven to finish them... i guess that the same applies for the wiiu

    Just my two cents....

    Well, I just want to install the games I want to play. I don't want to own every single game. :D
    But thank you very much!

    Another question regarding the WiiU HDD power. When the WiiU is off, does it completely cut power to the external HDD? Do the USB's completely power down? I know on the Xbone, even when you do a complete FULL off, the stupid USBs keep the 2.5" hdd's spinning.. wondering if the wiiU full power down is a FULL power down

    Thanks!

    I think there's an option to keep or shutdown the HDD when in standby mode, but in full shutdown the hdd is always shut off too.
    Look in the settings, there should be an option for power management, or hdd management?
    Maybe I'm mistaking it with another console.
