After homebrewing my Wii U (Using CBHC) I wanted to load some USB Backups to my Wii U using an external Hardrive. But when I plug it in, even though it says it is powered on. My Wii U doesn't detect it.

I use a 128 GB Hardrive with a Y-Cable connected to the front of the Wii U. The Hardrive is formatted to FAT32.

Any help is appreciated.

Wii U need to format the drive before using it. What you got a SSD?
1st. My Wii U doesn't give me the prompt to format the HDD

2nd. Not sure if by SSD you mean an SD Card, which if that's the case. The knly one I have is a 16 GB into my Wii U.

Ok so it is an external Hardrive.

About the size I don't know I found it laying around some old stuff in my house

Plug the drive into a computer and take a look, drive doesn't end in 128 GB, unless it is a solid state drive.
I actually got mistaken it is actually 232 GBs

It seem like your Y cable isn't enough for your wii u to detect the drive, take a picture of the drive, and it enclosure if it has any.

The enclosure convert SATA to USB, the Y cable connect to the enclosure, base on what you have right now, the wii U doesn't see the drive, even though the computer see it, seem like what ever the Adata come with wii u doesn't like it.

Its been a while, but Im pretty sure you meant to use the REAR usb ports on the WiiU, NOT the front usb ports for external storage drives.

    @BigOnYa, why do people hate seasons 20 and 23 of south park?
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I don't know. People hate and down vote everything nowdays. I see it especially on gamestores, like every game has a negative rating, even though they are good games.

    1st video- That's why I hate ordering stuff online, if I can just go pick it up myself nearby. Wal-Mart online did that to me years ago, sent wrong item, I went to Wal-Mart by me to return, but noo, I had to mail it back and wait.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    99% of the time ordering online I have had flawless experiences, only time something was messed up, I ordered a big TV from Amazon and it came smashed the box was literally like some one jumped up and down on it, didn't even open it, contacted Amazon sent them pictures, they made me open it and take more pictures, free label to return it and they sent another. So it was relatively painless. But still annoying.
