    I have my vWii HD plugged in the back of my Wii U (as it doesn't seem to work in the front) and I have my Wii U HD plugged in the front which works fine. However when installing anything using WUP installer GX2 it only seems to recognise the HD if it is plugged in the back. Is there a way to make it recognise HDs in the front ports (or make vWii USB loader GX recognise Hds plugged in the front ports?). I have tried changing the loader ios to 58 and when I do that the drive is recognised in the front ports but the games do not load.

    Also what are the port numbers on the Wii U? Are the back ports 0 and 1 and the front ports 2 and 3? In what order?

    Thanks.

    I know the vWii requires the port in the back. No way around it for USB Loader GX or anything involving the vWii, except to install Wii/GC injects to your Wii U hard drive.

    However WUP Installer GX2 recognizes HDD's in the front. But you need to unplug your vWii hard drive just while you're installing games.

    Ah nice one thanks, that is a start certainly better than swapping the HD from front to back for installs.
