    So I downloaded the new update for Botw and I wanted to install it, however while I was installing it there was some sort of weird error that states that i removed my USB even though I didnt =_=

    this has happened before however im not sure if I should restart or delete the data, if I have to delete the data how would you actually do that?

    What type of USB device are you using? The error you are getting can happen for a number of reasons.

    1. You could have an under powered hdd if you are using one is it connected with a y cable or does it have its own power supply?

    2. Does the hdd have sleep mode active or disabled

    3. Have you changed the wiiu settings to also disable sleep mode

    4. If it is a usb pen drive it could be about to die

    5. Same if you are using an older hdd

    And there are a few more reasons that could cause that error.

    The problem is most definitely sleep mode, but how would I delete the old update data?

    You just need to install the update over the corrupted software and you will be fine as to disable sleep mode do this


    • Turn on your Wii U
    • Go to Settings
    • Go to Data Management
    • Press and hold down on the D-Pad for about half a second
    • Keep holding down and now press the + and - buttons and keep them pressed down until you see a prompt referring to the HDD sleep mode
    • Select disable - you will be advised that this setting might consume more energy
