What's the error, and what is your external HDD configuration? Does it have a separate power port, or are you using a Y-cable to supply the necessary power to it?

your hdd is probibly not stable with just a usb to usb connection, your probibly going to need a y cable for it to be stable.

If the drive does not have its own power supply you will need to get a USB "Y" cable to plug it in. (The "Y" cables plug in to two ports on the Wii U instead of one so the drive can draw more power.)
