    Sorry if this has been asked, but I just want to check something. I have a 2.5 inch SATA Hard Drive that's 640GB, if I got a USB enclosure for it (like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002JPELYK/ref=noref?ie=UTF8&psc=1&s=computers ) would I be able to use the hard drive with the Wii-U at all? I have my doubts but I just want to get a good answer.


    Never mind. Tried it myself. It works.

    Next question. How do I transfer my system update data to the hard drive? That is possible right?


    I don't think it's possible. I could be wrong but there is no way to do that because it automatically downloads from the internet.

    The is the new version; Version 3.1.0 U

    Here is the official word from the site, there is no way to download it to a USB device to update it that way.
