Do we know of any USB-powered drives that will work with Wii U, and don't feature a save-stopping sleep feature? I'm talking about HDDs that would probably require a Y-cable, as I'd prefer to just plug the drive into the back of my Wii U and kind-of ignore it afterward.

There was an issue with a user here that had that problem. His HDD would automatically go to sleep and would prevent saving or accessing that drive. He/She ended up getting a different HDD and it worked for him/her.

Interesting

Thanks!

What about an external hard drive that doesn't have it's own power supply?

You can use a Y cable that use 2 USB ports for power.

so are most people just buying the basic and using external HD sources? Seems easier if you can find one for cheap somewhere?


Yes, most of the earlier adopters went out and bought the 8GB and then later attached a HDD if they wanted to either go Digital or download more than one game.

Thanks, It does come in handy. I have to update the list when I get a chance. A lot of games have been added and I completely didn't update them. Back to work now!

So basically, any harddrive with an external power supply will work perfect with the Wii U. Doh

Out of all the 2TB external hard drives, which one has the most success rate with the Wii U? I plan to make this console all digital so my kids don't scratch up the discs.

I have a question relating to a 750GB hard drive i have:
-When i install full games and DLC on to there, can i re-download them if something happens to my hard drive at no extra charge?
