Nintendo Wii U Storage Expansion FAQ V2.0

    4 years ago #74
    **I've recently purchased a Buffalo "Ultra-Portable & Lightweight MiniStation Stealth HD-PCTU2 500GB" storage device, off of Amazon. At first when booting up, the WiiU prompted me to format the device, it stated that it could not be formatted. After several attempts (even changing USB connection locations) I was able to format the Hard Drive. However, upon turning on the console again, the WiiU boots up, the blue light on the hard drive lights up, but then immediately the screen goes black and states that the device has been disconnected... Is this a faulty hard drive? Perhaps not compatible? Anybody else experience a similar challenge? I have the 32GB Deluxe WiiU. And currently have 15GBs of free storage. But I know its only a matter of time before I run out of internal storage space. Should I bit the bullet an buy a different device? Thanks for any feedback or suggestions.
    What a horrible night to have a curse...
