    Max size USB flash drive supported by Wii U?

    Is there any maximum supported size of USB flash drive for use with various USB loaders in the HomeBrew channel that anyone knows of? I can't find a definitive answer on Google.

    I think the max limit is 2TB.


    I have 1.5TB FAT32 hard drive in a single partition and it works great.

    Odd that FAT32 works for you. I had to format my flash drive to WBFS to work.

    And for external spinning drives, they need to be powered by AC/DC rather than USB, correct? So like a WD MyBook?

    I used to use a smaller 250gig drive that was powered only by the USB power output of the Wii.

    If you plan on using a hard drive in a Wii U, then it needs to have external power.
