If you have recently received your WODE some of you might be wondering why there are two USB cables. That is simply because on some Wii consoles there is not sufficient power being delivered from the USB port to power both the WODE unit and a USB powered HDD.

The user manual on-line at the WODE forum will be updated but currently still shows the single USB WODE base in the guide.

99.99% of all users do not need to plug both in. But the WODE philosophy is to be pro-active in this regard.
