Adding Unpowered USB Hard Drive To Wii U and Disabling Hidden Sleep Mode Setting

In today’s video I show you how to use a USB Y cable to connect an unpowered USB hard drive to your Wii U.
I also show you how to access the hidden hard drive sleep mode settings on the Wii U. If you leave the sleep mode enabled, you’re going to run into performance issues when you have to wait for the hard drive to spin back up. Disabling sleep mode prevents the drive from spinning down.

If you want to purchase one of these USB Y cables for your Wii U, check out the links below.
