So the Hard Disk attached to the Wii U has failed. I keep getting the error code 160-0105. On reading up on this, there may be issues with the power draw on the Wii U, especially as the console appears to not like sharing it’s power connection with others. I’ve got a new disk on order, which is scheduled to arrive on Monday.
I think the difference here is that the new one is powered straight off of the mains, whilst the other was designed to be used with a laptop, requiring a USB Y cable to work properly with the Wii U.
Just my luck, isn’t it. The USB disk fails the day I get Hyrule Warriors. Never mind. Though, I now have a few games that I need to re-download, and beat again. At least Nintendo won’t make me pay for them again.
