Error code 160-4711?
Ok so I got a new usb to use with my wii u. Trouble is I get error code 160-4711 whenever I try to transfer stuff to it. Anyone know a fix? krsonic - 6 years ago
It seems that the Wii U may not supply enough power to work with some drives that pull power from the USB port. Even if you use a y cable to pull power from two of the ports.
If it is a power problem and you're using a y cable, you might try plugging the extra power cable from the y to a powered USB hub. If that worked, I'd probably move the saves to the Wii U to be safe. Then look for an externally powered drive. It wouldn't hurt to check for drives specifically recommended for Wii U. RetroSpective19 - 6 years ago
