I bought a Toshiba 1TB External HDD for my Wii U back in June, but now it’s randomly crashing on me. It’ll make a beeping noise and then my Wii U gives me Error Codes 160-0106 and 160-2713. It claims that I unplugged the USB-C Y-Cable from the console, but I’m nowhere near the console when it happens. Sometimes it won’t even read that it’s plugged in despite the HDD powering on.
Is my HDD failing? That doesn’t make sense to me because it’s only 3 months old. I also ran a diagnostic scan with SeaTools (using the same USB-C Y-Cable), and it passed with flying colors.
