MK8 Update may have messed up my HDD!!!

So yesterday I updated Mario Kart 8 to get the new Dlc and 200cc mode... Which is awesome by the way... But now today the Wii U hangs on the logo screen. If I wait long enough I get error code 160-0103 saying there is a problem with the system memory.
I called Nintendo and even though my Wii U is out of warranty they are going to repair it which is awesome. But now there is a new development

The update was downloaded to my external hard drive. I found that if I unplug the hard drive from the Wii U it will actually work. The only problem is that I have some games and save data on the hard drive that I really don't want to lose (shovel Knight and wind waker to name a few)

I can't access the hard drive unless I plug it in while powered down, but if I do that my Wii u won't even boot to the system menu. Had anyone else had experience with this that can offer any help? Nintendo is sending a shopping label for me to send it in by my concern is that (apparently) the problem is my hard drive not the system. I don't want to send in the system for 3 weeks and the problem not be solved. As of now I can't find a way to get anything off of my drive.

Another note :this is one of the 320gb PDP drives from GameStop that plugs in with 2 usb cables.

Any help is VERY MUCH appreciated.

Hmm. I dunno man. Not sure if it will work but maybe try copying your save files from the old HD to a new HD or USB drive and see.

So.... Turned on my N72013 after it had been dead for a week or so. It keeps freezing and glitching out on the lockscreen. Tried wiping cache, no luck. Tried deleting themes folder, no luck.

Eventually just gave up and did a clean flash. For some reason it STILL is freezing at the boot animation. Running blisspop bit that shouldn't matter as it was working fine for days on this ROM last week.

Maybe my N7 finally died?
Any suggestions are welcome. 

UPDATE: after several tries it had gotten to the Welcome screen. Got a bunch of crashes and now the message "process android.process.media has stopped" is persistent. I hope my storage didn't go bad.

Sup guys!
Just got a Wii U last week (finally) and I'm looking for some recommendations.
I'm looking for games with a good story.

So far I have Mario Kart 8, Hyrule Warriors, Nintendoland, ZombiU, and Smash Bros. I like them all so far, been a long time Mario Kart and Smash Bros player.

What Wii U games have the most immersive story in your opinion?

Hey guys...
Anybody out there on BlissPop 1.5... I just flashed from 1.3 and it's cool but does anyone know of a way to change back to the light theme? I was digging the dark settings but I don't really care for the dark notifications.  Any help is much appreciated.

Those catz must be mad.....300??? But really MadCatz, smart marketing. Announce it at 300, get tons of attention/media coverage, then lower the price to somewhat reasonable in a couple months. People will buy.

If I have to sit through another "Unfriended" trailer I'm going to flip.

OK my first thoughts on this were not too positive, but after thinking a little more about it I think this could work really well.

First off, some Nintendo IP's would work really well on mobile. Pokemon would probably sell like crazy. Also, racing games are a big market on mobile. I think an F-Zero game on mobile would do really well if executed correctly.

Also think about this-- if more "casual" type games move to mobile we could see more serious, immersive experiences on their core consoles. Right now there is a perception that the Wii U and 3DS are more casual platforms. Nintendo could market their next console more heavily to "hardcore" gamers and maybe even won back 3rd party support. Leave the motion controlled, experimental stuff to mobile and let the NX console be more of a core gaming experience.

Just my thoughts.

It amazes me that they have yet to bring 3d sonic back up to the level of SADX and SA2B. They're just missing the physics or something. Actually I remember not looking Sonic Heroes very much bit that game was still better than anything after it (in 3d that is. Sonic 4 was OK, I haven't tried any of the other recent sidescrollers)

Trying out blisspop... Loving it, but is anybody else out there having issues with SMS or MMS? Stock messaging app won't send texts and no SMS app that I've used can receive texts.

Is this a universal cm12/lollipop issue? Is there some kind of fix?
