I recently formatted a 16GB flash drive for use in the system, and placed the Monster Hunter 3 demo on it. After I was done with it, I went to delete it and it's been "Deleting..." for over 2 hours. I couldn't find much information on it, but I also didn't want to turn off the console without trying something else first. Anyone have any clue or solution to this?

I would just put in your computer and format the flash drive... Unless their is something else on there you don't want to lose.

I would recommend doing what SPG said, find the file and delete it.

Add me on Wii U if you want to settle it in Smash

There was other files on the drive, but they weren't important. You can't select individual files from the computer so I just formatted it like a few of you said. I'm still not all that familiar with my Wii U, so just wanted to see if there was any unforeseeable side effects from something as simple as pulling out a drive at specific times. Anyhow, thanks for the responses.
