    No, your mistaken. You can't get a 3GB file on a 1GB card.

    and DO NOT type each of you words with a capital, it is not correct English.

    EDIT: and it is hard to read, very hard.

    Off the top of my head, it sounds like it might be a file system issue on your sd card. I'm going to stop short of telling you to reformat it, but I've had to reformat my G6 Lite when such things happened (impossible file sizes.) Perhaps someone with your same hardware will chime in with a CONSTRUCTIVE solution.

    ..and speaking of re-formatting, I took the liberty of re-formatting your question, so as to not rile the grammar police.

    Something like this happened to me awhile back when i was trying to put a hacked gba game. When i loaded it, all of these files appeared suddenly, as well as folders with weird names. When i clicked the folder in the r4 menu, it would freeze.

    Not sure why this happened but a simple reformat, as mthrnite stated, should do the trick and get rid of all of these files.

    And wii_ds stfu, he was asking a question, and you replied with a useless post on how it was "hard to read". Please stop wasting everyone's time and post something productive once in awhile.

    Reformat, duh. If anything on your MicroSD ever fucks up, formatting is ALWAYS what you should do first. Copy all your .sav and .nds and whatever else files that you care about over, and format your card. It's good to do this periodically anyway, reduces fragmenting on your card and decreases load times.

    Just because it says "12.5GB" doesn't mean its actually taking up that much space. That is why computers have separate readings for "size" and "size on disk".

    Release groups quite often make 50KB mini-images appear to be full blown 4.7GB in order to fool anti-piracy measures.

    Yah he is right.

    All though go to: My Computer->Then right click on your Micro SD card and click properties and have a look at the pie graph and all it says.

    But as everyone else said i think a re-format is due.

    It happened to me. Backup your important files and format your card. Worked fine for me. Never had the same problem again.

    Clearly This Isn't Annoying To Read At All. Why, Everyone Should Do It All The Time.

    NEITHER IS THIS IT SEEMS, SURELY MY WORDS ARE BIGGER RIGHT? SO, MUCH EASIER TO READ!
