    Resize the partition to 70 gigs or so, when u fill it, resize it back to full size. This is what I did

    The SD card has to be under 999,999 blocks AFAIK. Go into data management in system settings and tell me how many blocks is free on the SD card.

    YOU find out, put some time into it, and later report back.
    Just put more files into it.

    People have already give you the solution to get it working. Resize it full it and then resize it as before or put some heavy file or bunch of game on it.

    might I recommend creating a 30gb or so dummy file, or if you happen to be into this sort of thing, a full dump of a blu ray disc should also work.

    Fill your SD card until the free space < 99GB.

    Give up using BBM/Dev.
    Use FBI instead.

    Get a 64 GB card, fill it up with games and when you get to 50% full, copy contents of card (sysnand & emunand) to your pc.
    Put your 128 GB back, restore the emunand back and copy back contents you saved previously.
    I can guarantee you 100% that now DevMenu and BBM will work perfectly.

    They were right all along, if your 128 GB card has more than 90 GB or so empty space, BBM and DevMenu will not work.

    CIA crash probably happen on the file copy or download step.
    Please check out:
    - Your source
    - Your SD reader's quality
    - Your SD quality
    - Whether your PC's USB port is stable or not

    on a side note, what brand is that 128 gb card and how much did you pay for it? a very cheap knockoff might also be the cause of trouble.
    since it otherwise works, i guess its formated to fat32 as it should be.

    the cia might truly be invalid. did you try more than one? what game were you trying to install? n3ds only games dont work on o3ds.

    Try creating a 50-75GB dummy file. Then tell me how many blocks you get then. (yeah, I know this idea is a bit extreme :P)

    Not as extreme as ditching it and buying a 64GB card.

    First of all, you CAN'T have a file bigger than 4096 MB on a FAT32 partition.
    Second, a 64 GB card can be had for $30 or less
    Third, a 64 GB card will have less lag than a 128 GB
    Fourth, if he doesn't play that many games, he's better off with an even smaller card like 32 GB
