    I just purchased it on eShop, and anytime the system sleeps it's telling me it can't access the Micro SD card so the download gets canceled.

    So I tried upping the sleep time to 30 min (shouldn't take that long). But then that same message pops up on its own while the device is still awake.

    I have 26.4 GB left according to the Switch, I should have plenty of room. I have tried turning it off, putting the card back in, and starting again. Same stuff.

    Update: It does this upon completing the download.

    Try reformatting the SD card using SD Formatter (backup its contents to your PC before). If that fails and you have enough space left in your Switch's System Memory, turn off your console, take out your SD card, then start the download so the game downloads there.

    Looks like it finished while I was getting some work done, after at least 10 tries
