    I am brand new to the forum, hi everybody! This is my first DS multi media flashcart. I have two DS's I'm working with, a Lite and an original "fat" one.

    I have a brand new r4i gold 3ds card ( card with 8GB sdhc memory card, the Christmas themed box. I have put wood 1.42 on the card,copy my games over I put them in a "game" folder on the root. I turn on the DS and load up the game, dasora or something and see the gbatemp screen, yay!

    Next I browse to the memory card and the game folder I can see the first few game icons and then they turn into game names with question mark icons and finally weird named folders. I know if I put 1 game on it, it works - the problem seems to come when I fill up the memory card, I think.

    Anybody know about this? Is there a limit to games, should I update the kernel? I have read the new users guide, but don't know if I'm missing a step in upgrading the DS or the cart fw/sw levels.

    Thank you!

    No need to update kernel if wood 1.42 is the latest one.
    I've 100 roms in one folder called GAMES and all names works for me well.
    I think you should do full microSD format, upload wood and then roms.
