    Hey guys,

    Im using a fat32 SD card atm but still get corrupted data when I play some games. Im using tinfoil/Hbg downloading them straight onto the sd card. SXOS user. Any solution to this?

    Thanks!

    It is likely that you need signature patches

    He is using SX OS so he doesn't need any external patches.

    Is it possible your card is failing?

    might be, but I did a full reformatted on sd. Is corrupted games always the microsd fault?

    Try using h2testw on your sd card to make sure it wasnt sd card problem.

    A failing card (if it is a material failure) cannot be fixed simply by formating. Do a hardware test with h2testw maybe to check if it's failing?
    If it is a dead sd, only solution is to get a new one.

    im using hbg shop atm and some games, but not all come up corrupted, is there any downside to installing games directly to the switch's nand rather than the sd card?

    There's a finite amount of space when installing to NAND whereas with the SD card, you have as much space as you can afford with an SD card.

    So I realized that when I download the game from hbg shop to the nand, it will still have corrupted data. Is it possible that it isn't my switch or sd card?

    Btw the sd card using is the sdxc nintendo 128 sd card purchased from a local retailer.

    Get the game from a different source then.
