Hi,

Apologies if this has already been answered but I wonder if anyone can help? I have a 32gb sd card that was about 25gb full of installed cia games. After failing to install a cia (SSBupdate) I had to power down my system. When I put it back on all my CIA game were no longer visible on my home menu. I opened BBmenu as a rom file and I can see that all my games etc are still on the card just not showing up.

Basically, am I screwed? Will I have to redo emunand and then install all the games again?

Any help much appreciated!

I've had this same problem too and noone really helped me. If you ever figure it out let me know I've had to get a new SD card and pretty much just stopped using CIA altogether

Yeah, I had done that. Right now I have injected my old emnand back into the sd card and have started installing cia files - which so far seems to be going okay.

your lucky, it messed my SD card that not even my old emunand would work
If you still had that fault SD card and it still doesn't work, you can try booting up a live CD of Gparted with the SD card plugged in, boot into gparted and start clearing all partitions untill you are left with one single, unallocated space.
Format that to fat32 or exfat (or whatever) and it should be back to normal.

That wouldn't have worked I don't think - none of the installed games were showing up even though they were still on the program list. Like phazonknight I don't think I'll be using cias as much as I thought i would.

I'm having this issue with Mario Kart 7 installed on an 8GB Kingston MicroSD card. It's passed hwtest just fine.
No solution for me though :(

    I'm fortunate to have had some managers over the years who I've straight up told to go fuck themselves, and not get in trouble for it. Help that I've been on the receiving end of that as well lmao

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I luckily haven't had a boss in over 20 years, (independent contractor) but the people I do work for, it's pretty much like they my bosses, and yea some can be assholes. But there has been many jobs I've walked off and mailed they're checks back to them.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Bosses should yell at workers for mess ups they just need to know the difference in abuse and punishment
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I don't abuse or curse at my employess, I feel like waving the gun around gets the point across just fine.

    That's how all of my last managers have been in this job and my last one. Last time I had a manager where I was being micromanaged to hell and back was over a decade ago when I worked retail

    I had to micromanage the managers

    At my last job I (as an individual contributor, not a manager or supervisor or anything) used to be the one to tell my manager when I was traveling for work "hey I'm gonna be out of office between x and y dates, I got something on the other side of the country I'm gonna go work on"
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Which was not the normal dynamic for that role lmao
