    Hello,

    im using sky3ds with diskwriter, everything works - the problem is when i tried to load
    braveley default and monster hunter 4 ( both 4gb roms ) i get an error " not enough free space to add image "

    the total free space : 6824 Mb ( Largest free block is 2048 Mb)

    I figures it has something to do with the largest free block?

    i hope someone could help me

    Thanks


    / im using 16 GB samsung evo micro sd card. tried like 10 games, all worked only those big GB roms dont

    It is to do with the largest free block. If you add a game, add another after that then remove the former, you no longer have a contiguous free block, so games can only be written as far as each block of free space goes.
    I'd try to back up the card in diskwriter, clear it then restore back.

    Edit: I assumed things wrong, backup isn't it. Optimize is what you want, though you still have to restore what it outputs.

    Make a backup of all your save files and use the Optimize function to cram all the games together, creating one continuous block of free memory.
