    I'm Using EDGE FW v.1.37 with sandisk Micro SDHC 8GB class 4, formating on FAT32.
    All games can be play, but the games list only showing 127 list, although there was 200+ on the card.
    Anyone have the same problem?

    Do you mean 127 at SDHC root, then another 127 in a new folder? dont work.
    or two folder of 127 games? don't work either.

    Why do they telling that EDGE support till 32GB if the game list only show 127 game title?
    Or should we wait further FW Update?

    Cyclods onlus supports 127 files per folder. So i'm sure its the same with an edge. The limitation was made by team cyclops to help stop the menu from lagging.

    Is it formatted FAT ??

    It could be the file limitation of FAT and number of files in the ROOT FOLDER!

    as above put a limited number of roms in a FOLDER and then make several folders [​IMG]

    you could catagorize them SPORT,ADVENTURE,PUZZLE etc for easy finding [​IMG]

    keeps em neat too [​IMG]

    Do you mean format it back to FAT16? but putting all folder on the SD root didn't show on file browser, it still count 127 games on the root folder.

    Can you not put games in FOLDERS on the EDGE card??

    then browse to each folder and open them then launch a game??

    eg in the root

    SPORT GAMES

    RACING GAMES

    ADVENTURE GAMES

    OTHER GAMES

    and have say 50 or 100 in each folder?

    and try limit the amount of games/files actually in main ROOT folder [​IMG]

    Just back from dinner & testing again, and voila! the problem solved! just because there is left any *.sav & *.nds files on the SD root, so another created folder can't be seen.
    Now each folder has 127 games & it well organized. Thanks A lot Guys, this is really helping out. [​IMG]
