    Just explain the general layout of your SD card. No need to include everything, just give a general idea.

    The root of my cart consists of two (unhidden) folders. One is titled "Emulators/GBA" where I keep my emulators, and inside of that folder is a folder called "GBA" where I keep all my GBA roms. All of the roms for my emulators are in hidden folders on my root. My other visible folder is titled, "Homebrew, etc" where I just have homebrew games and applications. Nothing special. Moonshel is in the normal place (I'm using a cyclo, so I don't have to worry about that).
    All of my NDS roms are on my root, so once you scroll past the first two folders, you can see all my my NDS games. I'm tempted to make a NDS folder, but idk.

    4 Folders in ROOT

    1. NDS Games
    2. Music
    3. Homebrew
    4. Videos

    This is the main layout for all my Flashcards

    Everything else is hidden [​IMG] [​IMG]

    GBA games
    NDS games
    megadrive roms (i keep a megadrive emu here too)
    completed (dunno why i keep them on my card, but its just over a quarter full so I have no reason to delete stuff)
    playing (where I keep games I am playing heavily, so I don't do something stupid like forget, or start yet another game. i sort of have a new years resolution to actually complete games rather than stopping half way through when i get distracted by another game)

    Ever since I split up my games by genre, I am having a much easier time figuring out what I want to play.

    Ugh I know the feeling. When I actually bought games, I felt the need to complete every game, since I paid for it, but now that it's all 'free', I just blow through games, even if they're fun, just because i have more games to play.

    My folders are:
    -Games (All NDS Games)
    -Homebrews, Other Games and Misc.
    -And a whole bunch of folders needed for some homebrew to run properly

    I don't organize my file in any specific way I just dump all the stuff here and there of course I do a monthly cleanup and keep my NDS games in a folder entitled "NDS" (I have a M3) but other than that I have it in no specific way lol.

    not organised, I have the messiest card ever.
    _System_
    TTMenu
    System items
    thousands of .savs
    NDS games + YSMenu.nds

    only reason they're even in that order is because the savs are small and the ds games are massive.
