    I don't think I've ever put that many images on the SD I use for my EZ4, but I've never seen this problem. I suspect though that the obvious solution is to make a couple folders, or more if need be, on your SD and put no more then 80 ROM images in each.

    I had this same issue when using EZ4 on my GBA. Splitting up the folders helps, but be careful with saves. Even if you split up ROMS into folders, the SAVER folder has the same issue with over 80 or so .sav files and the ones after 80 will be corrupted and not readable. This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

    yea i realize the problem with the saver even if i put the roms in another folder

    i really hope the ez team will address this issue
    this is particularly upsetting considering i have a 2GB miniSD and only using it to store GBA roms lol

    It's probably the limitation of FAT16.

    How would it be? Windows-based HDs were FAT16 at one time. It's a limitation of the card's reader.

    With that said, why you need 80 roms is just baffling. you'll never play all of them... you play even fewer to completion.

    I have had no problems with my EZ4 Lite at all. It has ran every rom perfectly for me. I have not had a problem with the more than 80 roms thing but why have 80 + games!?

    Well I use my EZ4 with my Micro, and it's nice just having a ton of games always with me and not have to worry about switching any out. I almost never take the EZ4 out of the Micro
