    I wanted to install the game Mario Slam Basketball on my 3DS R4 card so I downloaded it. When I wanted to play the game I got the error message that the name is too long and that I have to shorten it. So I tried to change the name but that didn't fix the problem

    I don't know what else to do. I already turned off my 3DS turned it back on changed the name of the file several times also deleted it from my sd card and added it back again but that didn't solve the issue either

    Do you have any ideas how I can fix this problem ?


    Thanks in advance

    Use Long Path Tool, Long Path Tool can simplify and probably end your problems in unlocking, managing and renaming files that appear to have a long filename.

    Maybe try "SMSBB" for the name (Super Mario Slam Basket Ball)

    Rename it on the PC before you drag it onto your SD, also don't put it in folders, try it on the root of the SD.

    Sorry but you're actually to late, I've already fixed it and I don't even know what you mean by this long path tool
