ExFat? If so you're probably corrupted and have to start over.

If that's the case, when you format do Fat32, you'll just have to install games larger than 4 gb with your usb type c cable from your computer.

You should reformat your sd card to Fat32, and install your games through usb. There's several programs that let's you do that Tinfoil, Aluminum Foil and Goldleaf. I use Aluminum Foil, but most people recommend Goldleaf.

i use goldleaf but when i try to install big titles sometimes it says an error about low firmware and i have to restart it or sometimes it makes the game corrupted after i tryto install its update and shows the same error.. does it have to do with the card being in exfat?

Well that might just be because your firmware is too low. There's really no reason not to update to the latest firmware 8.1 as everything still works on it, and it's the easiest way to play all the newest games that are out.

I cannot tell you where to find the firmware online, but if/once you do you can use this tutorial to update.

The corruption though is likely due to exfat.

Hey man,

I have a similar problem but just with the difference that when I format the SD to FAT32, the Nintendo Switch force me to format in exFat. I mean, it is that or the console doesn´t read anything there. Also, when I was trying to install nsp files, some of the disappear for some reason. I have a Samsung Evo Plus 256 GB. What could it be?

Hrrm I'm not really sure. Did you use GUIFormat to format the card to Fat32? You might want to make a new thread asking so more people will see it.
