    Hello,

    I've got SanDisk 8GB microSD but I've noticed about 10 or so games are missing from CycloDS game menu? Why is this happeneing? This is annoying me as I wanted to play Puyo Pop [​IMG]

    Thanks

    Try splitting some games into another folder. I can't remember if it happens with Cyclo but some cards have a limit on how many games you can have in one folder.

    That's cool in CycloDS's case. That reminded me of an MP3 player I had last year. It only plays 99 songs in one folder so I had to make folders. And my music library is not from iTunes (I think you know)...

    I think the CycloDS has a limit of 128 games (not sure if thats the right number) in one folder so just split it into folders.

    This same thing happened to me a few weeks ago and it was driving me nuts. I believe it's 128 in each folder.

    Ahhh it fixed it! Thanks so much! Yup, you are right it's 128 games per games. Half bad half good.

    Bad - more work to sort it out

    Good- make me more tidy! [​IMG]

    Fixed it by naming Folders 0-J, K-R and S-Z in the root.

    Thanks again sooo much [​IMG]

    So it's pretty common that you guys have 128+ games on your cards?

    Owch.. How big is one game, roughly?

    Well they most likely have SDHC microsd cards. A game however can range in sizes. About 8MB to 256MB(only 1 game right now). The most common sizes you'll see are either 16, 32, or 64. Some are 128 which can be trimmed down by a lot usually and some can be 16.
