    Today I've changed the filesystem of my sd card from exfat to fat32.
    I backuped all my games on my computer then formatted the sd card to fat32 and copied the backup on it,
    but now all of my games except the one I just installed refuse to launch with this error "Could not start software. Please try again from the HOME Menu".

    They are on it, didn't formulate it well.
    I've backed up my all files on the sd card and copied the backup on the sd card after formatting it to fat32.

    No, I copied my backup on the sd card twice, but it still fails to launch my games.

    What about games greater than 4GB? Did you ignore those?

    If they're games installed on an sd card the 4 gb limit doesn't matter. They get broken down into smaller parts in Nintendo folder. They're just a bunch of letters and numbers and you wouldn't even know which games are which.

    Ah, yeah I just reinstalled all my games when I made the switch to FAT32. Was afraid of complications that might come up.
