    Hi all, i have a question


    ( version 6.0 ) ( hbmenu v2.0.0 )



    I am having an issue with using an ExFat SD card in my switch as hbmenu does not detect the switch folder


    (i cant use Fat32 as i need files more than 4.0gb)


    • I have tried multiple sd cards and reformatting them

    • I have also been using files from https://github.com/tumGER/SDFilesSwitch/releases (but have tried files from other places)

    • I have had homebrew running before with success, it's simply that i much change to exfat because i need more than 4.0gb of fat32


    (briefly one time my switch did seem to work with exfat and when running tinfoil i received error code: 2345-0031 )


    Thanks for any assistance

    i have seen that others have seen the notification that A system update is required to use the microSDXC memory card

    i did not receive this on my switch

    does the advice that my console lacks the exFAT patch still hold true

    To check if you have exFAT, go under the Health & Safety Information then scroll to the Error Codes. Underneath you will see several numbers. If you see an A next to #3, then you do not have exFAT support but if you see a B, then you do.

    If you see an A, you will need to get the exFAT update as posted above. If you see a B, it is possible your exFAT formatted SD card has been corrupted. Either repair or reformat your SD card to fix the corruption.

    1. How did you update? Through OFW or choi?
    2. If you updated through Choi did you apply the exfat update?

    (health and safety displays a B next to number 3) and i updated the normal nintendo way, i did not apply the exfat update. (also i have tried multiple SD cards and have reformatted) (both sd cards of reputable bands, fast speeds, and large sizes)

    Try formatting it to fat32 again and inserting in your switch, once it reboots and sees fat32 then try again with exfat and should ask for it to download again if not and you have no problem to reset your whole switch factory defaults and try again, or you can try and patch it yourself if that doesn't work.
