    For people that have 50+ roms on their flash carts, how do you guys organize it?

    Is having too many games on the flash cart bad? whats your opinion?

    I care deeply, sir.

    I think I'm under fifty..

    -Game boy
    -NES
    -NDS
    Just like that. If I end up getting more, maybe subfolders.

    I keep the number of games on my card very low. Around 10 or so. It keeps me from having to worry about organization.

    I just use the release numbers to organize mine. But for Older games (nes, gb, and gbc) I use separate folders in my hombrew folder.

    I just have a folder called DS Games, I put all the games I care about in it. Homebrew stuff goes in a Homebrew folder. Emulators are in a folder labeled for that particular emu. I rename all my files to a normal name for the game, I don't leave them in that cryptic naming scheme or with ROM numbers, unless required by an emu. As long as I don't have more the 127 ROMs in the folder (CycloDS), I'm good. I usually have about 100 at any given time. I like having the "pocket arcade", so I also load up my M3 Perfect slot2 with a bunch of GBA games and homebrew. Depending on my mood that day, I have hundreds of games to choose from to play at any given time. That's just the way I roll.

    I just throw them to the root of my card. I don't have many games at the same time. I play, beat, delete.

    It was SO pointless you had to post to make everyone aware of it, hadn't you? Pfft.

    Used to do it by letter, A-I, K-M, N-Z, something like that. Then I lost all my ROMs when my PC corrupted my microSDHC 8gigger, so I ended up just just doing the copy, play, delete thing. [​IMG]

    Just how many space you got on your MicroSd?

    With a 1MB card I can barely keep about 10~15 games in it. I just put all the roms on the root, alphabetically sorted, there's really no 'secret' to it.

    I keep them in alphabetical order. Grouping them up so you have to navigate more seems pretty pointless and trivial to me.

    In a folder at the root called Nintendo DS Games.
    Although I arrange them alphabetically, removing the release numbers.
