    Due to some formatting, I have to setup my microSD again, so I figured I might as well make this topic now seeing as it's the perfect time.

    Anyways, I was hoping people would post their method of organization (if any) of their games, music, movies, and other stuff.
    The one way I figured you could organize the games was by making a folder for every letter (#. A-Z) and put the games in accordingly. Another method of organization (I got it set-up like this) was by category, like for Mario games, make a folder called Mario and for Pokemon games make a folder called Pokemon, etc.

    So I would really appreciate it if you gize posted on your method of organizing your content (if any).

    Interesting. (Although I probably won't organize my games like that because .. no offense .. but I don't like it that much, but it's a consideration).

    With my motto: When in doubt, put everything on root

    No. It would get too confusing especially, if/when I backup my Saves. But I guess it does load faster.. nope, not worth it.

    I have "SAVES" and "TEXT" folders and a games folder for my non-homebrew card and on my homebrew card I have games and Apps folders and all the system folders hidden.

    Because I have a 8GB microSD and a CycloDS so CycloDS have a limit of 128 games in roots so I sorted the games into 0-J, K-R and S-Z folders. Also a homebrew folders. [​IMG]

    Initially on the hard drive following my GBA collection, I went with parent folders labeled by ROM size and sub-folders labeled by library style (A_E, F_J, K_O, P_T, U_Z). While it helped when fitting gba files on a cartridge, the seperation by file size was no longer needed due to the large sd card sizes; I continued using the library style. However, five categories was not enough so I abandoned that and now I'm using game type classification on both the hard drive and the sd card. The kids like it a lot more.

    I have mine under as such:

    Games (backups and homebrews)
    Multimedia (split up to MP3s, videos, pictures, and text files)
    Applications (other stuff that doesn't fit as a game, eg. dictionaries, DSOrganize, etc)

    Things might get messy with bigger capacities as I only have a 1GB card. [​IMG]

    I'm going to keep my setup my Alphabets because it's simple (for NDS). Then a folder for Music, Movies, and perhaps Homebrew/Apps.
