    Just finished all the games on my SD and wanted to put some more, my SD card is small so wanna try some out but don't wanna go through the process of copying games from hard drive to SD then trying them out.

    So I think that SX now (of few months ago) has the feature of reading games from the HDD, how can I do that? Do I just have to plug it? Thanks

    Format the drive to exFAT, create a folder called "switch", place another folder named "xci" inside and put your games there.
    A few other locations work as well but I find this the most clean one.
    Then simply have your HDD plugged into your docking station and access the album icon inside SX OS (to get into their menu).

    im sure ntfs works too, i just slap my xci/nsp to the root as i only use it to store games.

    its not often i run from external anymore because i have a 500gb sd card.
