I have a few .nsp games installed and have been using them for over a month all of a sudden now when i try and open them i get an error the software was closed because an error occurred. I checked settings and data management. The space for the games are still taken up on my sd card but they all show 0mb besides mario odyssey that shows 7.3mb but wont play also. Was wondering if anyone knew what the issue was

Are you still using CFW? You must be running CFW like ReiNX or Hekate in order to be able to play pirated games.

i was on 1.6 when i realized the issue then downloaded 1.8 to see if it would make a difference i cant see why going back to 1.6 would fix the issue since that is what i was on

256gb card? Where did you get it and how much? I suspect you have a cloned card and the write wrapped around and nuked your game files.

Out of curiosity! What country are you living on for you not knowing that 256Gb SD Cards don't exist? I have 5 256Gb. Cards & 2 400Gb. Cards.
I'm currently using 1 400Gb. Card for .XCI Games & the other 400Gb. Card for .NSP Games. One 256Gb. For HB Retro Emulation :)

Here is the link to proof to you that the SD Cards do exits. The best part about it, is that the 256Gb. Cards are very affordable...

PS
The SD Cards are 100% legit. None Clone...:switch:

its a genuine 256gb sandisk i have been using it since sx os came out, i hate to wipe the sd card clean but it looks like that might be my only solution. I dont understand what could have happened and why all the games register as 0mb but are clearly taking up the space on my sd card. Some of the games were installed using freeshop nx and others with the sx os menu not sure if that makes a difference

he's not implying they don't exist, he's implying that he may have a fake card.

one thing I can think of is that sd cards need to have a certain ammount of free space to function properly. so if you say you have a 256gb and you only have 4gb left then that can create issues. they say you should leave at least 10% free space on sd/ssd's which in your case would be about 25gb.

this happened to me on REinx 2 so this just happens on nsp files only for me fix is to just delete the game and reinstall it ezpz
it's not ezpz when you have 250gb of games installed.

Your card could be in a locked state, basically it could be at the end of it's life.
Can you still write to the card?

Is the mysterious exfat corruption at work?
This. I'm pretty sure you are formated to exFAT right ? and used some homebrew lately.

Had the exact same issue and it seems that FAT32 fixed it (seems because I didn't have the chance to play as much as I want lately).
