ROM Hack Issue with Sky3DS DiskWriter V1.06

I recently bought a 64GB Samsung Micro SD card directly from Amazon with the intention of using it with my new Sky3DS. After uploading about 30 ROMS, I got a prompt that a 30 entry limit was reached and I couldn't upload any more. The SD card worked in the 3DS, however when I put the SD card back into my computer the DiskWriter only listed 4 ROMS on the card, even though I have 30 on it and I'm able to cycle through them when the SKY3DS is the console.

I wondered if anyone would be able to help with couple of questions.

1. I was under the impression that the SKY3DS has no game limit. Is this correct?

2. Does anyone know how to resolve the issue with only 4 games showing up on the DiskWriter?

I was just concerned because if for whatever reason I have to wipe the SD, I can only select the save data of the first 4 ROMS to back up and restore, which means I would lose the sava data from the other 26 ROMS. Also, a few roms I've uploaded on the card aren't working and I'd like to get them off without formatting it and starting again.

I'm using V1.06 of DiskWriter on a PC running Window 8. I'm running DiskWriter 'as administrator' and the SD card is definitely official and not a fake.

Any advice would be greatly welcomed.

    One thing that just occurred to me.... The sound on the 2600 sucked less back then the harsh sound we hear now is from infinitely better speakers we have now, back when the 2600 was new speakers produced a almost muffled sound, like CRTs made old graphics look slightly better.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I wonder if I could recommend that to some emulation devs that perhaps the sound could use some smoothing out to simulate those old TVs
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think a few of the early systems could benefit from that, at least up to the 8 bit generation, by the 16 bit generation I think TVs had gotten a lot better in almost every way

    Just give it a try, but honestly if you have a 3DS you can play DS games without a card just off the internal SD card
