    Not sure what is happening here. I am on the latest recommended firmware with sx pro. I think its 7 or maybe 6.2

    Anyways some games work as XCI like mario bros U and donkey kong freeze.

    Others I get the Checking if game can be played message and then the game fails to open. When I take my sd card out to put more games on it and then reinsert back into the switch the thing doesn't power back on. Its a headache and takes hours for it to finally work again.

    Lastly on the games that don't play I get a corruption error.

    Are all of these issue because my 256gb Samsung sd card is formatted as EXFAT?

    How would I even play some of these games as FAT32 when they are so large?

    First, whenever you just bought a new, high capacity sd card, always check it's integrity. It is well known that there are a lot of fake sd card out there.

    Fake sd card will show higher capacity then it's actual capacity is. So, it may run fine when you just start using it. But when you store more files and exceed it's actual capacity, then it will start causing a lot of problem/corrupted files.
