    Note that not all games work via SD Card.

But the weard part is i onley get error whene i have the SD card in it, if i pull it out and start the console i get to HBMenu :/ anyone know what could be problem, i am using a original SD frome the store 32gig Sandisk. i could start a game befor it did this and have had it off for some min. Should i try to redo the guide or something?

    No need to redo, just re-read.

    The nds launcher crashes with SD cards larger than 2gb. You need to use twilightmenu++ or switch to a card 2gb or less.

    The NDS has 256Mbyte of internal memory (NAND) for DSiWare titles that you can not access directly (and NAND writes are dangerous). You currently have a copy of that 256Mb storage on your SD card, though and HiyaCFW redirects the official launcher to your SD card. It basically tells the System "This is your NAND"

    But the Nintendo launcher simply doesn't know how to address the large NAND as it was never designed to use more than 256Mb.

    That's why you need to install TWiLightMenu++ and make it your default launcher, because this homebrew launcher knows how to address the large SD card. You can use TWiLightMenu++ to launch DSiware and NDS roms on your 32Gb SD card.
