    Hey all, I have a question about my recently-purchased EZ-Flash IV. I read a setup guide here on GBATemp and got the EZ4 kernel to install, and am able to run almost every game I've tried (save for the Boktai games; I get a white screen when I try to run them, but that's a whole 'nother story).

    However, when I scroll through the list of games alphabetically in the EZ-Flash IV menu it stops at the end of the 'P's (Pokemon Emerald, in my case) and there are no more games listed despite the fact that I loaded many more onto my SD card. Does anyone know why this issue is occurring? My only guess is that there's a limit to how many games can appear in the EZ-Flash menu.

    Since I'm a new owner of an EZ-Flash card I don't really know why this is happening, so any advice would be appreciated!

    you are correct in there is a limit per folder
    I think its about 80 files
    so just create a second folder on the root and add the remaining roms to that folder

    Thank you for the quick response! So I can copy and paste the additional files in my first rom folder into a new one? Or do I have to re-send the additional games?

    Since they are already patched you can just cut and paste them.
