    Ok, so I actually have 150,000+ blocks of memory left, using freeshop to get old dsiware games, says I don't have enough space for anymore. But yet I just got a normal eshop game that is much bigger than what I was going to get in dsiware. I don't understand what is going on are dsiware games stored differently or something?

    DSiWare are stored in nand, not the sd. The free blocks are how many blocks you have on the sd card, not nand.
    NAND can only hold a few dsiware games. And no you can't install dsiware to sd.

    Stop downloading so many games and actually play the ones you've downloaded.

    Lol yeah I know, just thought since they were so small it didn't matter, oh well thanks guys. Btw so normal eshop games and 3ds cias, are stored on the sd card though I take it then

    That won't solve his problem at all. NAND can only hold 5 or 6 full dsiware games. I don't think having 5/6 dsiware games is a lot :unsure:

    I forgot the limit, but I know nand can't hold many dsiwares.

    That's pretty much all the good DSiware games out there

    You can have up to 40 on NAND, but that includes redirectors, flash cart launchers, etc. They also have to be small to get that many on there.
