    is the file larger than 4GB?, if so split it first and it's probably wise to use fat32

    Is that only the pro version? Android File Transfer doesn't work for me with nxmtp on High Sierra either.

    Works for me on High Sierra, try this if you haven't.

    I looked at the Commander One thing yesterday, yep looks like it needs pro for mtp.

    This is good advice. nxmtp/Android File Transfer worked without a hitch for me for months and then randomly decided to give me fits. Turns out that for whatever reason the PTPCamera thing was the culprit. I'm on Mojave btw.

    So far I only had one error: when trying to transfer a single 7 GB .XCI file to a 512 GB exFAT formatted MicroSD card.

    Tried two times, it hangs at 4 GB transfered.

    I guess it was the file size. I used XCI-to-Split-NSP and the problem was solved.

    Yeah, regardless if your SD is formatted to FAT32 or Exfat there is a 4gb file size transfer limit with nxmtp.

    Tried to transfer a over 3GB XCI files, got stuck midway then closed the transfer (on my pc), nothing happened so I decided to close nxmtp on my switch but the switch crashed right after, auto rebooted but couldn't load into atmosphere. Everything worked after a manual reboot though, just worried cause when the autoreboot (I think) I heard a sound coming from the fans, should I worry?

    I love this tool but as everyone else said the limit of around 4gb being able to be transferred is a real pain.

    Just use FAT32 and usb install for your NSPs or split your XCIs.

    This seems to be not working for me. SXOS 2.8 Beta on 8.1.0.

    The switch is NOT detected in the device manager, and there's no drive for the switch on explorer (windows 10).

    Switch can install nsps using fluffy just fine. And switch is detected by fluffy.

    What could the problem be?

    Give us more details about your switch, cfw, firmware, what did you do, get some error message?

    Thanks! If it´s not recognized must be the drivers.

    @Deobulakenyo, are you on latest update for Win10?

    Please check and return here:
    1. Win + R. Open up the run command with the Win + R;
    2. Type winver into the command text box and hit OK. You should see a dialog screen with that info.

    The driver must be there if you are able to push the payload while in RCM. Try that first, yeah?

    I've had trouble with this software since sometime around updating to Hekate 5.0 via atlusnx (+ sigpatches?) and/or OFW 8.10 Sometimes the drive isn't seen at all, other times it starts working but then freezes up on the computer end when I enter a specific directory or start a file transfer. It was working fine on two separate computers before and now not so much. Might also be related to the recent major Win10 update so I'll have to look into that as well.

    Seems like the latest Windows 10 update broke something, my Switch doesn't pop up in Windows file explorer anymore.
    All required drivers installed, can push payloads just fine.

    Switch 8.1.0, Atmosphere 0.9.1

    Late '17 Macbook Pro, macOS Mojave 10.14.5.
    Works without issue with Android File Transfer.

    Windows 10 release 18362.207.
    Not working at all.
    Was working fine before updating, can't remember which version I was on.
