    Hello,

    I'm kind of a n00b to the flashcart scene, so i'll try to describe my problem the best I can. Just got an R4i SDHC and have v2.0.04B running on it. Got a 16GB microSD with over 500 roms on it. However, only 300 roms show up in the menu. Some of the roms aren't that showing up have long names (i.e. "Castlevania - Order of Ecclesia (U).nds"), so I renamed them using less characters. After doing that, they show up, BUT the rom count still shows as 300.

    All the roms are in the root of the microSD.

    I'm at a loss as to why I can't get more than 300 roms to show up. Is this just a limitation of the R4i cards? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Have you verified all of the 500+ ROMS are readable by coping them back to your PC?
