    Sure!
    I'll see what I can to the OP about that.
    I haven't been using RA Switch much, but would you mind specifying what is the detail per-se?

    Aren't you able to load the .cue file in RetroArch? I'm not at my Switch atm, hence the question!

    I installed today Retroarch for the first time on my switch, already downloaded assets and all the basics, but when i copy my rom folder into my sd and then put it on my switch i get a file with the folder name of my roms with a size 0, i read arround this thread and someone said i had to format my sd card from extfat to fat32, does that means that if i want to use retroarch i have to forcefully format my sd to the old fat32 format? :(

    Forcefully?

    Also preferably yes, use fat32 - because no one will help you when you managed to corrupt your filesystem, which happens when writes to the sdcard are interrupted, and fat32 turned out to be more resilient to that. Although your call.

    If you copied the folder over from a Mac, thats basically the cause of the issue In which case use an option in hekate to fix the archive bit of the /switch folder (includes subfolders).

    If you dont use hekate, and are one of the SX OS morons (sorry, not lovingly), either use a Windows PC, or create the folder using an FTP client, before copying over the files, or hang yourself while trying to follow this thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-fix-archive-bit-for-all-sd-files-and-folders.515258/ (You dont want to execute the command for the Nintendo folder - pay attention to that.)

    If you didnt copy over your rom folder from a Mac OS machine - something odd is going on (special characrters in the foldername?). As in - you have to figure it out yourself. It isnt related to fat32 or exfat though.

    I use ReiNX, i copied the folder using an usb sd card adapter on my nvidia shield, first i created the folder on the root of my sd card and then i copy the roms, its the first time it happens tho, iv never had that issue b4, i guess its because i created the folder on android, ill do it as usual and create the folder on my pc and try again.

    About the exFAT, b4 i did it i read the ReiNX site and followed that guide to hack my switch and they recomended exFAT as the preferable file system because it had less corruption, but now u tell me fat32 has less corruption... now i dont know what to do :-(

    And one last thing, iv been considering buy the SXOS license these past few days because they r the ones who has an ftp app functional, because i read that the ftpd option out there causes a lot of corruption on sd files and i didnt wanted to give it a try because of that, now u made me wonder and ask if this is true or if i should use that app to transfer my files, or maybe u know a diferent ftp app that works with the switch?


    Edit: i created the folder on my pc inside the retroarch folder and now it works, idk if its because i did it on my pc or because i did it inside the retroarch folder but now it works hahaha

    FAT32 is the proper filesystem to dodge corruption. Rei is full of shit. FTPD is perfectly functional, SX's FTP is not any better and certainly not worth paying for.

    I have some old Philips CD-i games, and their roms (both .CHD and .BIN/CUE). Any way for RetroArch to play them?
