    Hey guys,

    yesterday I was trying to format my SD Card with 64k Clustersize to check if some games will work better on it. I had to format it alot of times until it got recognized by the Wii U. After I got it working I coulnd´t see any difference, so I wanted to format it again with the default clustersize.

    I used Easeus Partition Master to format it, and this is my SD Card:
    http://www.amazon.de/SanDisk-Androi...&qid=1463327022&sr=8-1&keywords=sd+card+128gb (I´m using the adapter which was included)

    After I finished everything I wanted to copy my games back onto the sd card, but now it takes way longer than it did before.
    For example Yoshi´s Wooly World took more than an hour, and New Super Mario Bros U almost 30 minutes.

    The games are working fine with loadiine, but copying files onto the card is a real pain now.


    Could someone maybe tell me what I did wrong, or how to fix my card again?

    Thanks for your help!

    Depending on how many files the game has. Say the game is 10gb and was over 5,000 files, it will take awhile. But if it's 10gb with 20 files (Bayonetta being one of them) It'll take 10 minutes at least. It's not just you.

    Yeah I also noticed that Bayonetta was copying way faster than other games with more files.
    The thing is that before I formatted my card alot of times it didn´t take that long to copy other games,too.

    I´m trying to copy Fast Racing Neo right now, and it looks like this

    Is this really normal?

    64k cluster size helped me quite a bit.

    The same for me I don't know why but some games make the SD card very slow like 10kb/s
    But wait few minutes and you will see that the transfer rate will be at 5-10mo/s
    You just need to wait I don't know why

    A lot of small files transfer slower than one of the same size.

    Unfortunately quite the opposite is happening for me. Sometimes it even shows that its not copying at all.

    I know that it takes longer if there are many smaller files instead of a big one. What I dont understand is that before I was formatting my SD Card all games were copying way faster to my card than they do now, thats why I think that I messed up the card somehow...
