    How do I do this? What program should I need from Gateway?

    It should be on Gateway's site if you can access it, but the easiest thing to do is just format the card to exFAT and not worry about all that.

    Wait, does Gateway actually work with exFAT? I thought you had to pay Microsoft big bucks to even get documentation on HOW to support that filesystem.

    There are open source libraries supporting it, although the original code is indeed proprietary and patented.

    use ExFAT system on your SD card it's better, no need to split games

    But what about multirom? I would like to keep 4gb+ roms on sd card.

    Are programs like hjsplit fine?

    That's the point - you don't need to split 4GB+ games when using exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table).
