    Max number of games on External HDD With SXOS.?

    Hi all, been running a few games of HDD now with no issue, so decided to fill my 2tb drive up so they are all available.

    Only after scanning for a while and a lot of them appearing it crashes every time with an error code. 2168-0002

    Anybody know if there is a limitation to how many it can show, or is this a nintendo thing?

    i actually requested that the scan feature be eliminated on tx forums, it needs to be read from a json file which can be generated on the fly at your request, the scanning is too slow and creates the crashes, so a json file which points to whats avaiable would be amazing.

    you can convert nsp to xci so there would be roughly a thousand titles using that method at this point

    Have a 4TB drive with over 400 games, no issues here. The json file idea is good - the scan is too slow

    On my ps2 using OPL (open ps2 loader) you have an option to scan the hard drive for games every boot or disable it so it loads a pre loaded list from a previous scan. If you add or remove games that's the only time you need to rescan.

    Something similar to this either on sxos or on sx installer would be great.

    On a another note I have games that show on sxos album but not in List of xci on sx installer not sure why

    I had the same issue and was one corrupt xci. Found and deleted by watching games it scanned and when error would show. I use sx installer to launch all my games now as faster to scan (jump straight into homebrew launcher R+A on gallery.) If I actually use sxos launcher takes an age to read.

    This has happened to me also and it was a corrupt xci. I would recommend you to see how far you load xci in your hdd and then and remove all other xci that were not scanned before it crashed. You can move the games to a directory that sxos will not scan for example a new folder. Once this happens just add 1 game at a time to where sxos is scanning for games till you find the one causing issues. I have about 1tb of games so its a long process but better then starting from nothing again.
