    Hello everyone
    I hope that this is the place for advice.
    I have successfully managed to get backup copies of games to work on my Nintendo switch.
    But the only problem is, if i install too many games the card corrupts and more and more games corrupt and its easier to just wipe it and start again.
    Up until now i have been borrowing a laptop from a friend to install games through usb as i can only find quork that works consistantly but it requires a 64 bit operating system. Well my laptop is 32 bit with no hope of upgrading (unfortunately only a bery old netbook lol) anybody recommend a way to install games through usb using windows 7 32 bit?
    Thanks in advance

    I ran into that same kind of problem back in the beginning of 3ds stuff where I needed newer java that XP didn't support and there is really nothing u can do is wait and see how u can get newer hardware that can support 64-bit OS

    Looks like I'm stuck with installing directly to micro sd card, which is slow and unstable i have thought about ftp servers but they look really complicated

    Running an ftp server isn't complicated at all, you just need to install ftpd on your switch and install the FireZilla client on your pc (or some ftp client on your phone) then you connect to your Switch with the informations displayed on the screen (make sure tu use the correct port too) and you'll be good to go.
    Just to mention tho, if you don't have a really good connection, (10 MB/s in upload, yes Bytes not bits) uploading to the SD will be slower than just transferring with a pc. Again it depends on your hardware, I recommend transferring a "lightweight" file (something like 100 MB) with the ftp and with the pc to have an idea of the transfer rates.
    And just another information, if you see an error on the transfer, delete the file (if there's one) which is corrupted and never attempt to transfer something if you're not sure that it should go there (just like if you were transferring with a pc) unless you're sure that it's harmless.

    ns-usbloader, works totally fine since it's Java.

    Can't seem to get ftp to work on my laptop not sure why but from what I can see usb is going to be a much faster way of installing games, but thank you for trying

    Just use "Awoo-installer". Just use the "Tinfoil" option for it.
