    I've never encountered a mai dump that wouldn't install. what happens when u dump ur games? the game should be there in the decryption list. I ripped all three of my games and installed them along with tales of hearts r dlc and patches without issue.

    I've installed world of final fantasy which may be the largest game, so large in fact that they couldn't fit the audio on the cart so it's downloadable. never had any issue. what happens when u install? an error? u might try updating maidump tool with its built in updater. that's the first thing u should rule out.

    It's pretty difficult to help when you're being extremely vague and unspecific.

    What do the errors actually say? How big is your memory card? How big are the games you're trying? Remember that VPK games require double the space unless you use VPK shrink, so if you're trying to install a 3GB VPK and you only have 4GB of space it won't work.

    What are you putting in the mai folder, exactly? Are you putting the folder with the games title ID in ux0:/mai? It should look something similar like this: ux0:/mai/PCSE00934
