    Using SX OS 3.0.3
    OFW 10.0.4
    No emunand, just SX OS on my SD card

    I have a 512GB FAT32 MicroSD card and I'm trying to install a 5 gig NSZ file. I trimmed the name of the NSZ file down to a few letters .nsz

    Since I can't copy the NSZ to my FAT32 microsd card, formatted 2 thumb drives as exFAT and copied the NSZ file over to them and no matter where I go in the installer, I can't see the files. I can see the test XCI file but not the NSZ. I tried a powered USB hard drive and again, the test XCI file showed up but not the NSZ.

    Oh, the USB drives were all formatted with a primary partition.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Has to be an installer that supports USB as well, I think maybe Tinfoil is the only one (and SX Installer is based on that)
    I recommend installing over USB or network with an installer like Awoo.

    A compressed nsp.
    NSZ is the most recent format of the bunch (xci, nsp, nsz). For example, a Zelda BOTW file in NSZ format will take less space than the NSP or XCI version.

    Tried using both and they will not see the NSZ file on the thumb drive. They see the XCI 'control' file so I know my thumb drive is working.

    Tried that. When I point the latest version of Tinfoil at my USB drive, it sees the XCI file but not the NSZ.

    if it doesn't work for you then there is something wrong with your setup or the nsz files

    Whenever I try to install anything with SX Installer it just sits in the queue and never installs.

    Use Tinfoil and Nut server. Very easy to install your games by USB, including NSZ format.
    If your NSZ files are not detected, it is either because they don't contain the title ID in their names, or just because they are not genuine games.

    I made a clean install to FW10.1.0 with my Switch 2 or 3 days ago (update OFW, dump Nand, create new emuNand, install back everything) and had to reinstall 150GB of NSP games by USB with Tinfoil/Nut. It was relatively quick and painless. No issue with the transfer.
