I have a 128GB micro SD I am trying to use with my SD2SP2 and I keep getting errors with either file too fragmented

I have tried both exFAT and FAT32 and I am getting intermediate errors trying to select games.

What would be the best way to format my card?

It's not a formatting issue, but a signal integrity issue.

as in the SD card not fitting in the slot snug or the SD2SP2 not fitting right?

bit of an edit. It seems I only get the error when I scroll though the list of GameCube games then select a game. if I select a different device and then go back to the SD2SP2 Swiss is able to launch the game.

Very strange behavior. I am using a SanDisk Extreme plus

As always, clean your SP2 contacts, and your GC battery (does your GC keeps on time when powered off for long?), these are easy checks.
The SD2SP2's board thickness may be an issue, some have reported yet.

Curious about how much the chinese did the Red and the Green ones, anybody with a Palmer or Vernier caliper? (I have some handy, but no chinese made SD2SP2)

I cleaned the contacts and reformatted the card. The board does feel a bit thin going into the port and doesn't give me much resistance when pulling it out. It is a red one from China although I bought it from some one in the states.
