Using an SD Card

Before you can load additional games into the Vega, you need a compatible micro SD card. Find out more with this short guide.

The Vega supports Standard-Capacity (SDSC) and High-Capacity (SDHC) micro SD cards, which are the smallest form-factor of SD card available, and must be formatted with the FAT32 filesystem.

eXtended Capacity (SDXC) cards are not supported, as they use Microsoft’s proprietary exFAT filesystem. See Secure Digital cards for full details.

Organising files on the SD card

Game files should be organised into folders on the SD card. There is a limit to the number of files that can be stored on an SD card without placing them in folders, which is around 250 files.

Organising game files into folders makes them easier to access, and increases the speed at which the Vega can read them and build the game menu.

For example, folders could be created for each game publisher, or genre. You might decide to create a folder for each letter of the alphabet, but since the Vega groups game titles alphabetically, doing so could create one very long menu which would be slow to navigate, so this approach is not recommended.
