Are you tired of running out of storage space on your Nintendo Switch? Do you want to know how to put games on your Switch’s SD card? Look no further, as we have got you covered with a step-by-step guide on how to do just that.

Firstly, ensure that your Switch is turned off and remove the SD card from the console. Next, insert the SD card into your computer’s SD card reader. If your computer does not have an SD card reader, you can use an external one.

Once the SD card is inserted into the computer, navigate to the Nintendo folder located in the root directory of the SD card. If it does not exist, create a new folder and name it “Nintendo.”

Within this folder, create another folder named “Switch.” This is where all game data will be stored.

Now you can download games onto your computer from either the Nintendo eShop or other third-party websites. Once downloaded, locate the game file and extract it using a program such as WinRAR or 7zip.

After extraction, copy all files associated with the game and paste them into the “Switch” folder created earlier in step 2. Ensure that all files are placed in their respective folders within “Switch.”

Once all files are transferred to the SD card, eject it from your computer and insert it back into your Nintendo Switch. Turn on your console and navigate to the home menu. The games should appear on your screen as if they were downloaded from the eShop directly.

It is important to note that some games may require a certain firmware version to play properly. Be sure to check compatibility before downloading any games onto your Switch’s SD card.

In conclusion, putting games on your Nintendo Switch’s SD card can be done easily by following these simple steps. With this knowledge at hand, you can now enjoy more games without worrying about running out of storage space on your console!
