Getting Error While Launching Dump

A Question for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Question Answered but Unsolved

This Question has been answered but no solution has been chosen. You can still post your own answer to help the submitter.

While the game does dump onto the mini SD, it crashes while giving the "This software was closed because of an error" message. The game launches to the switch loading screen but crashes to the message mentioned. 

I've tried both ways to dump. One method halts the download progress at 25% while the other dump completes and gives a hash that does not match with any versions. I've been doing this a couple times now with a legitimate copy (purchased on the eShop and the latest update is also installed). I'll try to see what other issues there could be but I would appreciate any insight into what could cause these issues? Are there any fixes to get a correct dump going? I'll add more details about the problem if necessary.

    What is your SD card formatted to? FAT32 or exFAT?

    Which dump option are you choosing? It's recommended that you acquire a game dump that's split, as FAT32 is the preferred file format to be using for your Micro SD Card.

    But if it helps, my copy of Smash Ultimate is retail.

    Hi! I figured out the answer after so much testing.

    It was the SD card I was using in general. Even with deleting everything and adding new files, the problem persisted. I gave in and I just used another mini SD. I honestly have no idea what causes some mini SDs to not work with dumps but beware. But it works perfectly now. 

    Thank you to the individuals who helped me! I appreciate your efforts!
