I have the nsz files in a external hard drive portable connected to the dock
the nsz files are in the root folder
according with sx installer, in "File Browser" there is no nsz folder path
there path by default for updates, dlc, etc; like usbhdd:/dlc etc.. so i put the nsz in the root of the external hdd
I see the nsz titles in "New Games"
When I try to install any, i got this message:
[Error
Install failed, see console for more details]
Then in the Console Log:
"Cloud not find cmnt!
Install failed, looking for mirror..."

Until that point I was .. ee ok, should be normal because there is no nsz path in the File Browser Tab

After that, manually in "File Browser" I enter to the "usbhdd:/" root and choose the same nsz, press Install and the nsz start the installation without problem
Same problem and solution for updates

Now my question.. this is normal? or I'm doing something wrong? I mean not able to install the nsz from the "New Games" tab and only manually going to the "usbhdd:/" in the "File Browser" Tab

Keep the nsz's on the root of your external device.
The "install failed" error happens sometimes on the very first install after opening the app each time.
If you get an install failed error, go to the Queue section on the left side and clear it out. Then go back to New Games/New Updates/New DLC and reinstall, and it will work.

No need to use the file browser, by the way.

If you cannot find a solution for SX Installer, Tinfoil + Nut server are working well to install NSZ files through USB or FTP.

I tried to see that format, but I had some trouble trying to do the same you did. As that format is almosst the same size of the nsp, and by the way I prefer XCI because I can run directly from the Hd or install it if I want, there was no use to fight for NSZ.

try rename the files to something simple like just the name of the game without any special characters

SX installer doesn't like special characters sometimes. For example, the é in Pokémon needs to be changed to a regular e. Luigi's renamed to Luigis, Link's renamed to Links, ect ect.

Keep the title ID, regions, and version numbers in brackets though.
