Here's the deal.

I'm using a 200gb microSD in both my 3DS, and a 512gb SD in my Wii U.

3DS will recognize it no problem, but you can't have more than 100gb free space on it (Think it's 100? Might be 90gb...) or it won't recognize the data.

PLAYING
Splatoon 2 ..... MHXX ..... Mario Kingdom Battle..... Arms

AWAITING
Fire Emblem [Switch] ..... Metroid Prime 4 [Switch] ..... Mario Odyssey [Switch] ..... Xenoblade 2 [Switch] ..... MH World [X1X] ..... Metroid Samus Returns [3DS] ..... Ni No Kuni 2 [PS4]

Well he's currently playing Pokemon on a 128gb card that is freshly formatted, so this seems like some malarkey.

It wasn't malarkey, because I have that 256 GB card, but now that card will only collect dusts on bookcase.

Looks like that 128 GB card can get past 8 GB, because at around 8 GB used space errors are back. And even making my Alpha Sapphire save corrupt when you try save sometimes. Both cards are brand new, so what's the damn problem. Anyone know how to fix that? Because I don't want buy new one when I have already. Plus feels like this could happen with those cards they listed in support.

You can get as much anecdotal evidence of how things work for others as you want, but the only fact of the matter is that cards above 32GB are not supported. Which means that the only way you can be sure that a memory card will work is if its capacity does not exceed 32GB. Sucks, but that's all we know for sure, so that's the way it is.

N3DS/XL doesn't support 64GB+ cards not because of size, but because they being formatted exFAT not FAT32 format. So Nintendo says that N3DS/XL supports 32GB and less, because of format. So that makes me say that most likely the problem where your Nintendo downloads starts error when certain amount of space is used. So most likely everything depends on how well it was made and how much card was physically used. So now I try my phone's 64GB card, because that one cost more then 128GB and 256GB cards I bought, because my phone's cards has brand while other 2 is brandless.

Hi,
Just wanted to know if any 32 GB cards is alright, because the ones listed in Nintendo is way to expansive?
Is there list of 64+ GB cards that would fully work formatted in N3DS/XL?
Thank you in advance.
