Topic: can't get new sd card to work

Posts 1 to 4 of 4


I recently bought a new 16gb SanDisk Ultra sd card. After formatting it using the SD formatting program, and copying all the data from the old 4gb Lexar card to the new one, my 3ds only reads the new card SOME of the time. Everytime I try to download a game from the e-shop, It starts the download, then after about 10 seconds, I get an error code. When I return back to the home screen and check system memory, it says no sd card present. If I turn off, and turn back on the system, it will read the sd card until I try to do something again. Could it be the card itself, or is it something I am doing wrong? I've tried reformatting 4 or 5 times now and keep getting the same results. Thanks in advance for any help!



Could be a defective card, can you exchange it for a new one?

I bought it at Best Buy, so I assume I could exchange it. I know SanDisk is a pretty reliable brand so that's why I'm trying to figure out if it's something I'm doing wrong, but I've tried a few different things, and keep getting the same results. I'll try to exchange the card tomorrow and see what happens.



Hope it works out. I have a 4gb mirco SD card so i dont if that helps but it works
