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 (models)?
I'm using N3DSXL.
Thank you in advance.

n3ds is sdhc compatible, so any micro sd up to 32gb - 64gb and bigger are sdXC.

@premko1 mine 128 and 256 GB cards are sdHC and I even formatted them to FAT32. But 128 one works at N3DSXL until is almost 8 GB used and 256 until around 3 GB. And I heard some people here using 512 GB ones, but they never mentioned the model.

@SViper
Beware - these are cheap chineese knock-offs - 128gb is really 8 or something.
128gb CAN`T be a sdhc !!!

@premko1 I can use them fully at everywhere else like PC, so.

Just checked out that SanDisk sells couple 64 GB SDHC Mirco, but only Extreme model type. Would that kinda card work on N3DSXL formatted right format fully?

As far as i know, it WON`T work !!!
Check sdcard.org and trust me
I`m pretty sure U CAN`t fully use them !!! Even on PC !!!

@premko1 Why you so sure, Nintendo included SanDisk SDHC extreme models like 16/32 under they list, so why you not even trust SanDisk?

@SViper
BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT ORIGINAL SANDISK BUT KNOCK-OFFS !!
Nintendo included models UP TO 32gb !!!

@premko1 Okay, then 32 GB cheap Micro SD would work fully?

Cheap but solid - something like Kingston or buy a cheap REAL sandisk - class 4 is ok.

@premko1 what about super cheap brandless 32 GB cards?

@SViper
Sorry to keep U waiting
Brandless = very dangerous. They may be super cheap but are also super s.itty ones. Buy some branded (known) one !!! They really aren`t that expensive. And ask yourself - do U really need 32gb one ? (16gb isn`t enough ? )

@premko1 Roger that.
I calculated how much currently my wanted games would take space (14,34 GB at maximum possibility) and theoretically it should be enough, but I better still be buying 32 GB one. Because there are other games that already have some interest in them, so. Actually I already found Kingston 32GB Micro SDHC Class 10 + SD adapter for only 10,03€ plus 3,5€ for delivery, so cool.

@SViper
Good choice!!!
After formatting its not 16gb or 32 gb - its always ab. 2 or 4gb less (1mb is 1024kb x 16000= ...etc.).
Buy 32gb - U won`t be dissapointet.

@premko1 Yeah, I know about 32 GB, 16 GB and so goes on are saying, because any memory saving device takes some of that space for their system.

@premko1 What about this one A-Data 32GB Micro SDHC Premier UHS-I Class 10 it cost 5,29€ plus 3,5€ delivery?
