Just want to know what SD card you think is best for save data on the 3DS. I don't care too much about photo quality on the SD card too.

I use a 32GB SanDisk 4 Class and I absolutely love it. Regardless of size, I would stick with SanDisk. They've never let me down. My old card was a 32GB Kingston 10 class and it was CRAP!!! I don't know if it was the class or the class or the brand but it ran SO SLOW!!!!! In order to read a SwapNote it took like 15-20 seconds of loading it up and then ANOTHER 10-15 seconds just to MARK IT AS READ!!!! So the moral of the story is, buy a 32GB Class 4 SanDisk and you will be happy :)

I currently don't have enough money for a new SD card, but I may have to look into getting that one when I do!

@Gioku: Well luckily not only is it a great SD card but also quite cheap! You can grab one right now on Amazon for just 28 dollars (plus free shipping since its over 25 dollars!).

@6ch6ris6: Just get the blue 32GB Class 4 SanDisk SD card and be happy :D

Thanks &bboy2970! I don't need a new SD card yet but my memory on my current one is dwindling so probably sometime in the summer I'm gonna get a new one. Plus I needed to know how much I needed to save up and you answered that; looks like a good card! Thanks!

I think the more important question you should be asking is what brands caused problems on your 3DS?

There were a couple of brands that were reported to have caused problems on the 3DS. Unfortunately, I can't recall the brands.

I've been using a Sony brand and I've had no problems.

@bboy2970 or @TeeJay could either of you post a link to your cards on like Amazon or something? I'm also looking for a new one and was thinking about getting a Sandisk.

I am in the market for a new SD Card for my 3DS. I have the 4 GB Class 4 that came with my XL for now. But I want a higher capacity.

Doesn't the class represent how fast the card is? So wouldn't something like a class 10 have things load quicker? When I turn on my 3DS, it takes a few seconds for things to appear on the home menu that are from the SD Card. I assume if I had a faster card, that delay would be shorter?

I'm thinking about this one: http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Extreme-Class-Memory-SDSDX-016G...

I have an 8GB SanDisk SD card. It's awesome! No problems whatsoever. I have downloaded lots of stuff from the eShop (although no retail downloads) and I still have plenty of space on that sucker. xD

You're correct about the class meaning speed. That one you posted should work very well.

Go for a Class 10 if you can afford a little extra. I got a 32 GB SDHC Class 10 from Transcend. Was well worth the money.

I've heard that 64GB and 128GB can be used on 3DS's, but it had to be SDXC or be Fat32 formatted. Even then, they had a high corruptiblity rate.
Is this true?

@Knuckles
I'm not sure about failure rate, but I've seen it as well. I think it gets you around 900,000(128gb) blocks. That basically the Wii U's equivalent of 2TB, because console games obviously take up more space.

I use a Lexar 32GB class 10 SD card with a 20mb transfer rate. They go for around $30 since there seems to be a sale constantly...

I use a Class 4 (maybe) 32GB Sandisk, and I haven't had any problems with it whatsoever. However, an older Card I had been using, an 8GB C4 Lexar one, would occasionally stop being read by my 3DS mid-gaming session after I had been using it for ~9 months. That sucked when it happened.

Exactly.
