Apologies if this question's been posted before.

I have sold my 3ds and I would like to format the sd card via pc for the new owner. What file system do I select when formatting. FAT?, FAT32?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

FAT32 is probably necessary if the card is larger than 2GB. The 3DS reads both just fine.

The FATter the SD card, the better.

Sorry for the bad joke.

@Zafyron - LOL, I see corn fields all over the place (corny joke....)

@1UP - Since it's a 2GB card, I just went with FAT. I assumed everything is well, since I haven't heard any negative feedback from the person who bought the 3DS from me. Thanks for the feedback.
