SD card question.

#1ZanimarPosted 2/9/2013 9:59:06 AM
Heya, was just wondering if there was a size limit on how big of an SD card that can be used for the 3DS? I'm curious as I see a 128 GB card I'm tempted to get, but don't wanna waste money on it if the 3DS won't be able to read it.

I think 32GB... I don't know if it supports SDXC, but if it does, then it can go beyond 32GB.

trust me, you absolutely will not fill up that 128gb card for at least 2 years unless you plan on going full digital, but even then.... i don't know, personally i wouldn't go quite that large until next year at the earliest.

It supports out-of-the-box SD Cards up to 32GB. If you want to use larger SD Cards, you will need to format them to FAT32.

I think 128GB is rather excessive. A 64GB card should do you fine, but as mentioned, you'll need to format it to FAT32 first (they come as exFAT I believe).

Ack, Gamefox done messed me up. Originally said that I'll stick with a 32 GB since it's natively supported and won't fiddle with getting a 64 and formatting it as knowing my luck I'll mess it up some how.

Anyway, would this be a good card for my 3DS to last me a while?

Personally I'd get this myself... I don't honestly know if that speed difference in the SanDisk would actually be beneficial on the 3DS. I've always used standard Class 10 cards and they've been plenty fast.

Ah well I'm just use to going Amazon for most of my purchases since I started using it to get all the games that my local Wal-mart doesn't sell (which is usually most if not all of them).

If speed really isn't an issue, then I'll look into getting that one you linked, or even just going to my local Radio Shack, or Wal-Mart and see if they have similar price or even cheaper. :)

Yeah I can't say for certain but I've never read that there's a benefit.
