Upgrade your SD card.

#1FR432Posted 6/3/2013 6:12:19 AM
There are tons of topics popping up with the same or similar questions about upgrading SD cards every day so I figured since amazon has a bit if a sale going right now is make this topic.
Maximum size plug and play is 32GB. A 3DS can natively use any SDHC card, or sdhc micro with a full size adapter.
A 3DS can also use SDXC cards so long as you first reformat it to FAT32 using your computer. Thst means you can pop in 64 or 128 GB in today with a theoretical maximum of 2TB.

Plain and simple, any of these cards will work in your 3DS.

Will different write speeds have any effect, say a class 4 to a class 10?

if you're hardcore you'll throw one of these bad boys into your 3DS:

My XL came with a class 4 card so I'm guessing Nintendo thinks that's fine. But class 10 definitely can't hurt. I haven't experienced any game with long loading anywhere so I can't compare, but I can say that with my class 10 card I've also not experienced any load times at all. If given the option between classes at a $5 dollar difference, I'd pick class 10 every time.

Please link a good 32 gig SD card from amazon when you can.

I'm looking to buy a 32 gig card for my 3DS.

The link in my first post has two good options. The full size or micro will work in a 3ds. Here's the link gain.

What I don't understand is the guy that buys a 16GB card and thinks he's upgrading.

For $10 more you can have twice the storage, as opposed to:

Buying that same 32GB card 18 months down the road.

Go big or go home.

Anything bigger than 32GB is not natively supported by the system hardware and is often unstable even after a reformat.

Not only that, but the price for cards larger than 32GB is exponentially higher.

It's especially noticeable when saving in MH3U. The original card would take 45+ seconds to save. When I upgraded to a C10 card it saves in less than 10 seconds now.
