    Sooooooo yeah... I tried to turn on my 2DS, and it brings me to the "Select a language" screen. It still won't boot w/o an SD card, either, so I'm not sure what's going on. I'm not yet willing to go through with the setup process, because I don't want to mess anything else up. The last thing I did on the system before I just powered it on was try and run Uncart on a DS Lite game. Help would be greatly appreciated as I don't want to lose my saves. Thanks!

    • It's running AuReiNAND 5.1 and 10.7
    • I have the same AuReiNAND settings (and the same exact programs) on my friend's 3DSXL
    • I can still access Decrypt9, Uncart, AuReiNAND CFW settings, and EmuNAND9

    No, I access HBL via the home menu (on CFW). I usually boot straight into my SysNAND with the CFW (AuRei 5.1)

    I personally don't know if Uncart works on DSL games but my guess would be that there was a format done to the 3ds. Just try continuing through the Select a language screen. Your cias are installed on your sd card.

    Ok, give me a sec, I'll post back the results.

    Ok, so it's good news. Everything's fine, luckily. Lesson learned - don't try to make a .3ds file out of a DS Lite game. Thanks!

    Also, on a side note, is your SD card worth the money? I was thinking about purchasing this or this SD card, as it's my goal to dump my entire GBA/DS/Atari/3DS game collection to one awesome system. Thanks!

    Most people report that their system runs slower than it should on SD cards 64GB and above. I recommend at the most going with 64, and the recommended size by Nintendo is 32GB.

    Thanks. How bad is your 256GB one? Also, I don't think 64GB is enough. I'll ask around Reddit and maybe here to get some more insight, but so far I read that formatting it to FAT-32 helps, and the only lag is via the home menu (slightly slower to launch)

    64gb is more than enough for most people. I have a 64gb and even with 5-6 games installed to it (I forget how many lol), I've barely made a dent into it. I haven't even beaten all of them yet. Unless you're more of a "install now, play all 30+ games later" kind of person, you should be ok and yeah. You do need it to be formatted to fat32.

    Well I didn't buy it actually, got it from a Nintendo Event in the city where you play tournaments using their own N3DS'es. One of them apparently had a 256GB sd card :P
    It runs slightly slower than my Lexar 32GB one.

    I don't have one. That's why I said "other people have reported"

    That's good to know! I don't want to run out of space, but a lowered performance on an already weak system may not be worth it.

    Sorry, for a sec I thought I was replying to axewfious.

    It runs slightly slower, but I'm also using this sd card for my Canon.
    You should probably get the 128GB one. I have around 51 games(excluding VCs) on my card and the Nintendo 3DS folder takes up barely 45gb

    I'm more of an "install now, play all 30+ games later" kind of person. I'd rather be prepared if I want to play a game if I forget to bring the cartridge. I mean, 64GB wouldn't be awful, it's just that I'd also want some free space for the new 3DS games I'd get.

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Ok, I'd probably get the 128 just due to the pricing. I can recall some people from /r/wiihacks purchasing 4TB external hard drives for their collections. Also, I just got a reply on Reddit that claims I'll have issues with FBI and .cia files, so maybe 64 then?

    I don't know of any issues as I stopped using FBI alongside my old 32GB card. But I haven't had any using BBM

    It was suggested to me on Reddit to get a Flashcart for DSL games (which I have a lot of), and settle with 64 :/. At least it's confirmed to work.
