    The .3ds file is too large to fit on an SD card, it's over 4gb. What can be done with this?

    Get a bigger sd card. Or if its a 3ds rom, there are some tools that remove the update partition and can shrink the rom. But its only by a small percentage.

    You can either use the Gateway Rom Splitter or format the microSD card to exFAT.

    I assumed he was trying to use a 4gig sd card. I was thinking "what the hell would that do?" lol

    Yeah, it's not too clear I guess it could be interpreted both ways. But whenever I see 4GB my mind immediately goes to FAT32.
