    Link deleted temporarily due to me being a new member. They're from Costco and they are Sandisk, 64 GB, micro SD with adapters. If needed I can pm the link.

    I bought these micro SD cards recently for my 3DS. However, the 3DS can't seem to recognize the cards. My PC, Switch, and Samsung tablet work fine but my 3DS refuses to, which is one of the reasons I got these. Anybody have any idea why?

    Notes: I've tried formatting the card to exFat and it still fails. My regular SD card that came with the 3DS works properly. I'm going to try other SD cards if I can find some in my house but the goal is for this one to work.

    The card should be formated to fat32 with 32kb clusters for the 3ds

    This. Also, GodMode9 can format the card for you. Easypeazy

    I found some software on Windows to do it for me. GM9 couldn't detect the card but after formatting it works!
