    Hello everyone, my friend gave me this micro sd card
    https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Ultra-200GB-Micro-SDSDQUAN-200G-G4A/dp/B00V62XBQQ
    and i want to use it on my n3ds xl, right now im using luma3ds and 64 gb micro sd card, if i format 200 gb card as fat32 and copy everything from my old card, will it works ?
    i heard about huge size sd cards makes 3ds slow, is it correct ?
    thanks for all helping :)

    Yes they do make the system slow. I'm using a 128 gb card in my o3DS XL, and it takes about 15 seconds for everything to load.

    Plus, you have that built in limit of 300 games on the home menu, so why bother?

    Non sequitur, Luma can run sysnand or emunand at your choice

    If you're using sysnand, yes, copying all files on the FAT32 partition will be enough to change cards

    When you format your card, choose cluster size 64KB for more speed. Be warned that if you intend to use TWLoader, it doesn't play nice with that though.

    As long as you copy your Nintendo 3DS folder, you'll keep your saves.
