    Im having the feeling (I could be totally wrong) that my CIA game that i've installed isn't working properly. For the most part it is, but it seems to hang for a millisecond at some loading points. (When im about to enter a new part of the map.) I don't recall the game doing that on .3ds format. Again, i could be just inmagining it

    If games are hanging, it could just be that your SD/microSD card has a slow read/write speed.

    But i read the O3DS doesn't really benefit from SD cards with a higher read/write speed than 20 MB

    Take out SD card, connect to computer, backup everything from it to your computer and then do a disk check of SD card. There maybe some filesystem errors causing it to not read properly or something.

    DO NOT believe the words on the package.....
    write speed 80m/s doesn't mean write speed is 80mb/s......:ph34r:

    Well, it is a Class 10 card. Should count for something right?

    Nope. I have a class 10 sdxc uh1(or something like that) that's supposed to be 85-90Mb/s, but only get half that if I'm lucky.

    Nope. I have almost the exact same micro SD on both my old 3DS and my New 3DS, Sandisk Ultra 16GB (New) or 32GB (old). Both Class 10. Well installing the same .cia on both 3DSes at the same time (for local play purposes) feels like looking at Melee on a Gamecube next to Brawl on a Raspberry Pi (the New 3DS with the 16GB one being a lot slower).

    Your reader is probably not UHS compatible. Note that usually only read speed is specified, write speed is always lower.
    If you format the SD card with 64 KB cluster size, it will be a bit faster and may eliminate those millisecond delays.

    Its at 32Kb atm, will changing to 64 really make a difference?

    My SD card says "40MB/s" and in reality i'm lucky if I get more than 20.

    Well, my 3DS was caught by the CIA, they had to brainwash my 3DS, so in the end, CIA won the battle. (°ω°)

    Mbits is correct. Sorry if the caps lock caused confusion. But yes, if I'm lucky it tops out at like 7-8MB/second. It also has to do with the adapter you use. With mine, using the adapter that's in my laptop gets a bit more speed, using a USB adapter gets slower for some odd reason.

    adapters are always slower unless you get a usb3 reader its to do with quality of the reader and bus speeds.(they always slow)

    Also 85-90mbit is about 11MB in actual speed, so the card you mentioned is really bad lol its slow as hell.

    Class 10/UHS1 Means that you should get a Minimum of 10MB/s write Speed to it thats the standard so its barely meeting it

    My Class 10/UHS1 Transcend 32gb speeds are as follows

    Card Reader inbuilt

    43MB/s Read Speed 13.8MB/s Write

    USB 2 generic adapter

    22MB/s Read Speed 12mb Write

    my 64gb Kingston gets faster speeds in read/write but all the reviews i have seen on it are trying to test it in phones and usb2 readers etc so its been getting bad speed reviews
