    the amount is 40gb 32gb and lower will be fat 32

    he cant try formatting it again he did state it was FAT32, could be a dodgy card even if read in windows what brand is it and where did you get it from?

    i never trust Windows to Format Flash media (SD Cards anyways) and rely on the SD Formatter tool except when using an Imaging Tool for USB Boot images or burning a new image to one for a RaspberryPi.

    Already formated at Fat32 with SDFormatter, MinitoolPartition and partition Magic, none recognize my o3ds :<

    PS: i already used the same MicroSD in a raspberry Pï, my old Smartphone and in a Camera all of them recognize and work fine, any ideas why my O3ds doesn't recognize?

    That's strange... my 8GB card didn't work either with my ODS and I formated to FAT32. It works fine now.

    I have found that the 3DS is picky about SD cards, and so is my Surface. My desktop might read it but my Surface and 3DS won't. You might also try a different adapter. That could be the culprit. I had a SanDisk micro SD in a Kensington adapter and my 3DS wouldn't read it although my PC did. Put in a PNY adapter and 3DS reads it fine.

    It has to be an SDHC adapter that you're using, as well.

    I had a similar issue when upgrading to 32GB, was able to overcome it by formatting using the official SD formatting utility 4.0

    HI ty for yours answers, i take a better look to my Micro SD Card:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I read these information in the sdcard.org

    [​IMG]

    My Micro SD card it's a Class10 but also a UHS 1, it's not a fake one, already tested with h2testw (100% real), so i guess my O3ds doesn't support UHS speed class? (i used 4 MicroSd Adapter to test if my currently used was bad, but none works on my O3DS, but all of them work fine in my other stuff). anyone knows if the 3DS 10.3 doesn't recognize MicroSD(Adapted) with a Class10 - UHS1 speed?

    thats a very weird brand of micro sd lol.
    h2test means nothing all it does is test speeds anyhow also what speeds you getting??

    3DS supports UHS1 because its also Class (10)
    Still weird your not getting reads in 3DS could be the strange branding
