    Hi .. need some help with the memory card I bought..
    I got a samsung evo 32g and a samsung evo 64g memory card for the gateway.
    the 32 for the red card and the 64 for the cia files.
    the problem is the 32 g goes fine with the 3ds but when I put in the 64g the 3ds saids that it can't read it..
    So I tried to format it but the 64g only has exFAT and NTFS
    Do I have to buy another card? or can I use it?

    Use SDFormatter to format to FAT32.

    Make sure it is not write protected. Post specific steps you are taking and specific error messages.

    I erased the program and found a different program called MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition and made it to fat 32 format but my 3ds still dosen't work.

    This is what I did

    1. opened the program and wiped it.
    2. went into format and arranged it to fat32
    3. then pressed apply

    But STILL IT DOSEN'T WORK....

    Agreed xD pretty much every device needs to be restarted at some point, especially a computer. NEVER use sleep when you're done with your computer for the day, use shut down :P

    Phones and tablets can survive with sleep for the most part, but even those needs to be restarted at some point.

    Glad you solved your problem, if you need any more support but don't feel like posting a thread here, I'd be glad to help you~

    GRRR You're asking too much! NOOB
    No, I'm not like that xD I actually enjoy helping others whenever they need help. I'm not really a true temper here, I just lurk around and read posts. I'm usually late to a post with a question, so this community is actually helpful. If you're working with Gateway, you may want to direct your questions to Maxconsole, where there's an official gateway support forum. Anyone is allowed to be a noob there :3
