    I think the problem is it can't use the SDHC technology.

    You can't, the R4 only supports non-SDHC SD card. The highest you can go is 4GB if you can actually find the extremely rare non-SDHC 4GB microSD. Otherwise, you are stuck with 2GB.

    And even those 2 GB cards are hard to find nowadays. They were very common in the R4 days.

    FYI old 3DS consoles come with a 2GB card. I actually have a box full that I've been slowly giving away!

    What you could do is find someone with an old 3DS wih their original SD card and ask if they want to swap their 2GB card for an 8GB card or whatever, and do the data swap for them.

    Lol I am an idiot, ignore me.

    I had been recently playing with the vWii of my Wii U, where I had to use a 2GB card, and was thinking of that
