    Hello all and all, I'm looking the right way to format my sdcard 128 go sdxc class 10 fat 32 with Windows 7, how to be accepted by the latest update of my 3DSXL. A few months ago because I find a tutorial that walk and I could find on the net even with Google because when I ask a complex question that search engine has its limits

    Waiting to hear from you, soon cordially

    usually people type GigaByte, since the french are the only ones to call it "GigaOctet" (as far i know)

    Euh....
    If I'm not mistaken, you can just format it with FAT32.
    But do you really need 128GB?

    Try h2format, that tool can format your 128GB SD in FAT32.

    You could also try with a Partitioning Software like PARAGON'S PARTITION MANAGER. I'm sure I've used it in the past to force FAT32 on some devices.

    You have insufficient posts to view user location.
    Formatting anything with FAT32 above 32GB requires custom format tools. Here are 2 custom format tools you can use.

    http://filetrip.net/ps3-downloads/tools-utilities/download-fat32format-105-f22905.html

    http://filetrip.net/ps3-downloads/tools-utilities/download-fat32formatter-10-f22979.html

    you can format upto 2TB, that is the maximum size possible. FAT32 isn't capable of dealing with anything more than that. You run into things that will eventually corrupt the address table in FAT32, making file recovery hard to deal with.

    Windows 7 format tool automatically removes the FAT32 option on anything that has a capacity higher than 32GB.
