    So I have a 64gig micro SD card ready to go for the gateway.


    Should I upgrade the 4gig Memory card that is in the 2ds itself?



    If so what size? 8gig 16gig?


    Sorry I know its been asked a million times I tried looking for answer for long time.

    Hey mech, what about updates and dlc? Does that go on the SD or the internal memory?

    It lives on the SD card and you'll need at least 1GB free on the SD card for emuNAND.

    internal, but 4gb will be plenty, dont you think?

    Well that's two different answers. Internal and SD card. :) If it is on SD card I suppose it depends on how much you are an eshopaholic and how many games you have that require updates and have DLC. I would imagine 4gb would be enough to start with 8 GB are generally less than $10.

    SD cards are so cheap that you could get a 32 gb and not even bother again and if you like cia 64 gb would be enough
