    I thought 128 GB would be more than enough. Though actually after the emunand partition, I only have 117 to work with... Now I once again find myself in need of more space. There's still plenty I need to put on my 3DS. I'm considering getting a 256 GB micro SD, but wondering where the best place to find a legit card, and if it would even work with N3DS. Anyone have an idea?

    I saw somewhere that there is a way to get sd cards with 64gb and higher if you install a custom partition or something, but i still don't understand how 128gb isn't enough for him.

    You need to rethink what you actually need and use.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    officially (stated by nintendo) it only supports up to 32 GB, however people had been using 128gb cards...
    however i did heard 256 gb cards cause some problems to the 3ds..

    Yeah, I heard that too, but I also heard that only 32GB out of 128GB were usable.

    I'm in the same boat with my Gateway's 128gb. All my ROMs are trimmed and i am at capacity right now. Also interested in where to find 256 gb legitimate microSD's.

    I really don't see the issue here. Just move some games to an external HD and free up some space, it's not like you need 144 games on the 3DS at all times, considering 100 of those are probably shitty games anyway.
    Do you switch between 144 games every day?

    Are you deleting the .cia files from the sdmc after you install them? Dumb question, but some forget this obvious thing :P

    I really think the issue is prioritizing what you need. You don't need 100's of games on a portable all at once.
