    Hey,

    I have 2x 32GB microsd cards. One for my 3DS and one for the gateway card.

    My question is, do 64GB SDXC work on both? I remember reading that if you use a 64GB card it will work, but only the first 32GB will be available - now that was old posts on a forum so it could be wrong now.

    You have to format the card to FAT32, but I have a 128gb in both my N3DS and N3DS XL with no issues.

    Ah right thank you both for the reply.

    I think for now I will stick to having a 64GB in my gateway card :)
