    I just bought a New 3ds Xl and I switched the micro Sd card with my SanDisc Ultra 16 gb. But everytime I start up my 3ds, it says that the micro Sd can´t be used. Can someone help me?

    Change to other trusted genuine memory cards. If the cards won't work you could send your new 3ds to manufacturer for warranty.

    If you are on PC I would recommend trying a low level format with either, the HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool, the SD Formatter 4.0, or a similar program that can partition and perform a low level wipe and then formatting it in your 3DS .

    my dad works for nintendo.
    glad it fixed, probably it was formated with ntfs or soemthing


    for the record, does a (N)3ds works with a EXFAT formatted card?
