    I just got a free 128 Sandisk Ultra A1 card from my friend and I intend to use it on my N3ds XL. I read a lot of forum and there were a lot of different opinions on 32kb vs 64kb clusters and I'm very confused right now. I don't mind if there is a slow down in the menu when booting the device. But I do mind slow down in games. So give me a final verdict, 32kb or 64kb cluster?



    And which software is safe to use for formatting to FAT32?

    Okay, thank you. I got the gist on how to do the transfer and everything. One question, in the post you mentioned 200gb go for 64kb. Does this means my 128gb go for that as well or 32kb?

    See the spoiler, References regarding GBA VC graphical glitch bug, for additional reading about matching 64 KB cluster size to card capacity requirement / pre-check testing.
