    Do I need 2 microsd cards one for each card or can I use the same one? And what size does the one for the setup need? Thanks.

    Best to have 2

    Unless you install the blue card put on gateway mode and then format it to run a game on the red card - As long as you dont play a legit 3ds game or a ds game you should be alright with 1.

    You can use 1 but 2 would be better for convienience. Also, roms range in size from 256mb to 8gb but most games are 2gb or less. Get an 8gb card.

    At the moment, a 4GB MicroSD will work fine for every game released up to date (if you use the ROm Trimmer Tool). If you already have one, I recommend you not to buy more until we know if MultiROM will be supported on GW 2.0.

    I'm getting a 16GB MicroSD for now (because it comes with reader and SD extender). However, I'll only buy my second MicroSD when MultiROM is available.
