    I want a 128gb sd card (not micro sd card) to use for my o3dsxl so that I can install cia games on it,lots and lots of them.
    I have tried 2 cards so far and BBM just crashes when I go to load it,so if anyone has a 128gb sd card working that installs cia file what brand (and any other info about it) is it.

    thanks

    how do you have the 128GB cards formatted? If they are formatted as exfat (the default) they probably won't work. I believe you need to have it formatted to FAT32

    From what I heard, you have to fill up some of the empty space on the card, the 3DS gets all weird when you have a SD card with more than 99999 free blocks on it.

    The cards were formatted in fat32 and I injected an emunand I made from a full 32gb sd card,so it wasn't really an empty card.

    I have just tried a 3rd 128gb card ,this time a micro sd card with adapter and the same issue when trying to open BBM,error occurs,so it looks like the issue may not be the cards.

    Any idea what the possible issue is ? I am formatting the cards using guiformat,could that be it ? is there any other fat32 formatters recommended ?

    thanks

    Don't go higher than 64Gb it's not worth the hassle and you won't run out of space anyways. Go for a 64GB Extreme Sandisk card from Amazon directly.

    That's good to know. Wanted a 128gb myself but will just get 2 64gb sd cards instead and inject the same emunand into both sd cards.

    Use FBI.
    There is a bug on BBM and if you have more than 99GB free it crashes.
    In the other hand, you can put some dummy trash files so you have less than 99GB free and it will work.
