    So I know a guy, that knows a guy, who walks the dog of a guy, who’s neighbor knows a guy that can get me a SanDisk Ultra 200 GB MicoSDXC for super cheap. I’ve read people using 128 GB SD cards with their 3DS, but has anyone successfully used anything larger? Specifically I would be using it in conjunction with a (Cakes) EmuNAND setup. Logically in my head it should work, but I thought I would ask around first.

    And I realize I don’t need this, but I can get it for cheap enough that it makes me want it; I could put my entire library on it and then some! “It’s just too good of a deal to pass up” …this is the same logic my wife uses on me :wink:

    Probably 265 GB.
    I've never heard of SD cards having odd numbered GBs.


    Nvm.

    The SD is probably stolen or counterfeit.

    I also know a guy who knows a guy who knows me ex who knows a guy that slept with me who knows a girl that slept with another guy that knows a guy that works at macdonalds.

    Anyway, enough silliness.
    If you need to format it at a specific cluster size, be sure that small files can eat up space REALLY quickly.
    If the clustersize is 64kb and you've got a 1kb file on it, it takes up the entire 64kb.

    that means you will need an external power source to carry around and a bulkier 3ds

    Is there even 200gb worth of 3ds games out there?
    Also, super cheap sd cards always end in new posts here like ''help my sd card not working'' or ''my 200gb card is really a 8gb card''

    (The 200 GB SDs are actually a 128 GB and a 64 GB sticked together. No proper 256 GB exists to date:P)
