    I'm using a 8gb Sandisk MicroSD and a SD adaptor, it worked just fine for quite some time, but in the last few days, every now and then, when I open my 3DS, it says there's no SD card (and I lose every progress if I was playing a game). I turn off the 3DS, remove and insert the SD again. Is this a known issue? Maybe it's a microSD compatibility problem? Formatting it will do any good? Thanks!

    most possibly issue is caused by SD adaptor. SD adaptors are known to cause such problems because of contact issues. Try to use a full size SD card.

    I switched adaptors hoping it would work, but no dice. I'm considering buying a full size SD card. But I always used MicroSDs in this and my old (burgled) 3DS without any issues.

    Is you sd card legit? I had that same type of issue with a knock off card I bought on ebay, although I was using the card in my pc and phone.

    Yes, sir, I do believe it is legit. I'm more inclined to believe I ended up damaging it a little when transfering files to PC, maybe. I'm considering buying a new one, anyway. Perhaps I'll try to format it first.

    it could also be the reader too . Try the card in a reader that you know works for sure , before you go out and buy a new card
