    Does it matter if you use and SD of SDHC Card in the M3?

    Also is there a limit to the size of the card that can be used?

    It doesn't matter, I suggest using SDHC though. But speed does matter, even if they claim it doesn't it, it does matter.

    The size limit is 32GIGs

    Thanks.

    Is the 32GB size limit becuase that is the largest micro SD card made right now or is that a limit of the M3 or DS?

    Thanks again.

    bit of both.
    microSDHC only goes up to 32GB, and can't go any higher.
    64GB or higher will be SDXC which uses a completely different filesystem, and won't work on any flashcart.

    Common misconception, SDXC do work but only ones with the lower speeds most SDXC are released with these lower speeds and will only use the higher speeds when they become more popular.
