    Hey, I'm new here and wasn't really sure where to ask this so I'm asking it here. Currently I am using a 64Gb MicroSDXC from Samsung. The way I got it to work was by formatting it to fat32 even though windows only allows exfat with this MicroSD through a special partition program. I was wondering if this little trick worked with 128Gb cards and even possibly the new 512Gb cards. I have done the same thing with my phone even though it only claims to support up to 32Gb. It would be really nice if I could but a 512Gb card and stick it in my NDSL and DSi. Also I ment cards in the title not card's

    I'm going to import all of my music. I just recently got both my NDSL and DSi and they have pretty much replaced my phone. So I'm going to add all 100Gb of music and then a ton of books. Maybe even use it as a meme archive.

    Actually there are over 7000+ DS games, if you were to have all these games in a folder and you view the properties, it would be well over 500GB+. The only way to crunch that down would be to compress it by using 7zip or something along the lines. Flashcarts can't read games in zip already so needless to say if you plan to have an entire DS library on one card, 512GB or more is needed. There really isn't a reason to have that many games on one cartridge anyways, personally I don't need it but it would be kinda cool to have something like that ready an available. Every DS game in the world on one cartridge lol.

    Just untrimmed, trimmed I am sure is much less, even so trimming 7000+ is a total waste of time, you not only have to have those 7000+ games but you have to trim each one too, even with an automated trimming program it would take at least a night or so.
