    I've formatted as they recommend on the website, in Fat32 with 64kb cluster size, yet, it doesn't seem to recognize. Is it any different than 64Gb cards?

    Edit: The was a small logical partition in the beginning of the SD card that EasyUS wasn't able to delete. Deleted in DISKPART, created new partition with all the space on teh SD card and formatted again with easyUS on FAT32

    Some devices have a limit on the size of SD card that can be used. Check it in another device to see if it's recognised. It could be the card.

    Sky3DS+ has a limit of 128GB, and accordingto gbatemp wiki, as long as it in the SDHC or SHXC up to that capacity, it can read. Fortunately the problem was with the microSD and easily solvable. It's a SanDisk Ultra and for some reason came with two logical partitions instead of one:

    - A really small logical partition, empty, in the beginning of the address space;

    - The pre-formatted partition.

    I had to delete both partitions with DISKPART on Windows, and create a new one. I guess Sky3DS+ was reading the empty partition at the beggining rather than the big one.
