    Hey everyone.
    So i went ahead last week and successfully installed Luma 3DS and a9lh on my old 3DS XL. So far its gone great however ive soon filled up my 8gb micro sd card. Now i have just brought a 32gb micro sd and copied everything across to it.
    Now the issue is its VERY slow to do most things, i expected a slight slow down but even in freeshop it takes a minute just to install the ticket TMD for the games alone, also with super mario maker, it gets stuck on creating save data file.
    Should i of done anything to prepare my card other than a format?

    Please check your card with h2testw and tell us the results. Your card is most likely fake. Don't buy flash cards from eBay.
