    Hey all, I've installed the kernel exploit and Loadiine. I'm currently using a 4gb sd card which i'll be looking to replace with a 64 gb. Firstly, do I format the 64gb as FAT32? Second, is transferring sd cards as simple as copying and pasting the files over to the new one? Thanks!

    Drives over 32GB usually cannot be formated with FAT32 iirc but you can use EaseUS Partition Master to format it as FAT32 (and use a 64KB Cluster Size). Remember to mark the partition as primary.

    Will it still have full 64 gb available to use though?

    Yes. In EaseUS Partition Master, Delete All Partitions and then just create a new 64GB ~ one with the previous options I told you and you should be fine. :)

    So I format, then just copy paste over the files from my old sd card?

    Yes. Is there a 3DS EmuNAND on there or anything?

    Yes but a lot of people use their SD for Wii U and 3DS, and the way I told you to restore your files to the new card wouldn't transfer over the EmuNAND if you had one.

    I personally used fat32format. It works from a command prompt, but gets the job done and it's free. I use a 64GB card myself. I highly recommend you get the fastest 64GB card you can get. Some games take a long time to load otherwise.

    Currently using a 64 gb SanDisk UHS-1/Class 10 card and it is working very well.

    That's fine. I've read of people using a lot slower cards than that, and games taking so long to load, they think the Wii U has crashed.
