    I'm talking Micro or Regular SD, I'm trying to avoid counterfeit SD cards.

    As an example, I found a double microSD 32GB that's like 20$, and it sounds fishy.
    (I'm not sure if I can send links, but it's on the Walmart website.)

    Can anyone send me 16-64GB MicroSD/SD Cards that are not counterfeit that I could purchase online, or can anyone tell me if walmart SD cards are fake or not at the very least?

    Thanks in advance.

    (I wont be able to answer for a bit after I post this, sorry)

    If you were talking about eBay or something on the Amazon Marketplace, that would be one thing. But Wal-Mart? Just take the cards home, test them with h2testw, and then return them if they don't work.

    I cant use h2testw, I dont have a computer.
    I was looking on the walmart site for prices bc I'm going there tommorow for food.

    The reason I said it was fishy is because every time I try to find them personally, I keep finding 32GB ones for like 20$ a piece, and some for like 10$ a peice, and I really dont get the difference between them.

    No matter where you get a card from, you should probably find a way to run h2testw. You're taking a big chance otherwise.

    Don't even try to use eBay or aliexpress for something like this. Only buy from confirmed official sellers of these cards. Especially since they're all so cheap these days you never know what's real or fake unless it's from the official seller. The first links posted in this thread are really good. It's also making me remember when micro SD cards were extremely expensive. I paid much more than what they're going for now.

    Like I said, no one here can tell you for sure one way or another. If you can't run h2testw, then you are taking your chances.

    ETA: Are you going to use these with a hacked 3DS? Because without a computer, godmode9 is the only way to format those.

    I only trust Samsung MicroSDs. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for.

    Of course you know that even if a card says Samsung on it, it could potentially be counterfeit.

    In that case you can run F3X.
    https://3ds.hacks.guide/f3x-(mac)

    ...Or that's the theory, at least. Apparently the F3X GUI is no longer maintained and crashes under the latest versions of OS X. But you can still use the command-line version (F3).

    Then you should be able to run Windows, via VMWare, Parallels, or bootcamp.

    Usually Amazon will have a deal of the day for SanDisk SD cards. I would say that's a good time to buy one not only because of the price but because they are going to be legit.
