    Hi,

    since my Sandisk Ultra seems to hate me, I want to switch brands. I'd need 64GB - can anyone recommend a good microSD brand besides Sandisk Ultra, that's fast when installing cia? Thanks!

    The 3ds can only go so fast with cards, if you also use your card in your workstation I would get this:

    It is usually 19.99 but higher ATM.

    I see write rates usually around 50-80 megabytes per second copying .3ds files over to mine.

    The problem is that my Sandisk Ultra is making problems and slows down to 20kb/s writing speed after it wrote several 100mb on my 3ds. It worked fine at the beginning and reformatting didn't really solve it, only for some weeks and now it's back. That's why I'd like to switch brands or at least the model.

    The 3DS can't even use UHSI speeds, so any class 10 card will be enough, regarding speed.

    I'm getting a full refund on my Sandisk Ultra, so I'll try a Sandisk Extreme now. Maybe that fixes my issue, really annoying when a NAND backup takes two hours.
