    Can I use a 64gb micro and 128gb sd for games etc or is this limited to 32 only?

    What's the recommended config?


    Thanks

    Yes 64 and 128 is ok? Is there any benefit of having a larger Micro card or just have a large sd instead for games?

    What's the benefit of using a 64 GB + sd card ?Aside from having more storage... ?I mean can't you just delete games over and over ?

    The ability to have your entire collection on the 3DS at any one time i imagine.

    64gb Micro SD cards are not really that expensive now, its worth spedning a few £ more to double your storage.

    Does the 3DS support ExFat now? Last I tried it didn't.

    Use exFAT on the 128GB microSD card in the Gateway, and FAT32 on the 3DS's 64GB internal SD card.

    Is 64 the largest we can use for the sd then but can go larger on the micro? Do roms sit on the micro sd or the sd normally?

    He'll have to use a custom utility to format it then, because Windows usually refuses to format anything bigger than 32GB as FAT32.

    Well yeah, the Panasonic SD formatter, or any non-Windows partitioning software can do it, even Gparted.
