    I want to buy a 64gb (or 128gb) Sd card for my new nintendo 3ds XL.

    however on google i read some conflicting info about which cards work and do not work (properly)

    Are there an problems with certain sd cards? If so, what is my best option?

    At the moment i am looking at a samsung micro sdXC evo+ 64/128 gb class 10.

    As long as its not fake and formatted to FAT32 it should be ok.

    In your basement Dick Size: 5 meters.
    Either they have a bad sd card reader or just a cheap sd card that broke.
    You just have to format it to FAT32 and you should be good to go.

    might be a pain in the wallet honestly, but stick to them brands. those are the ones nintendo priotitizes.

    but this dosent mean lesser known ones wont work, just big ones you know are gonna work.good rule of thumb is to never buy from ebay though

    Sandisk/samsung are proper brands for the job?

    can vouch for both, but go sandisk because its cheaper then samsung.
    but if your going 128gb, you may have problems with fbi detecting the extra space. there is also a slowdown, but its so miniscule you wont notice. if your sticking eith regular freeshop, then you can just ignore this though

    I personally haven't even had a problem using cheap MicroCenter branded SD cards on either my o3DS or my n3DS XL.
