    the 8gb microsdhc that came with my dstwo has corrupted 3 times now in less than a week, so i think its a defective card, im not going to get a warranty replacement because the place i got it from took AGES to arrive, i decided to get a bigger, class 10 card as a replacement, i dont see any reason why it wouldnt, but will this card work on my dstwo on a 3ds

    1. I know I don't don't need class 10 but I want to do anything I can to stop it corrupting again, and it will be fast.
    2. I live in the uk so newegg isnt an option.

    I had a look online and saw some good stuff about this card, will it work or not

    It's a good card but it's highly overkill. But since the price is good, why not.
    Normally it would not be worth it since those Ultra cards can be pretty pricy.

    Ok good :) according to amazon the 16gb and 32gb versions of this card are microsdxc so if i format the card from exfat to fat32 to make it work with the dstwo, will I lose any performance

    The DS's slot-1 is a limit, going from a Class-4 to a Class-10 is unlikely to net you any visible speed increases since the flash cart can only feed data to the DS at up to a certain rate anyways. And FAT32 is what they use anyways.

    As far as the formatting goes, it should work.
