    hey guys, I purchased an M3DSreal and it's awesome, but I've had some problems with it. i have 2 micro SD cards and both have given me some issues. I have a sandisk 2 gb made in taiwan and kingston 1 gb sd-co1g from Taiwan. the problems I'm having are miniscule but my biggest issue is that zelda phantom hourglass freezes after I get a specific Chest.

    If you guys can help me, can you guys tell me which microSD card is the best? I've heard good things about the ones from japan but I can't seem to find any.

    also both of my cards are formatted at fat32. I'm also new to the whole m3 scene but I've been reading up on it for quite some time. if you guys can help me out it would be great. thank you =]

    Generally its good to have your SD card formatted to FAT 16, though I have heard of FAT 32 working just fine. I have a Taiwanese Kingston that is formatted to FAT 16 and I've never once had a problem. *knock on wood*

    For Zelda do you have soft reset turned off? Apparently some users have had difficulties with Zelda and soft rest turned on. Also, make sure you you are using the latest firmware.

    Just to follow up for the community (so we learn):

    What worked? The formatting to FAT 16, the turning off the soft reset, or both in combination?
