Are you having a hard time locating the microSD card on your 3DS XL system? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. In fact, it’s not as obvious as it seems on other systems. But, fear not, for Skyforce 9/5 is here to guide you through the process of checking your 3DS memory.
First things first, make sure your system is completely powered off. Next, place your 3DS on a soft padded surface to prevent any scratching and grab your screwdriver kit. The screws on the system are Phillips 0 or Phillips 1, so either will work. Remove the two screws located at the bottom of the system and loosen them enough so you can remove the backplate.
The screws won’t come completely out, but if you turn them enough, you’ll start hearing clicking noises. Once you hear the clicks, you can use the two little indents located on the sides to pry up the backplate. Be careful, as the backplate is very flimsy plastic and can break easily.
Once you remove the backplate, you’ll have access to the internals of the system. Here, you’ll see the battery, which is replaceable, and the microSD card slot. By default, the system comes with a 4GB microSD card by Toshiba. If you need more space, you can replace it with a higher capacity microSD card.
To remove the microSD card, simply push down on it. To put it back in, just slip it back in. When putting the backplate back on, make sure you hear four clicks, one from each corner. Align the screws and you’re all set.
In conclusion, checking the memory on your 3DS system is not as difficult as you may have thought. By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to swap out your microSD card in no time.
