r/NintendoSwitch's Daily Question Thread

The purpose of this thread is to avoid cluttering up the subreddit with quickly and easily answered questions and game recommendations. This thread is monitored by many helpful members of our community and questions that are asked here have a very high answer rate assuming you provide enough information for our answerers to work with.

Before asking your question...
  • Check out the wiki pages listed below. - The mod team as well a handful of community volunteers are always adding to our wiki and updating it based on what we see users asking in this thread and in other posts on the subreddit. (We're always looking for more help with the wiki. If you're interested in becoming a wiki contributor, message /u/FlapSnapple.)

  • Perform a quick Google search. - Some questions really are just a quick search away and don't need the help of our community members to answer.

  • Search the subreddit. - We know Reddit's search isn't the best and saying to use the search doesn't sound very helpful, however, a community member created a custom search tool that works much better than the standard Reddit search. It's mobile friendly, has live results as you type, searches previous DQTs and MegaThreads, previews top comments, and more! Search /r/NintendoSwitch with Narfar, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Just an FYI, I recently purchased a microSD (as in, last week) and when it arrived it was counterfeit. It was advertised as 200GB, and h2testw verified over two tests that is was actually only 30.8gb (32gb). I tested it once as fat32, and once as exfat. Same result. The card was sold by amazon.com, I made sure to check before ordering. Edit: The model ordered was a SanDisk 200GB Ultra MicroSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - 100MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card - SDSQUAR-200G-GN6MA.

Make SURE if you are purchasing a microSD for yourself or as a gift coming into this holiday season, that you test it (the preferred testing software is h2testw, which is freeware), no matter the source. Due to sheer laziness on Amazon's part, the counterfeit cards get mixed right in with the real ones. The negative side of this is that you are getting at most 1/6 of what you paid for, the card will likely be slower than typical, your game data will 100% be corrupted if you use these cards due to their overwriting nature, and it takes three hours or so to test these large cards. Finally, you'll have to ship the defective item back.
