I have ordered Raspberry pi3. So I want what is the maximum compatible size of mirco sd card with PI3 ?


In Raspberry Pi 1B+, 2B, 3B is microSDHC card slot. This slot is compatible with maximum 32GB size.

@edit: According to this site there are microSDXC cards which works with microSDHC card slot and are bigger than 32GB, but not all of them works.

Thanks to Ghanima.

  • Thanks Huczu. Do you know any official documentation on this and probably other limitations? – Isaac Apr 6 '16 at 6:59

    While not official there's some additional info, e.g. which cards do work and which don't here – Ghanima Apr 6 '16 at 7:05
  • I have this one, Samsung Evo MB-MP64DA/EU - Tarjeta de memoria micro SDXC de 64 GB (UHS -I Grade 1, Clase 10, con adaptador SD), and it works in a Raspberry Pi 3 model B. – VansFannel Dec 2 '16 at 11:51
  • tested several 64GB u10 mSD cards... all woking... a few sometimes are not recognized... but after a remove/re-insert they become 'convinced' to work... – ZEE Jan 25 '18 at 19:10
  • I have a 128GB u10 mSD ready to test... (been testing it in a PC as a physical storage for VMs)... as soon as I can I will test it too with R-Pis... them 'feedback I will give!!! ;-) – ZEE Jan 25 '18 at 19:12

I'm using the SanDisk Ultra 128Gb for my RetroPie on the Pi 3


  • Same here. Can you confirm that you're able to use the entire space though? – IceMage Mar 11 at 19:23
