Make sure that the logo on the microSD card is facing you, then insert it until you hear a click.

Turn the console off before removing the microSD card, then push the card in until it pops up and remove it.

If the microSD card runs out of free space

If you run out of free space on your microSD card, you can transfer the data to a higher-capacity microSD card using a computer.

You can also use two microSD cards at the same time without transferring any data, but please be aware that you won't be able to consolidate data saved in this way onto one microSD card at a later date.
