    According to the review on this site here: [link], the card reader that used to come with the CycloDS Evo had the possibility of corrupting the microSD card, making it unusable.
    I was wondering if this was still true, since I think Team Cyclops started shipping the CycloDS Evo with a different customized microSD card reader.

    Anyone have any problems with it? I actually couldn't wait to put stuff on my microSD so I've already used it twice with no problems, but I'm still concerned that it might crap out on me. [​IMG]

    How would a card reader corrupt a card so that it's unusable?!?! That statement alone makes me highly doubt anything else that article may say.

    Good luck.

    You should be okay. And plus the CycloEvo readers read SDHCs too [​IMG]

    The CycloDSEvo reader is crap.
    Try hold the metal part and press the USB stick and PROF the thing fells apart!
    And thats also if you put it into your USB port.
    Very frustrating!

    Heres what happens when i "use" the reader:

    I was here... before...
    The blue one was the same as the R4 and mine is almost dead ...

    The new silver one works fine and fast ( constant 20000 Kb/s in read up to 6900 Kb/s in write with the same 2GB kingston made in japan Micro SD card on a Belkin usb 2.0 hub ). The latency is around 0.8 ms on an average computer.


    The new one i've got is referenced as
    USB version : 2.00
    Manufacturer : Genesys
    SerialNumber : 000000009407
    Vendor ID : 05E3
    Product ID : 0717
    Device ID : 9407
