    No, what they are saying is, the people who make fake SuperCards, are now making fake CycloDS carts.

    Basically, what the fake makers have done is re-badge their fake slot-2 SuperCards with the CycloDS logo, by the looks of things.

    Actually, that's not a fake CycloDS, SuperCard means this: http://www.cyclopsds.com/cgi-bin/cyclods/e...l?page=products
    See MiniSD and MicroSD? These are clones of SuperCards...

    Actually, SuperCard is accusing the Cyclops team of cloning their SLOT-2 cards, which they actually did. The CycloDS mini and micro versions are actually clones of SuperCard products, even using the same menus. This is a very old issue though.

    So the OP is actually correct, he's just beating a very, very dead horse.

    The CycloDS Evo (Slot-1), is not a clone, and SuperCard has never alleged that it was.

    I think you even could change the firmware on slot 2 CycloDS to slot 2 Supercard firmware and then they actually worked better [​IMG]

    Rawfl. There are like numerous threads of these. SuperCard is just trying to make profit. Even though CycloDS is better than them

    What this means? SuperCard is NOT trying to make profit. It's just trying to defend its intellectual property, because we are talking about Slot-2 CycloDS, which Team Cyclops sold them as theirs, which are Slot-2 SC clones.

    And the SCDS One is a GREAT card which can stand without problem to the CycloDS Evo, and in my humble opinion it's EVEN better.

    I'm getting tired of all those CycloDS Evo fanboys out there, bashing SCDS One for no reason at all.

    Shocking news indeed. Didn't think it'd be a fake since everyone praised it so much.

    Lol, old news from a year ago. All the Slot-2 CycloDS carts are fake Supercards. However, the CycloDS Evo and the CycloWiz are their own, genuine products.

    I knew this over 6 monthes ago, but OP, at least say that CycloDS slot-2, instead of just saying CycloDS, because that includes the CycloDS evolution, which is not a clone off of Supercard DS1. All the Slot-2 carts are clones, but not the CycloDS Evolution.

    The CycloDS IS a clone. CycloDS Evolution is not.
