    When i turn my ds on and pick cyclods it starts to load but there is just an empty bar and no matter how long i wait it stays there empty i tried another micro sd card and it worked fine and the same one that didn't work on other devices and checked my computer to see if the files where still there and they were any help [​IMG]

    Your micro sd is probably dead, same thing happened to mine. I ended up just chucking it and buying a new 4GB.

    EDIT: Have you tried formatting it?

    No it's not dead if other devices can read it. But for the Cyclo to read it again you'll have to format.
