    Well here's the problem my NDS doesn't detect the cycloDS i thought it was the microSD but no i tried with two different microSD and it was still undetected... =(
    I have one of the first Cyclo so is it dead ?

    Sounds like it's dead.

    When you turn on the DS, does the Nintendo logo show up underneath the 'Nintendo DS' logo on the top screen? If it doesn't show up, your card is screwed.

    Way back when there were a defective batch of CycloDS's -- looks like you got unlucky.

    Maybe the metal contacts are wearing. Try cleaning the contacts with alcohol or something.

    There is a way to fix this problem. Tape a piece of paper over the CycloDS sticker. What this does is to make the Cyclo fatter, enabling the contacts to connect properly.

    Cleaning the contacts is probably a good idea too.
