    Ok, I just got a DSTT today. There were no instructions or anything in the box.

    I stuck the MicroSD I was using in my phone into it, and when I turned it on, it just said Loading... then switched to "Menu?"

    Are there any files I will need to get it working?

    If so, I would greatly appreciate someone linking me to said files.

    Go to the official website here and download the latest TTMenu and stick that in the root of your microSD card.

    What doe sit say on the question mark .

    Blue means , no SD card
    Red means no system file i think

    Reformat your TF to FAT32 and place all agian

    Be sure to place the TTMENU.DAT and TTMENU.SYS in the ROOT of your card
    like this:

    \TTMENU
    TTMENU.DAT
    TTMENU.SYS

    Why? The only difference is the language.ini file in the "TTMENU" directory.

    Hi Guys,
    The DSTT being fairly new on the market is leading to a lot of questions about how to get the card up and running. From memory, some cards advertise that the os and moonshell etc.. are pre loaded, but they are not! Perhaps a sticky on "How to set up a DSTT" would be appropriate. It could include a download link for the firmware, instructions for beginners on the basic folders/files required to get the card to boot, and any other basic stuff to help out.

    I know that none of the setup is all that high tech, but I'm sure it would be appreciated by those who need it.

    When a "... how do I get my card to work..." thread is posted, a reply with the link could be posted soon after to sort it out.

    Just a suggestion

    What, the instructions on www.ndstt.com aren't enough?

    Obviously not! That's why people are asking/having trouble. I think prospective buyers expect to find a cd in the box that has an installation wizard to do the work.

    Her is an example from the R4 forum.

    The website address is on the DSTT box. Even my DSTT review states you need to copy the latest TTMenu found on the website to the card.

    If people really need more pointers they didn't research their purchase enough. That's how I feel anyway.

    I appreciate your passion, and as you say;
    "...so a thread like the R4 one you're advocating will surely soon materialize in this forum..."

    cht is Traditional Chinese
    chs is Simplified Chinese
    eng is English

    Copy everything in that 'eng' folder onto the root of your MicroSD
