    Hello guys,

    I am one of those who purchased 67quid for my DSX cart back to 2006.

    In the past three years. it does most of its duty and I am happy to see it still works.

    Things happens in last week. I was using the moonshell reading some books.

    Suddenly it freezes. I obviously turn the power off and On as usual.

    Some how, the Moon shell won't start at all but when I try other games. fine no problem!

    So I played mini ninja for 4 hours and it does save....until next day. I found that I dont have the save.

    As well as in some other game like ACE Anthony which says" save failed".

    The firmware is 1.1.3 beta.

    What do you think guys? I guess the problem is somehow the EEPROM of it dies...or fails to write but only readable.

    HUMMMm....I shall go to another cart after his 3 years hard work...

    I'd say it's died. You are better off with something that uses separate flash storage...

    By that I mean the R4 or the Acekard 2i or similar as they use microSD cards to store the files. That way if the storage media dies you just get a new one for your card. MicroSD cards are so cheap now.

    Just NEVER NEVER get the R4, its unsupported now and all of them are clones. ( unless you are a R4 Freak like me [​IMG]) Get an Acekard 2i, and also almost forgot, try reformatting your DSX

    I think it's fair to say it's lived it's life, time to move on, outdated card is outdated.

    Nope.

    Standard R4 software (just skinned it and added folders but other than that, untouched).

    Agreed - I have a true R4 as well! Am now on YSmenu - who's to say that AceKard won't get axed before dstt updates?
