    Today i received my CycloDS from Dealwoot.com when i opened it up and tried to insert my SD card would not even go in all the way in. As if the SD slot is shallow. is this a known issue with CycloDS or dealwoot?. getting the SD card out after putting it into the Cyclo is a pain its stuck in there tight and i have to pull it out hard to get my microSD back. and Yes i am putting it in the right way.

    Does it work though? Many flash cards have the problem where the MicroSD sticks out even after being pushed fully in. This could be caused by either a defect in the microSD or the flash card. Unfortunately you'll just have to ignore it, or grind off a few millimeters off the top of the microSD.

    I can get it to fit in Flush but that requires me pushing down on it harder then i like. But getting it out i almost have to get my teeth to get a grip good enough to yank it out. Does the slot need to be broken in or should i go for an RMA. its stuck in there really tight when its in there fully.

    Yeah, that's normal with brand new micro cards and flashcarts. After a few times, it'll go in smoothly. I've got my CycloDS for 11 months now, I can remember when I had to yank it out. Now it goes in easily.

    Yeah this is normal with cyclo's just keep on pulling out in putting in. it'll eventually loosen up.

    I think I had a different mind set when reading this thread....

    You still haven't mentioned if it works or not [​IMG]

    well some cyclos are prob the older batch and the micro sd is supposed to stick out for easier way to get it out.
    mine sticks out about 1mm or so but it still works

    it's a known issue that the micro sd sticks out about 1 mm...and as for the fact that it's tight, it'll loosen up overtime.

    LOL i see what you mean looking back [​IMG]

    The Cyclo works fine after awhile think it must of loosen it up a bit. Before it was extremely hard to get the MicroSD back out of the Cyclo once it was in there all the way now its still a bit of a pain but not as much. Though I'm sure over time it will get easier. Thanks everyone for there comments.
