    Just thought I'd warn you guys, and see if anyone else has had the same issue. My Cyclo has been working perfectly for ages, this is the first problem I've ever had with it. While playing N+, and moving to another screen, the screen remains black while music continues to play (basically it crashes). After reseting my DS due to this for the second time, the system no longer detects the Cyclo, just says no cart is in the system.

    I did trim my rom, if that might have anything to do with it, has anyone else experienced anything like this? Crashes or dead carts?

    Try pushing the cart all the way down and holding it there until it boots? Sometimes the pins just act stupid, so try that.

    I'm playing it on my CycloDS but it seems to be working fine. What level or screen were you transferring from/to?

    "perfectly for ages" ?

    Does this mean you have the version 1 CycloDS? If so, then it's a problem with the cart, not the game.

    lnik459 is right, Its probably just a problem with the contacts. Also try blowing into the slot 1 hole.

    I don't think it's version 1, I got it just before the black ones started releasing I think, so it is a few versions behind, so it's about time I upgraded it anyway. Still, yeah thought I'd mention this and see what other people are experiencing.

    You do have the earliest version since you mentioned there being no black ones when you got yours.

    Many people have had this problem, it's because the contacts are not connecting properly. To fix it, tape a piece of paper to the front side of the CycloDS so it pushes the contacts to connect properly.

    But N+ didn't shoot the deputy. Ha, I couldn't help myself. Anyways, maybe it's just a problem on your MicroSD; you should try reformatting. Oh, and why would you trim N+? It's not like it ain't small enough as it is.

    I trimmed mine too, just so I can squeeze whatever free space I have out there to fit other stuff.

    Actually I think when the black ones came out it was already v3. So he might have a v2.
    I know my v1 broke down and I got a v2 and that was before anyone had heard of the black cyclo. (Well people had made comments, but it was not announced for production)
