I just got my CycloDS Evolution in the mail and I tried to run the 1.53 update and it's been stuck at about 50% for the past 4 hours. I don't know what the heck is going on but I have'nt even gotten a chance to run my first game with it yet, this sucks. I tried to sign up for the forum over at the CycloDS website and the admin has disabled the registration. I paid 50 bucks for this card and it's already junk, I should have just went with the AceKart2. I thought the CycloDS team were people who stood behind their product, but I can't even get into their friggin forum to ask for support. I'm so pissed right now.

Anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions on what I should do to try and save the card (or am I just out of 50 bucks)?

Try using the 1.51 firmware. It seems the 1.53 one is buggy for some people.


Thanks man, I tried the 1.51 firmware and I was able to get the update installed. Unfortunately I'm still having issues, I can't get any games to run so far. I initially formatted the microsd card under windows and the CycloDS would just either say loading without progressing or go to a whitescreen. I did a reformat using the Panasonic SD formatter but so far it's still doing the same thing. Not sure really what's going on at this point, I'm going to pick up a new microsd card today (probably a Kingston) and see if that makes a difference.


Edit: I'm using the card that came with the CycloDS from realhotstuff, it's an OEM card so I'm not really sure who the maker is.

thanks your sarcasm has been really helpful, how the hell am I supposed to know why registration is closed? In the meantime I'll send them an email if a new microsd card does'nt resolve my problems

arkitech, I realise you're probably quite frustrated at the moment, but Kuraudo39 wasn't being sarcastic at all. New registrations at the CycloDS forums are closed because they were having a chronic spammer problem there.

The guy was just trying to help out by making sure you didn't waste time trying to register so you could get tech support there is all.

Update: I guess it was all in the card, I bought a Transcend today and so far I've had no issues. I've been able to load and play about 5 or 6 games.

Thanks for the help guys, sorry if I came across a little hostile.

I had no problems going to 1.53 with mine. I am using a A-Data 8GB Class 6 MicroSD formatted FAT32 with 16KB cluster size (default cluster size for FAT/FAT32 can be overridden with a custom size in the CLI version of format). I got the MicroSD from MeritLine.com (http://www.meritline.com/8gb-microsdhc-card.html ). On sale for $17 until 1/13/2009. Regular price is $27, which is still way cheaper than buying it directly from dealwoot or from Best Buy. MeritLine.com is not selling the 16GB MicroSD cards yet.

    If the store has a no gun policy and they don't leave I think it's an arrestable offensive police sadly never show the full story

    that indiana guy who shot the mall shooter apparently was not committing any crimes - he had the gun concealed and so of course no one asked him to leave
