Anyone know which one to load onto the loader card and then onto the tuner?

I am using a Infinity USD, Phoenix compatible burner.

THANX!

What loader card do you have?

There are two types.

Also, probably somewhere on this site and also on most other sites is a very long list of instructions that answer this and other questions on the dragon.

Hi Skrolly,
that doesn't answer the question, there are 2 types of loader card a Fun 7 or a PIC, if it is a Fun 7 it will have have Fun 7 written on it, usually by the chip, otherwise it'll be a PIC card, both types are easily programmed using an Infinity programmer.
The latest software for the Infinity programmer is 1.51, you can download this software from:
_http://www.infinityusb.com/default.asp?show=support
After upgrading your software Open up Infinity programmer, do not switch to Phoenix mode.
If your card is a Fun 7, from the drop down box, choose PrussianCard5 or DragonloaderCard (AVR) both of which are Fun Card7.
1. Load FUN7LDR.HEX into Flash.Click onto folder icon and navigate to C: Unzipped Predator 324.
2. Load predator324.bin into Ext. EEprom and choose option 2 for splitting the file.
3. Write.
If you loader card is a PIC, choose DragonloaderCard (PIC),
1 Load predator324.dra into Ext. EEprom and choose option 2 for splitting the file.
2. Write
The most important thing is to follow the howto.txt step by step when loading your Dragon Cam, as a mistake can damage your Cam.
Make sure your receiver is tuned to a FTA channel, I use BBC world, turn off your receiver.
Insert the programmed card into the Dragon module, chip face up. Insert this into your receiver and turn on the receiver. Go to the Common interface menu on the receiver, and select the "Dragon Loader" module.
In the next menu, select "yes, Load module".
Now a menu appears indicating that loading is in progress. To see the actual progress percentage, select "refresh". There is no auto-refresh because some receivers had problems with that....
When loading is complete, a menu appears saying "Loading successful". REMOVE the loader card from the module, and switch off and turn back on the receiver.
I hope this helps.
Best wishes
Mickha
