Hi!
I am trying to load predator 3.11 on my dragon, but get the message "flash memory error"! It starts loading but when it comes to 14% it stops! I have tried it with 3 different dragon loader cards but get the same massage, I know the card is good, because my fried loads his dragon with that card!
Cheers!

Have you managed to successfully flash the CAM prior to this? If not, have you given the CAM for your friend to try?

I bought the cam with predator 3.03 on it, it was used! Both me and my friend tried to load predator 3.11, but always get the same massage!

hi there!

Did you "autodetect" the Dragon loader card?
If you did this, you destroyed the flash memory.

Does your receiver has a built in emulation? If it does, try to turn it off.

If this doesn't also work, roll back an older predator and try to load it again.
Never had problems before with the upgrades. In any case I'll try an older version. Thank you very much in advance.

Now I've tried to program the module with several different older versions but still no luck. I have ordered a new Loader Card, I hope that'll solve the problem but I'm not counting on it.

Did you guys ever sort out this "flash memory error" problem? I am getting the same thing. Have tried loading both later and earlier versions of Predator into my Dragon (which worked fine before, just with Firecrypt) and I get the error message after about 12% has loaded. However, one time it got as far as 98%.

The first time I tried programming the Loader card (F84A type) I think the programmer may have been on autodetect, so I have tried loading the repair file onto the Loader card, then loading Predator.

I am using Infinity USB Unlimited - is there anything in the settings which need changing? I have tried checking the box against "Restore CPU memory after ext.EEprom activity" - is this right or wrong?!

I now seem to have lost Firecrypt - can this be restored if all else fails?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi Dear Satriani

Good Afternoon

I read somewhere else there is a file which can repair the loader card
(if its really become corrupt) so squeeze the search engine and find
out the precious file.

Good luck!

The problem its not with the loader card. Its the cam itself. Try every recipe without luck.
Also I have try to program the cam directly with Cas3 give me same error.

Thank you anyway for your help. If any others ideas available will be appreciated.
