I'm looking for help as a newbie, but I've done a lot of information gathering and I'm now at a bit of a loss - with Christmas fast approaching!

We've been given an original Cryptoworks card for the holiday period - for 'Slovak Link' and I know it works in a Humax with embedded cam.

What I've got is a Dragon Cam with 2.29 firmware.
I load that into my Humax F1VACI and it recognises it ok.
The card is also recognised as a 'cryptoworks' - but underneath that it has '---' and at the bottom it says 'Decoding failure'

1) Is there any chance I could have busted the card with this cam?
2) Should this card at v2.29 be able to work with an original card?
3) Am I using an incompatible receiver - the F1VACI box info is:
- H/W SVC 1.00
- S/W SVC 2.04.06
- Driver SVC 2.04.06
- Last update: 05 Jan 2000
- Loader L 2.05 (0004.0000)

I'm looking at getting a Dreambox DM 7000-S, will that be able to work with the original card - either out of the box or with an upgrade?

Many thanks in advance for any help! :confused

I've just been thinking that CAM emulation is a pretty stable thing - after all, if users had to regularly change their CAMs there'd be a subscriber revolt or something wouldn't there?

What is confusing though is that I noticed it mentioned for firmware version 2.02 that Cryptoworks is supported thus:
From http://www.dragonmodule.com/

10.05.2004
Predator 202 for Dragon & embedded Cam and Emulator All In One
... / ...
Re-integrated support for original cards, this version does work with:
Seca, Irdeto, Viaccess, Conax, Cryptoworks, Nagra smartcards
- but then there is no further mention of Cryptoworks in later versions.
Is that just a given or is there something that I'm missing here?

Thanks to john_graydon for the Dreambox info - I'm already building a battery of files and guides in preparation for the 'new arrival'!
