If it's very old, you will need to update the firmware to enable Via2.

Obtain the latest version (V 4.09) OTA

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Simply unplug the receiver from the electricity for a few minutes and only insert the card when the receiver is disconnected

Simbas suffer from 'hot plugging' on the card slots
