i am real newbie, i've tried to search the information from google and here
but still confused.
now i got a Dynamite programmer(usb cable& serial cable) and a dragon cam(vz original loader card, card is empty) and predator file,
then what shall i do next?

just connect both USB and serial cable to the programmer(so it is working @ 6M?), insert the loader card and write the predator file in, that's all?
or anything else i should do?

thanks in advance

Hi coloureye,
in the Predator folder you will find a file howto.txt which gives step by step instructions, it is best to print out the instructions and follow them to prevent damaging your Cam.
Please post back if you have any problems.

"You need:
-Smartmouse compatible card programmer
-The dragonload.exe program
-Connect the card programmer to com1 or com2, make sure the programmer is in 6 MHz mode
-Execute "dragonload.exe"
-By pressing the "Settings" button, you can change from com1 to com2
-Press "Connect"
-In the file open dialog that appears, select the firmware you want to load.
-The card will now be loaded.
ALTERNATIVE METHOD
For this method, you need a FUN7 card
Using a suitable program, program the FLASH of the FUN7 card with FUN7LDR.HEX,
and program the EEPROM with predator2XX.bin. Make sure the program you use
handle the large eeprom size of the fun7 card correctly!
END alternative method
Insert the programmed card into the Dragon module. Insert this into a receiver
and turn on the receiver. make sure you are tuned to an FTA channel.
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 porgress 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."
