Bought a hardly used DX9 from my LHS. Trying to register it and download some programs and when I insert an SD card the TX locks up- I can't even turn it off- have to unplug the battery to do so. Tried another SD card and same thing. Neither of these is the SD cards that came with the TX-LHS didn't provide that.
What am I missing? Thanks David

Does it work without it?
Then, bad memory cards. Buy a name brand such as SanDisk.
Ive read some have had issues even with the ones it came with.
I lucked out.

Well, buy the proper memory card. No Good nor bad.

Check correct type that is related to read and write speed.

From https://www.androidcentral.com/ever...-and-your-phone

DS speed cards are rated (slowest to fastest) 2,4 or 6

HS speed cards are rated 10

Sometimes UHS cards are abbreviated as U1, U2, and U3

You'll find the speed class of the SD card listed on the packaging and printed on the card itself. Look for a ②, ④, ⑥ or ⑩ printed on DS or HS class cards and the actual rating on a UHS class card. And know that a UHS-3 (I have no idea why Roman Numerals weren't used for 3 when they were for I and II) card is about 30 times faster than a class 2 DS rated card.

Saludos cordiales,

You plugged in the SD card while the DX9 was powered on?
The transmitter's not like a PC.
You may have better luck plugging / unplugging the SD card while the DX9 is turned off.
The transmitter's upgrade process includes copying the new SPMTX.SAX file to the SD card and then powering on the transmitter.
I am on v1.20.15 now.

Also, the original SD card is 128MB (not GB) and is the slowest rated card there is.
I personally have a 2GB card plugged into mine, but that's because it is the only one I had laying around.

If you feel the SD card is questionable, get SD Memory Card Formatter.
Formatting the SD card with Windows is a waste of time.
