Hi, just wondering if you got any ideas?

I bought a Sandisk Ultra 64gb memory for it and have the custom firmware 1.2, but kept the bit rates at 6 front and 3 rear.

I couple of times its just frozen, with the Blue and Red LED constantly on all the time, when i put the original SD card back in its fine, it only works on the 64gb if I format the 64gb on a PC and start fresh.

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Try formatting with using the firmware instead of in your PC.

I didn't experience this using the Ultra - but it is really too slow to make proper use of the firmware.

how old is your sandisk memory card?

I know that it fails working after approx 3 months if you use it regularly. The given MTBF is wrong, the chips just reach the End of lifetime. A full format will expose that failure.

It was brand new a days old. It was the custom firmware. Gone back to 2.002 and it works fine, bar a few issues with the power magic pro.
