Hi Pawel,

  I didn’t recognize the problem as decribed in your mail, so to be sure I just tested my 2 Getting Started cards on my OMP and... they’re  working quite well 😅

> Hi Guys,
> Long story short: One of the Newton users asked me how to run this card on Newton, because his card won’t work. I’ve tried my cards (i have 5 cards). Non of them works… So, I did quick tests and after short investigation I’ve wrote a few words about it - you can read it here: http://applenewton.co.uk/2019/01/06/newton-getting-started-card-inside/
> I’m not specialist, so I don’t know about memory card types that much, but by me this card is ROM card (see pictures in my text on website). Please, correct me if I’m wrong.
> So, my questions are:
> 1. How it is possible that ROM memory can fail in time?
> 2. If it is not a ROM, what it can be?
> 3. Is there any Newton user, who have working Getting Started card? Is it possible to make some ‘image’ with the software from this card, to save it for next generation? :)
> If you know something about this cards, please share here.
> Best regards,
