 When you load the card and go into instrument assign, are the instruments from the card showing up? They should be at the very end of the list. On mine, I just stick the card in, and the instruments then show up to be assigned, pull it and they're gone. I don't do anything with the card load menu. I have never used the card load menu for ROM, just RAM. I just went and tried it again a few times with a couple of cards (Electronic and Dance, of course!) , and all I did was stick the card in to get the sounds. 

And two thumbs up from me on the R8, I love mine.  I also have an R8 II, which is nice because of the expanded memory, but to my ears doesn't quite sound as good.

if I chose to load the sound demo ...The demo plays all the NEW sounds. Fine.But when I do load the ROM sounds only, the R8 keys keep on still playing the original sounds.I have 4 ROM cards and they all do the same.I read many times the user manual but so far can’t find any solutions..Any body ???ThanksJP_______________________________________________
