Default DX9 Update - how long?

I just bought a new DX9. I registered it and downloaded the 1.06 firmware and sound files to the SD card then powered off the radio, put in the SD card, and turned the radio back on. It's had a completely blank screen (with backlight on) for about 45 minutes now. I haven't seen anything such as text or progress bars and I haven't seen the screen flash. The owner's manual says not to turn off the radio while it's updating. How long should the update be taking? Oh, the Spektrum bars haven't turned on either. It had 1.01 firmware on it from the factory.

I borrowed a 4GB SDHC card from my camera and it worked. I even tried formatting the one that came with the radio. Thanks.

SDHC is likely a Class6 card. Going to a higher class card is the thing to do. I had a few problems with various Class 2 cards. Since Ive switched to SDHC Class 6 no more issues.

Picked up a DX-9 Black Edition and had the same issue with the SD card that it came with. Used a microSD card with an SD adapter, and it worked. $500 radio and they package it with an el cheapo bum SD card. Hmmmmm....
