Help!
Can't power programming card

Hey makers,
This is my first post here, please be gentle.
I have the following OPTO ESC (http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=44597)
I'm trying to program the ESC with the programming card, so I'm using an external power supply (5v / 0.1A) directly to the programming card, but the programming card doesn't power on.
I have two programming cards, and I've tried with a couple of different ESC (all of the same model), and it doesn't work.
I know the steps of connecting the parts is crucial (power to the ESC last), but I've tried both ways.
Nothing.
Hope I can get some help here, so thanks in advance,

Which programming card do you have?
How do you know it isn't powering on?
Can you post a photo of your setup with everything connected?

I believe it's not powering due to the fact no lights / sounds are coming from the programming card as expected

Hope the picture is clear enough,

I see the power wires coming out of the card, but not what they are connected to. Can you post a picture of your power supply?

I hope this one is clearer

The power supply is rated to output 5V / 1A

Measure the voltage coming out of the 5V adapter (it should be very close to 5V). Note that the programming card may blow up if it gets more than 6V.

Anyway I think I have found the problem. That programming card is not for your ESC! You need this:-
