And Mercedes, if they would only lower their prices, would be the best selling car on the planet..? LOL

Maybe diamonds ought to be cheaper, too... Then we could use them on the soles of our shoes!

Meanwhile, back to the topic ...
Without getting into a PC vs. Mac discussion - I can't comment on Mac 'cause I've never owned one - but I tried the link posted by cass ... I followed all the steps and after I got a message saying that the change to the registry didn't go through (for whatever reason it gave me) I went back to My Documents, clicked on the 'New Folder' in the top pane and VOILA!!! - there was a NEW FOLDER !!! repeated the action and there was a second NEW FOLDER ... did a right click, went to NEW and there at the top of the list was FOLDER ...
Don't know what I did or didn't do, but as long as it is working and nothing else is screwed up, I am fine with it ... now back to music stuff ... rocker

And so will all our arrangers! Strange, I'm not reading a lot about the slow milking of human finances where overpriced arrangers are concerned...

We'll happily pay $4k for a new Tyros, with a bare handful of new sounds and styles, but $1000 for a computer you'll NEVER have to ask desperately for help to make it do the most basic of things?

It's about money... REALLY?

No, ”we” will NEVER pay 4000$ on an arranger, neither will the high price have much to do with asking (or not) for help. wink

Sorry, but I know of some that have paid that high (not everybody shops online at Frank's!), and we are quibbling over $500? Certainly, $3500 is nothing to sneeze at either!

The point being, despite the T4 being considerably more expensive than say a PA3X, you don't hear any T4 users seeming to mind to the point that they would change.

But slap an extra $500 on a computer (and there are Mac products like the iMac's and Mini's that can get down pretty close to PC prices as long as you don't buy bargain basement shoddy ones) and all of a sudden, it's 'milking the public' and you all keep using a system that gives you constant grief.

Me, I don't get it. How much is peace of mind and the ability to forget you are using a computer, and simply concentrate on what you want to do with it worth to you? Apparently, not very much!

Hi Tony,
happy to read you've now got it working.

Something drastically went wrong with my laptop the other day.
Fortunately I had a very recent full backup, so reloaded win7 & the backup, now working again.
Not that I knew what I was doing, so probably overkill , but I had nothing to lose. I keep all my files on SD cards ( not in the laptop) & all my programs on external hard drives.
So just a case of loading a few programs back in should the worst happen again.
A couple of years ago , I dropped my laptop, broke the hard drive, & to my horror the 6 month old back up drive that my laptop was backed up on , was faulty. Weeks of work finding & sorting all my programs & files from dozens of DVD roms.

I'd tried 2 or 3 earlier system restore points, ( latest to earliest) none worked for me either.
