Going from 7.5 to 8.1 and from os9 to os10

I have been frustrated by the lack of support I received from the media 100 customer service folks... I am stuck and am not sure which way to go...I am hoping you folks can provide some options for me. Here's my situation.... I had a PowerMac G4 which ran os9.2 and I had the p6000 vincent card installed running media 100 7.5.  This was over two years ago. The company I worked for abandoned their interest in video productions so the system sat dormant until recently when I tried to start it.  I ended up replacing the Mac with a newer G4 model...this one came with os 10 installed.  I have the update disks from media 100 to go to 8.1 which is supposed to work with os 10....however try as I might, I cannot get the system installed...the system key numbers are not recognized ?  I tried contacting the people at media 100...they replied telling me I had to pay a $495 fee to upgrade to version 8.2!!!!! (the company let their platinum service contract lapse when they abandoned their interest in video). Is there anything I can do the system working?  It will not run with either the 7.5 system installed or the 8.1 system installed?  I would appreciate any advice you can provide. Thank you. Gary

The satellite will not turn on

Hello, my name is Tommy Faust with DISH Network Customer Service. I understand how frustrating this problem can get.

If you're still having the issue, what it's doing is called Boot Recovery. It needs to finish the recovery process and should power back on fine.

I hope this helped! Feel free to get back to me here if you have any further questions.

Archos 605 wifi broken screen

I have a similar problem. I received my Archos 605 two weeks ago and thought the product was awesome. However, I had to call customer service for the plug-ins I was supposed to receive free. I was dropped twice after waiting for 12 - 15 minutes each time. On my third call, I finally received customer service after waiting an additional 12 minutes. The woman was very nice where she finally got me 6 of the 7 the rebate specified.

Today, 09/14/09, I had to call Archos for the broken screen which was a 20 minute wait. It is NOT under warranty and will cost me $155.00 plus shipping. I paid $154.99 total for the unit brand new.

Customer service stated sorry. DO NOT PURCHASE AN ARCHOS -- BY A IPOD. I HAVE LEARNED!

OS9 icons change on OS10

I had the same thing happen when I switched from os9 to osx. I had to install the programs, Quark, Illustrator, etc. then the icons appearance was normal. You may also have to actually open the program, then open the files themselves before the icons show as normal.

Hope this helps.
