You can pull out the hard drive and ghost(Clone) it to another hard drive in another computer that has the software. Or you can get  automatic cloning portable hard drive from a company called "Clickfree" 1TB HD for $149.99. Plug it into your USB and it automatically clones your Hd to storage. Simple

We had a problem with our KIS 1550.  It didn't want to read the scuzzy dongle.  We thought it was the software and reloaded the software.  It still gives us the same problem, it doesn't want to load the program because it doesn't pick up the dongle.  It says "Version Unknown" When we click on the correct version 4.1, the program doesn't want to run.  What can we do to solve this problem.  

Do you know where I can get a new LCD for the KIS 1550.  I am in Cape Town, South Africa.

ralphmalph - where this resistor should be changed ?

Beach Photo - I am not sure they are not the same ... Long time ago when they were entering the market I heard LCD had the same size but piezo block is driven differently. Previously it was x4 and x9, on 1700 series it was possible to make x16 which allowed to make bigger formats.

CHeckt the prices for 1500 anyway - you can still buy some used blocks, altough the fresh ones are hard to reach. AFAIK there is a procedure to regenerate LCD itself - i heard about it.
