Bigfish, you don't upgrade the software by downloading it from a disc. You would need to buy the disc to run it constantly and I've seen prices of £450 for the disc itself.

Someone has obviously "borrowed" my spare disk as I've only one.

There is only one with the system so really there is no real way round. I haven't heard of anyone copying a disc though Question but I would imagine there are security features which makes this difficult and illegal. Cop lock

You'll have to get your wallet out I'm afraid.

there's a bloke on here that mentions he is able to supply these discs. No idea if they're originals or legal.
