Neither am I prepared to do that. My only intention in even mentioning those CD-dependent memory cards was to allow someone with more knowledge about them than I have (who has never even seen one) to determine if that is what the poor guy has. Evidently you do know that it is not such a card, which closes that branch of the discussion.

Thus there was no promotion of warez in any of those posts.
5) The OP wants the CD for a function it provides but it is not part of his product, asking for it is asking for a product he has not paid for.
An obvious step certainly, but not necessarily the first or only one. He has a problem and it's only natural to seek solutions in more places than just one.
When I worked at Datel and the customer service was pretty decent and contacting them is clearly the first step the OP should have taken
Which is not what he did. He turned to this forum for general advice on his problem. The software request came only after being (apparently in error) convinced that it might be that product he had, in which case he would have been entitled to use that software. But I agree that this is not the proper place to exchange software of that kind. For that Datel should be the first choice, falling back on other means only if they default on their obligations.
rather than asking for warez on a public board.
Not really, as I think we both have better things to do.
I'm happy to continue the discussion of warez etc in an Off Topic/General discussion thread if you'd like? :)
