Then he emails back (promptly again)  and says 3 words  <software on site>
which id allready done to usb key  needlees to say the usb key was useless in the iniate mode it goes to even booting with it in....

So i emailed back and told him it was no good <well u guessed it suddenly his keys fall silent>  so another email  nothing   text msg  nothing

the best way around this issue is probably a sledge hammer ;)
the extra terrestrial is a complete dog from what i've read. i'd dump it and buy a better brand.
