TimmyC... Is that from the service manual CD's or the paper manual? I have the CD's but I can't get it to print or copy images since it works in it's own XP software. I run vista which may be one of the reasons but the CD's seem to operate in their own windows application. It lets me copy text but every time I try to copy images it brings up a website URL that is invalid.

It's a DVD. I just right clicked and "save as".
