Default Minolta Dimage Firmware update 2

Hello,

i just read a few topics on this forum to inform me about the new firmware upgrade for the minolta dimage 7.
I also read on the minolta site that you can purchase the update for about 80$.
i searched on yahoo for a dealer and found that you can download the software for free from the minolta site.
http://minolta***********
Why do they sell it and on the other side give it for free download?

it is not a minolta site. that site is a pirate site posting the upgrade. it is illegal in this country and just about any other to steal. it is your option to use this site and take your chances. it is stealing. we here at this location tend to take a dim view towards such activity. we ask that you please remove the URL to that sight from your post voluntarily immediatly. if not it will be removed by the administrator.

nice bait isn't it. i can name my url just about anything.
no it's just some individual got a hold of the firmware and wants to show he's cooler than anyone else. when really he she or it is nothing more than a common criminal. if it's not posted on an official minolta site it not theirs. they're official sites are pretty obvious with there logo and products all over the place on the site. professionally designed with copyright statements all over the place.

we appreciate your action in the removal of the URL.

Hi

may be it sounds strange but
I do have difficulty to buy new
upgrade. I live in Eastern Europe
and Minolta here doesn´t want
se order US version of upgrade for
normal price (they want some extra
fee for nearly a making a double price)
But when you ask if you can use European
version of upg. to my camera bought in States, they tell me not. Would you
we so nice and send me American version
of that upgrade? Just a camera.
Divu I can by - no trouble - it works for all
countries.

thank you in advance

Petr
