Imagine Troubleshoot

Just like the Gypsy sync has troubleshoot so does the Imagine. But I think it needs to be fixed a bit.
You can download the Imagine update only for PC users at http://www.cricut.com/imagine/support.aspx
And do we need to do it. Gypsy suers - yes as this prepares for the Gypsy. And guess it is now postponed to November 1st or 3rd. Well. And not only that I do not know why as the cricut E does not need new cartridges update and in Imagine too we connect the cartridge in the side unlike the G where the cartridge info is already on the G but the new cartridges like Happy Haunting needs this update.
There is 2 parts to the update - a firmware part and the content part. Preferably do it from the Application launcher screen or the about screen. If you do not have success the first time keep trying.It should switch off and then reboot. As I said try more than once. In mine the firmware portion went on well enough but the content did not happen and kept switching off and after the firmware update the Imagine kept going to welcome screen. So I did the troubleshoot.
Before the update - the version was 1.0 (0066:????:0239) and after the firmware part of it the version was 1.01(0079:????:0239:201G). But I do not know what it will be after content part of it until my Imagine comes back
 Here are screen shots while I was doing it.
























































And it just went to the next screen and before I could capture the screen it conked. Imagine just switched off. The ink cartridge flap was up so sadly I could not even retain an extra ink cartridges both the rounds for all my pain.. And lifting this thing  - guess who needs to go to the physiotherapist? It is so time consuming waiting in those hospitals!! I hate being in a hospital -I should add as a patient!! Being a doctor is another matter and if not for my brother and mother would have been one. Hmm see it shows that one should always not be good and listen to your mom and siblings. I would have most probably been saving lives and saving myself this frustration :) having most probably been too busy to have heard of cricut:)

Pam,

Do you know what the version is when you are finished with the update? I have done all of this also and it still isn't updated after doing it 3 complete times last night it still says version 1.01, what should it be? Not real happy with PC right now either.
