    we have a strand 300 and i updated it from 2.4d to 2.6c last week(i know its not the newest). i loaded it and i cleared the most recent shows and i cleared the old ones. i go to save my show and i saved my general settings and then i go to save a play and it says there isnt enough room. how can i be out of room??

    I haven't played with mine all summer - little rusty. Why not update to 2.85? That's the latest - perhaps there's a bug.

    Have you checked the archives?

    You may have deleted the old shows from the memory but the archieves can still be there taking up all your space.

    pndoran is quite right.. strand use regluar computer hard drives and they do fill up with crap... after your shows give the hard drive a re-format and put on 2.85. while there may be no visable shows they could still be archieve on there somewhere

    When the screen comes up with the cyan background, start pressing F8 until you get prompted [Y/N] for each line in your autoexec.bat. You want to say Y to evertyhing except the line that says "os". This will drop you at a c prompt. From here, you can use the del command to clear out old shows.

    When you're ready to fire up the OS, type "cd 220os" and tehn "os".

    I'm sure you can find a set ont eh INternet. I have them, but tehcnically you need a license, adn I'm not going to condone piracy or the like by giving you my set.

    I don't think that you're going to have any luck with the slave HDD< but, if you poke around int he BIOS (there hsoudl be a button to press right when you power it up), you might be able o change the boot drive. Out of curioisity - why are you doing this?

    i agree.. virtual pc is so much easier!

    im not sure, i hope someone can correct me if im wrong but microsoft virtual pc comes with dos already, just like a fresh computer possibly... dont know too much about the whole dos, windows, bios stuff but from memory...

    Use the OLE at home, save the shwo to a disk, load it ot the board. Highly unlikely that the extra HDD will work. THe board is running DOS6 - 512 meg is the limit I believe. If memeory serves, the thing has a solid state hdd anyway.

    you would have to email strand about a genuine strand remote, but i know that they have changed over to wireless remotes with palm pilots recently. however you can generally pick up generic remotes for any desk through your lighting hire place or outlet.

    again, you dont need it on an external hard drive you simply need virtual pc which emulates a hard drive to the size specified, i emulate a 4gb hard drive which has strand on it and just do all my patch at home and save to floppy.
