I've got a drain that I want to look in, so I think I might buy a 5 metre one.

If you've been playing with your computer you will most likely have to download the disc again.
Seems the simplest solution to me anyway.

Good luck

It wasn't so simple for me; had to install the software from the disc; but that does fall into line with my luck with 'puters..
Also when I use the camera I use the short cut to the software on my desk top when the camera usb is plugged in.
Some months since I last tried it though.
Its always the same, you buy a gadget & then the need for it fails to happen. :roll:

Good luck.
Cheers

Or you buy the gadget and when you finally find a need it fails. ...and it's just out of warranty (not that these came with one. :lol:
I did finally use mine four months after purchase. I too had to load the program from the disc to make it work.

I will yogi bear that in mind bobo :D
But my desk top short cut will do the same I would think but that is with the previously installed software.

Anyway, pleased to hear you're up & running again.
So is there actually any toothpaste left in that tube John :lol:
