    Hi Greg,

    I'm running out the door now so don't have time to work on this but I edited your post and took out your phone number, name, and mail address. In the future for your safety please don't post your phone or e-mail address online in a public forum as spammers will grab it and use it to send you junk mail.

    If you have to, take the card out and use the original for now so that you can use the PC and either myself or someone else will be by shortly to assist you.
