Question 1 - My laptop crashed and I lost my Design Studio that was on there. You only get one download. When I got my new laptop it won't download. Support has said if I send my serial number, they will reset it. Where is that number supposed to be. I can't find it in the book, on the CD or anywhere in the box my software came in. If I knew where to find it, it might help me??
Question 2-If I can't get my studio software to work and need to replace, is the Gypsy really worth it? If I buy cartridges that are linked to a Gypsy can I use them in my design studio or not?
I purchased my Design Studio years ago and haven't had time to even learn how to use it, I will be so bummed if I can't get it to work because my laptop crashed but I like the additional options above and beyond the cricut expression alone...Used that twice in the past 6 years. I can't wait to graduate so I can "play" again.
Thanks for any help on my questions. I see so much about "linked" cartridges and I really don't understand the consequences for that.
You can use linked carts with your design studio. Once a cart has been linked to a gypsy you can not link it to another gypsy, it will still work in the machine as with DS tho.
I asked for a gypsy for christmas (they had a deal at cricutmachine.com where you got the gypsy and 7 carts for $89) and I linked all of my carts up. since I have 2 cricuts I lent my little one with all of my carts to my friend who can't afford one and I have my gypsy with all of my carts and my expression at home. I had to keep one cart in my machine so I could use SCAL and my computer fonts with my cricut.
The only downside to Gypsy is the small screen.
I got a new computer and cricut reset my serial # but I had saved it in an email because I bought it online. I bet the sereal number is printed on the CD or on the paperwork that came with your DS software.
