you have a usb connection on the back of the 2500 hook it up to your computer and drag the OS on the mpc that way or get the cd reader for it and install it via cd. that's also great to save samples on a cd then load and save them that way. you can probably google on how to install OS to mpc via usb, but its pretty simple. hope this helps you out homie! :smoker:

Thanks for the reply but you can't install os on the hdd, it had to be cf card. Don't think CD either.

Go to a drug store, buy a injection needle with a bigger hole inside, cut the sharp front and use it to massage your bent pins back. Be gentle and do it slowly with love. Cost 1$ and 5 minutes of your time.

Use the red straw off a can of Wd-40 or compressed air to insert over the bent pin and straighten it out.
