Hey yall, just copped me a cheap 500 today and was wondering where i can find the latest OS for it and how do i install it as well ? Also my unit came with some extra ram but my unit isnt reading it i just get the standard 16mb amount on start up, the seller said possibly an OS update will will help make it read the ram ( he wasnt too clued up about the unit himself hence why i got it cheap haha ) Any help much appreciated, thanks :)

OS1.31 is the latest (last) operating system for the MPC500.
You can find it here...
And the manual to install the RAM here...

What brand name is the RAM?
IMHO... get a popular brand of RAM (Crucial, Kingston, Samsung) at 256MB so you can get the full maxed out 128MB for the MPC500.

Yeah, what type of RAM you using? You can't just ram any RAM up the 500. Like Juke mentioned (waddap waddap holmes! :mrgreen: ), look for those brands or the Akai ones, I see those went cheap for $5 dollars, grab them before they become relics.
