In reply to dgs:

If your refering to the Select Scheme, which I presume you are even though you don't mention it, then my understanding of the situation is that the updates that they provide are not *just* bug fixes but increased functionality.

Which is the distinction I was trying to make in my original post.

If the update from Castle was to fix a known bug in RO5.xxx then yes perhaps it should be free. However if the update was for something like USB2 support, as Druck pointed out, or something which adds value/functionality beyond the level if was at at time of purchase then they probably should/could charge for it.

For me personally though this is all academic as I don't own an Iyonix and won't be purchasing one in the near furture (a simple question of economics for me: (1 daughter+1 wife)/single income= no money for new computers!)
