Dig this - Datacolor and Spyder 3
Feb 25, 2011

I just did the Windows 7 SP1 upgrade. Showed an error on the Spyder elite3, so I downloaded the software from the datacolor site. Whoops, they want a number when you install the software that drives the unit I bought.

I go through all it takes to join their site, ask for help, then get this:

Thank you for your message and your faith in Datacolor products.

"Did you purchase your Spyder during the past year. Please send us a proof of purchase (invoice copy). We will then check it and send you a new serial number. If you don't have the invoice anymore, let us know the serial number of your Spyder hardware (on a sticker on the USB-plug) and send us a picture showing your Spyder hardware, all your other "Spyder-leftovers" together with your business card, ID or drivers license."

What kind of shakedown is this? What are they trying to prove? I must be missing something.
