Hello Kelly Jo!
Thanks for this message. I am happy that you got a new hard drive and  
it is working great...;-)

The PocketPuddle can have a conflict with Skype. Did you know that?

Do you have Skype installed too?

So I would suggest that you download the document "PocketPuddle  
Manual QuickStart" on this web page:

SignPuddle Help

Scroll is in the middle of the page under Reference Manuals...

In the back of that QuickStart manual, there is an explanation as to  
how to make the PocketPuddle work with Skype still installed.

One person I know had to literally uninstall Skype before the  
PocketPuddle worked...

Please tell us what happens after that, because there may be other  
reasons as well...

Val ;-)
