    i never had any experience with fine cut, but you and mimaki have yo follow the software agreement with finecut. you can try contacting them and making a "media replacement request" for lost or damaged disk. for can then offer to provide an "affidavit of destruction" which often satisfies the EULA. software agreements often restrict the wayba manufacturer can distribute software and drivers (hp is a prime example, carly fiarina thought she was saving money while she tried to single handedly destroy hp)

    again, no experience with mimaki or finecut, but i have done this MANY times with other manufacturers and software companies. give this approach a try, be ready with product key and possibly machine serial number. (is your machine registered to you on the website?)

    I have two suggestions: try and label a blank CD or a backup copy CD as FCCDv76_FCAIIv76
    (which translates as the initials of Fine Cut Corel Draw version 7.6 & Fine Cut Adobe Illustrator same version, but I can;t say why there are two Is or is it an eye and an el ?)
    Try serial issuance FC9-3650881. That's the number ours generated for me, but I don't know if it is locked to the hard drive serial number or anything like that. All I can say is it worked for me after I got the dot net 2.5 & 3.0 installed from the Win10 setup usb key.
    (FC didn't need net 2.5 & 3.0, but the serial number issuance program needed them)

    I will try this with the cd also. Distributor told me that the original cd can produce many serial numbers. The second method probably wont work, i think the serial is different on every pc despite using the same cd.

    Called distributor again and told me one more time that cannot replace but buy it again.
    In my opinion, finecut, cutting master and other dedicated software, should be machine serial related. If you have the cutter for example, just use the serial number and activate the software. That simple.

    Update - after a friend from here sent me an iso of the finecut, i mounted, and immediately the finecut 9 serial application provided me the serial. So probably it has to do with name of the cd.
    Thanks for everyone's help

    What is a "mounted ISO Disc Image"? What is this ISO you are all talking about?

    mount an ISO file means to access its contents as if it was recorded on a physical medium and then inserted in the optical drive. If you downloaded a software in the form of an ISO image and want to install it, mounting it will be faster and easier than recording it on an actual disc.
