use update from different country/region

Hello Everyone,

I bought a Megatouch Force Elite Edge with Software 2006 on it, itís in a very good condition and it was never in a Bar.

i have a few questions and i hope you can help:

To update or replace the software to 2011, I just need a Hard Drive and a Key from Ebay to do that right? i probably won't find a update dvd or so for my key SA3502-03 because i live in Switzerland.
on Ebay the keys have SAxxxx-01 on the ending for the country or region. Will that still work for me?
Do you guys have different language selection on your Megatouch?

I'm sorry for my noob questions  ;D

thanks Lion

you can set the language later. by default it's english.

I don't believe it really matters much. it's just so the software knows what region it is an knows what options to offer.

most of USA is SAxxxx-01 but some states have a different key number suffix (I belive SAxxxx-02) because they don't allow some forms of games. This is  because they are considered gambling (even though no money is won) so those states have some games like poker unavailable to play. there were also some online tournaments where you could win prizes. each area would have different prizes (or none at all) according to the local regulations.

as long as the key number matches what the software on the drive is expecting, it's fine.
