I noticed this, and just got my pump. The first time that went off I wanted to change it, this is excelent news the only thing I didn't see in this was how do I get EZ manager do I have to plug the pump in? Does it go through the Meter?
Yup, Fur Elise does get a bit old, eh? I, too, got rather tired of it so I dove into changing the tunes. First you need to load all of the software onto your computer. I run with Ez Manager and the song writer. You also must have the little IR transmitter that has a USB connector. It is the only way to communicate with your pump. There is a small clear plastic window on the back of your pump at which you must aim your IR transmitter when you are ready to upload or change your tunes. There are quite a few tunes already available that can be selected/uploaded. Or, if you have the patience, you can write your own tune and upload it. I actually did this and it is pretty funny. Ha! You have four different alarms which you can re-assign tunes to. All of this is pretty well covered in your manual but may be a bit tricky. The biggest pain was when I tried uploading and the IR transmitter had to be precisely aimed at the back of the pump during the entire upload. It might take several minutes, but it is worth the effort. Let me know how you do and I'll try to help if you have woes. All the luck, Jack
