"I also have had nothing but good experiences with Insulet and the older generation and new generation Omnipod systems. I am now in my 4th month with the new pods and have not had a single priming failure or site failure or malfunction of any kind.…"
"If needed, shave the areas where you place the pod. A rotary electric shaver works great. This will improve adhesion to the site.
Don't use antibacterial soap unless indicated by physician. You want your skin to maintain healthy, noninvasive…"
"Interesting- I tried last year a W7 VM with Parallels, VMware, and Virtualbox and they all crashed and wiped out the OmniPod. Also the new Dexcom software stopped working - could not recognize the G4 device.

"I think there is a (subtle) problem with the way the Omnipod software uses USB communication. For instance, running the software on a VM (virtual machine) completely crashes the PDM- everything is wiped out and you have to reprogram all the…"
"I have a MacBook Air (mid 2011) running OS X 10.8.4 and run Parallels 7 from an external HDD with Win7 VM. I run Co-Pilot on there just fine... I told the port selector wizard in Parallels when you plug in a new device to only use the PDM with…"

"I read in the omnipod extension guide on the internet that the Omnipod will not download anything until it has a 24h period in data. So Tomorrow I will check to see if that was what was wrong here with mine. I hope so. $5 grand is a bit much if the…"
"I also have a mac hubby still likes windwos so we loaded the software onto that, not showing up any of the BG I put in, now wondering I am only playing with it, I do not have a pod on since my training date is in 2 weeks. but I put in my blood…"
"I have to shave my belly and the back of my arms with a Philips rotary shaver before affixing a new pod. I also use Hypafix tape: Hypafix dressing retention tape
I swim and it still stays on, but shaving is a must."
"First, I am "a bit slow" on computer lingo...so, what do you mean by "run a VM"? I have a MacBook Pro with Core i5 processor. I could not get the software to download when I first received the UST400 (the first time I tried it…"
