While you could find that retyping all the code by hand can be a rewarding experience, if you are a fast typist that is, you are more likely to find comfort in knowing that all the book examples, code and resources are readily available for you to download.
Fork or Clone a Git repository: PIC24uMediaCode Repository
This way not only you are going to obtain a copy of each file and resource needed, but you will also get it pre-configured as a local git repository. In the future you will be able to Pull down updates as I will be posting them.
You can also start developing your own branch to fix bugs or add features and share them with other users and back to me.
Additional repositories offering (partial) ports to other Mikromedia boards:
Mac users could also find useful a HID-Bootloader application compatible with the default bootloader built in the PIC24 Mikromedia boards.
