Hi - I originally purchased iWork in a box, is it possible to convert to the MacStore so I can download updates & recover through that?  I recently had a harddrive replaced and need to re-install...would prefer to keep it all on MacStore so future recoveries don't require digging up the old DVDs...and any updates all come from one place.

    Unfortunately, you can't turn a DVD purchase into an App Store purchase without purchasing the iWork applications again in the Mac App Store. However, note that the iWork DVD version and the iWork (Numbers, Pages and Keynote) verison available in the Mac App Store are the same, unless you have in a DVD a iWork version older than '09. In this case, you should consider the option to purchase the iWork apps from the Mac App Store
