Hey all-

I'm planning on running vag-com on my ride for the first time today. I have a few questions about getting it going.

First, I may have a slight problem... On the version that I have (409.1), It doesn't appear to support a USB cable. It supports com 1-4, but there is no USB option. Does this mean that I won't be able to use my ebay knockoff USB cable? Is there something that I can install to make this version accept a USB vag-com cable?

Also, my software is registered, but is there any other preparation that I need before I can actually run the scan?

What blocks should I scan?

Thanks in advance for your help. I know you might think this is a dumb question, but I'm new to this sort of thing, so I figured you would be the right people to ask.

there are two different versions of 409.1

one for USB com and one for Serial Com
