Ive searched and searched and cant come up with a solution to my problem... I like many bought one of the ebay usb vag-com cable that claims its compatible with 409.1. I connected the usb to my computer and used the download as the drivers for the device. Now everytime i try to test the device i get a Rosstech usb interface not found error message. What do i have to do to correct this problem. The older versions of vag-com dont seem to be usb compatible. help a brotha out.
Thanx in advance

well i dont think you can do usb with the ebay cables. if you do you have to trick the computer somehow. i had this problem and i didnt want to deal with trying to make it work, so i bought the real rosstech stuff instead. works perfect for me now.

i purposely avoided the usb ebay versions and bought a serial port ebay version for this reason (as well, usb versions' conections may not be as stable).....

USB works fine for me, but I'm using the v3 version, not v4.

dude, sell that cable on ebay and get yourself a parallel port cable. much easier. do you have the full version of vag-com?

Do a Serial Connection with that USB, Meaning you have to tell the software that it's a serial connection. I am doing that with a USB cable from Ebay. Go to options in your programs and select com2 instead of USB. then see what happens.
