Well i have a genuine vagcom cable bought off a friend of mine. I had to buy a Serial to USB lead.

Before registering with vagcom i did the test and it recognised my ECU and would connect fine.

A month later i have bought vagcom, now when i try to connect it to the car, it says interface not found!! I cant see anything that has changed in that time.

Im thinking that (even though i installed it before) that there is a problem with the driver of the USB to Serial lead.

I did some checking on uk-mkivs and ive made sure that vagcom and the USB are on the same COM - Com3, And changing the COM's doesnt work,

Anyone had this before or any ideas what to do? Pulling my hair out here! Not really great with PC's either so any help appreciated.

Thanks

It does sound like a driver prob,

what version of vagcom are you using?

you want to s elect "usb" rather than "com1,2,3,4 etc"

Some older versions of vagcom dont come with the "usb" setting just "com1-com4"

i had this problem when i downloaded the wrong freeware version off of rosstech's website, it didnt come with the usb option so i downloaded a newer version.
