Hi,

I installed VCDS on old laptop and thought I’d try it out. Was working fine. The laptop battery went from 50% to dead in the blink of an eye and shut down whilst it was communicating. I disconnected etc. On charging and reconnecting I find that the connection will open to show modules, but will not open them to change anything. Carista works fine, so I don’t thinks it’s the car. Any suggestions please?
Thanks.

What kind of cable do you have and where did you buy it?

If You use legitimate V2 unit, serial number looks like: H11-01001 for example and you can see it on label.
