Hi. Im trying to get vcds to work again after some time with no problems. When U start vcds I'm told to test my interface. Doing it with success and being told to update the firmware on the interface. Now the problem occours. Vcds Interface config cant find the interface. It just tells me that an Interface has to be connected to run this program. What should I do?

In the device manager the interface can be found in the HID category. No problems with it. The LED flashes green from the beginning then blue.

You are a registered VCDS-Lite user. There is no firmware in an interface for VCDS-Lite.

Could it be that you have also purchased a clone/pirate interface for the full (non-Lite) version of VCDS? In that case, we would consider the fact that the firmware won't update a feature, not a bug. ;)

Blue light - Hex V2. I thought I'd ask about the serial number of the unit. ;)

You mean the internal one, or the one printed on the label that doesn't match the internal one? :rolleyes:

@j_elfstrom, please post interface photos but no internal one, the other one is interesting.

Be nice to know where the clone was purchased from?

@j_elfstrom probably worth contacting your local consumer protection people to advise them that the seller is selling counterfeit goods.
