Hello

I was quite unlucky when I had my precious vag-com cable in my computer bag on a ship over night, the next morning the ship was under sea... :banghead:

I think managed to clean up the cable (yet to try it on a car, but VCDS recognizes it) but I'm afraid it'll die sooner or later.

Is there any way to create a backup so I can replace the chips if it'll die and then restore the backup? I'd prefer not to buy another one. It's so expensive nowdays with expensive Norwegian kroner, and I'm just a lousy student. :cry:

Uhm... You're asking us how to "Clone" the cable? :rolleyes:

I don't think you're going to get any useful advice in this regard. :D

Was there also a computer in the bag? How did it make out?

And how about the people on the ship?

As for your interface, if it dies, we will find a way to replace it at reasonable cost.

I understand.

Computer died.

No one was on board at night.

How much $ are we talking replacing if it dies?

$129 US, but if it's not dead yet, chances are it will be fine.

You sure? Not the greatest pictures tho. Notice the holes inside the LED-pins.

This was before I cleaned it up tho. I havent had the time to try it on a car...
