    Which cable I have?

    Hello!
    My friend buy cable. CD have application ross-tech VCDS, but not work. I tried a lot of different versions of applications and drivers but all of it give me an error "Interface not found" after clicking "Test".
    Looks like he buy not original cable, because it haven't any labels.

    You need original cable with original software.

    That is the only thing you need.

    If the cable came with a CD, it is not a genuine Ross-Tech interface. No CD is necessary if you have the real cable because you can always download the latest version of the program from the internet. In short, your friend wasted his/her money. What you have is probably a generic OBDII to USB interface (if you are lucky). It might work with VCDS-Lite on some older VAG products.

    Have Fun!
