    Try 18.9.1
    Try different car to be sure that it's not a problem with cable.

    It would also be helpful to know what kind of cable and what kind of car.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    If it has a software version number (e.g. 18.2) on the interface, there's a 99.999% chance of it being an illegal clone.

    If you want support it's time to buy a genuine cable
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here...

    Any cable that comes with a CD is almost certainly a clone - because it can only work with the hacked version on the CD.

    Genuine VCDS is free to download and update as long as you own the cable, so there is no need for a CD

    I believe some of our distributors do still ship CDs. I'm not sure why they do that since it's been quite a few years since laptops came with optical drives. However, none of them use little "Panda" CDs.
