    Unable to find .ROD file

    Hello everyone,
    i just purchased a VCDS from one local dealer and it doesnt seem to work as it should. Its my first time using something like this, so I have no idea about what problemes I may encounter.
    Story short; i get error Unable to find .ROD file, EV_DashboardVDDMQBAB 009040(Au37).

    It tells me to make an auto-scan and ask for support, so i did.

    Advanced identification:
    Code:
    Removed.  Data from a clone/pirate copy of VCDS is not acceptable here.

    My autoscan result looks like that:

    Code:
    Removed.  Data from a clone/pirate copy of VCDS is not acceptable here.

    Hi, I’m new here too so can’t answer your specific question, but when pasting an auto scan use the code tags so it appears in a box.

    What "dealer" did you buy it from? Somehow, I don't think it's one on this list.

    What you have there is a clone/pirate copy of one of our previous-generation interfaces that was originally sold in the Chinese market. Since you just bought it, you should return it and demand a full refund.

    Legitimate VCDS systems are available directly from us:
    https://store.ross-tech.com/shop/cat/VCDS

    ... Or from any of our authorized resellers:
    http://www.ross-tech.com/distributors.php

    Let us know if/when you get one and we'll adjust your forum status.
