    unable to upgrade Firmware HEX-CAN

    Hey there,

    Just retrieve my old HEX-CAN cable from the graveyard lol.
    Wanted to use it with the newest version of VCDS but I'm unable to update my firmware to 1.94 from 1.84.

    Can anyone help ???


    Thanks

    I doubt it. Post a picture of your HEX-CAN please.

    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.

    Didn't try another car but when I plug in the cable the light turn green confirming connection.

    Hello,

    The inline picture didn't come through properly, but I dug the URL out of the page source and took a look.

    That isn't a genuine Ross-Tech interface; it's a pirated clone. You won't be able to use it with VCDS.

    You can purchase a genuine interface and license here: Ross-Tech Store

    You're not the first, or the last... once you find your genuine interface, you can get properly registered for support and forum access.

    It's not my place to go into further detail, but I'm quite sure.
