can u post a pic of the usb/serial converter? (or type out the name/model/etc whatever is written on it)

 

might be able to track down drivers online. once youve installed the drivers, it will "create" a COM port whenever its plugged in (you need to check out port number in device manager...control panel->system->hardware->device manager and expand ports).

 

you wont need the cd after that. then its a matter of getting some consult software if you havent (eg http://www.ecutalk.com), and making sure u connect to the COM port thats setup for your usb/serial adaptor, often it will be COM4 for usb/serial (COM1 for normal onboard serial ports)

Have a word with Danny from DTA or eric lymon, I'm sure by now they have developed a USB version of the old parallel cable.

 

Not used mine for 3 years due to it being off the road, but I know the cabel itself can be a little temremental at times.

Hey StellaZ,

 

Most USB converters can be used with generic "usb/rs232 converter drivers" downloadable from the net. However, our ConZult software may have problems with it. The latest approved version of the diagnostic software is v2.3 - this is optimised for use with a USB converter. Older versions tend to freeze when accessing certain screens.

 

If the ConZult equipments isn't yours perhaps you can ask the owner to contact me and purchase a USB converter (with drivers) = £15. If the owner is registered he/she will also receive a free copy of the latest software.

 

If you have any further questions please let me know.

 

Regards,

 

Dan
