OK, next problem:
I have started a new thread on this exact topic in the engines forum (not sure if that is the right place), but perhaps some of you who have commented on this thread might not spot it.
I'm trying to get MultiECUScan working on my new laptop. Its windows 8 and I can't figure out how to get the OBD interface usb cable to work...
I believe its an ELM327 cable, but I have an OBDII cable too (same problem).
In my device manager, its listed as a "USB Serial Port" and I can change the Com port number (I have it on 4 just now) and play with the speed settings etc, but MultiECUScan simply can't find the cable.
Do I need a different driver, or is 'USB Serial Port' the correct thing?
Has anyone successfully used windows 8 to communicate with a 159 1.9JTDm?
