    The problem is you bought a cheap one & most likely the drivers dont like the cable or the cable is goosed, sorry cant help further, I sell the genuine kits in case interested that will always work, albeit at a higher price, but get what you pay for is the key here mate

    hey rob

    with these sort of things, I would not trust any of the dodgy stuff off eBay.
    I bought my cable from NHN recently - opened the box, downloaded the software and was up and running in minutes -- no fecking about with anything.

    I even have it running on Mac OSX!

    Spend the money - it is worth every bit - especially compared to what you can pay for service items etc...
    The dodgy gear is like having a supermodel girlfriend and never being able to shag it!



    pdt.

    Couldnt say it better myself & without blowing my own trumpet, the genuine kit just works & if we were to compare the cost of the audi equivalent which is 5-10k & then also the audi hourly rates the price for this unit is pittance, really justifies itself within 10 minutes of usage IMHO.

    Also given some of those birds are like twiglets, you'd be worried about breaking the woman, lol, although the Victorias Secret show I watch every year is outstanding, truly, phoarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Well got it to work finally with a little help from my bro. main reason it did not is because the usb drivers where out of date and would not reconise the unit.

    Just need to figure out how to use it now.
