    Ok bit of background, I have got vagom installed.

    I am using the usb cable and got vagcom from rosstech.

    I get the message when hooking it up Port status : ok, Interface not found

    Not sure how to trouble shoot it as I have tried all the com options and the only ones i get anything on is com4 and usb. But still not interface

    Is it a genuine rosstech cable or an aftermarket cable?

    Also when are you getting this message? Is it in the options section when running test? If so have you got the cable plugged into the car and the ignition on?

    No it is the one from ebay. I have followed the instructions and I am using 409-1.

    All the software is installed, I have had the usb cable running under com1 and com4 both times connected to the car.

    Have you checked which comm port the cable has been installed onto, one of my mates had this problem, it auto installed onto comm 8 which isnt an option on vagcom.

    Is the cable from Alpha Bid?

    You have plugged the cable into the car then turned the ignition on, gone into program options selected comm 4 and selected test and you are getting interface not found? Is this right?

    Is the led on the cable coming on when plugged in?
