    Hi all I have got a version vag software and also a USB obd2 cable labeled elm327
    But when I plug it in and try and connect to the car is seems to just cycle through all the connection numbers and not do anything is it because of this cable or not or am I just doing something wrong, I mean I have worked in it for 10 years and this just not seem to make any seance the car is a W plate 1.8 Quattro

    VCDS is the best but if you look in the FAQ thread in the stickies I have linked to an eBay cable that can be used with VCDS lite in the 'please read before posting' thread

    need to find out what port the cable is on , and change this in vcd , when you plug the cable in did it ask to load a driver ?

    you using 64bit version of windows? could be a driver issue... you can force VCDS to install as 32bit IIRC... not tried it as not had an issue with drivers on a genuine cable..
