    It maybe a firmware update, hence the cable needs this to be compatible with newer versions, so you must proceed with this 1st, if it is indeed this update that is.

    I had the update sent in a email notification a while back and did it...but ive never used it since.
    click usb and test says OK but further down says update needed.
    Do i go to ross tech and download again?

    Email notification, never had one of those ever, afaik RT don't email people with update advisories.

    As long as its genuine, remove the software, download from RT direct & install, then retest.

    All sorted. NHN you were right just a firmware update.i made the mistake by disconecting when i saw the "update" word.
    Thinking id need to be on the internet...the firmware update needs you connected to the car,and doesnt need a internet connection...suppose everyone knows that :redface:
