What obd port are you using? Your car, like mine, requires that we use the round 20 pin port under the hood. So you need an adapter. But I don't think using the wrong port would cause it to say no hardware found. Just follow the PDF on installation instructions exactly the way it says on the cd provided. So I'm assuming you have installed the necessary drivers right? And the network and wireless connection is disabled?

Ebay link for 20 pin adapter:
