I have installed the drivers (shows o bytes used for memory. And the program, first time I connected it it could not read anything, uninstalled. Went to PA Soft and downloaded the trial version went thru and installed that version, Now it says device not ready. I let it sit for a beer break tried it again and still says device not ready. I am using a older dell laptop with XP pro, no anti virus no inter web, I even tried a different cable than came with it. After three days I am about to go insane, set it up on a buddies comp and worked the first time. Any thoughts as to what moronic thing I am doing wrong?
you need to actually hook up the scanner to your car to ready the device and get past that screen....otherwise the scanner doesn't get any power. give that a try and report back.
