So my tuner just sent me over my first .bin file to flash to the car but i cant get nefmoto to see the vagcom cable, ive done everything the nefmoto beginner guide said to do and vcds lite is working fine with the same cable, same ecu ect... im doing this on a 02 s4 in the car, not bench.

So did you make sure the cable is in dumb mode?   So does nefmoto detect the cable?  So does it show in the listbox of cables to choose from?

Edit:

After re-reading (sorry I was fixated on how your sentence started with so) you are using VCDS lite, which only requires a serial device (com port) to connect.   Nef requires an FTDI based cable.  SO your cable probably won't work.  So you need a cable such as this:

It doesnt show in nefmoto at all. the drop down box is empty.
Dumb mode? I thought that was only for authentic rosstech cables not ebay vagcom

refer to my post above... you need an ftdi based cable, such as the one in the ebay link.

Nefmoto does not support CH340 cables.

I have the correct cable now, I went through the complete setup. it works on vcds lite, me7logger and it connected the first try with nefmoto flasher but got stuck before 1% even came up and then it wouldn't even connect every other try so for now I went back to my buddies rosstech cable to get the ecu flashed properly but I need to get my ebay ftdi cable working

Post log from nefmoto software, that would be a good start to find the solution Smiley
