@slappynuts, I had the same, and after contacting the seller I tried to repair it with another usb cord. It did not work, but then the seller paid for return shipping and send me a new cable free of charge. He would then examine the cable himself too to find out the problem. My new cable works perfect again  Smiley

A quick look and a little solder action and this one is back in action. This FTDI chip does look like the real deal (laser etched).

From what i can tell its been more than a month since anyone has given notice as to which is a good cable to buy so i thought i would ask if anyone has bought a working cable that they would recommend/share a link or somethin. From reading the thread I hope all the bad cables are a thing of the past but i doubt it.
So far this is what i know from reading the entire thread and i hope this helps put it all together in a nutshell for others just starting out like me
 
looking for a
FTDI FT232R or FT232RL (L = Lead Free) chip KKL 409.1 OBD2 / ISO 9141 USB Cable

-What to Avoid

FT232B or FT232BL these dont have a reprogram-able chip that is needed by various software that identifies the cable and is also needed by Nefmoto for premium features to work
CH340 Chipset =  bad, cant remember why just now but you dont want this

-What to look for
FT232R or FT232RL Must be a genuine FTDI chip or it will die with updated drivers also the R variant is reprogram-able which is needed for some software and Nefmoto for premium features
LM339 chip-set = good, this is the one to get

Well so far thats what i have i cut out alot of the why's and tried to keep it simple
would appreciate it if anyone has bought a working cable recently if they could post a link, I finally have some time and money to get working on this car of mine and want to get started right away

You could have better spent that time buying a cable that suits your needs and start tuning Grin If you have doubts, look for sellers previously mentioned and write them your q's Roll Eyes

I got KKL cable off ebay and driver installed is CH340. Nefmoto doesn't show it under interfaces. Is it any good or I should consider it as a donation to Chinese economy?

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but BMW K+DCAN cables usually have the FT232RL chip, as I don't think the CH340 works with the BMW INPA software. I've used one on a Subaru for SSM K line, and it worked fine for logging. They do tend to sell for a tad more than the knock off KKL cables though.

I have BMW diagnostic cable and it works for reading and writing tunes. The sad part is that I cannot do any logging with this cable.
