Uploading tune to Predator

Tom sent me a revised tune for my SVT but I can't get it to load on the Predator, when I try to send the file I get this message :

"A valid base file could not be found (ujahas3.frg) You need to specify the location of this filename. If you don't have a ori file, you can use the 'Get Tune File from Predator' button to save the backup file from the tool as the base ori file.
This warning can be avoided by making sure the ujahas3.frg file is in the directory.
Do you want to specify a different file to use as the base file?"

I tried different baud rates without success, it really looks like I'm missing a file. Here's what I'm doing :

1: On the Predator go to "Options" then "Custom Tune", then select "Import Custom Tune". On the next prompt do NOT hit "Continue", yet.

2: Then in your Predator PC Interface (DS downloader) software on your PC, click "Send File", select the file that you saved that you wish to use, and click on "Open". A "File Transfer Status" dialog box will open up.

3: On your Predator hit "Continue" (Enter). This will start transferring the file.

Thought I'd post cause I'm probably not the first one who encounters that problem.

I found out that "compressed send" needs to be UNchecked, didn't see that in the instructions, maybe it should be added.

I wouldnt get rid of the RPM Limiter it can be moved up a little but that isnt real safe either

The Predators are now 375.00 and take about 8 to 9 Min to load

What is the rev limiter on your tune Tom? Your adjustments seem to have worked btw, it drops to idle almost immediately after starting.
