The livewire and TSX use multiple files; livelink is just using the same dialog box for every device.

Once you import, press the max button at the top to see the entire log.

Not a fan of that idea. Laptops aren't exactly cheap enough to just sit on the passenger seat. I'd really just like to get it to work this way.

xcal3 and data logging question

Today I tried to do some data logging on my ride to and from work. However, when I got home, I went to look at the files through LiveLink. When I went to import the data log files from the xcal, it showed 9 files (despite only doing 3 tests ever), and all of them were blank except for the first one, which showed only 500 seconds, which wasn't the length of my last test, in fact it was the length of my first test.
None of the other tests were legitimate files, so I couldn't see the last two tests I did. Am I missing something?
