The only cable you need is a usb cable.

Where did you get the unit from? used? Is it a preloaded or custom tuned device? The part number on the bottome will tell you this. If you bought it used and it is a 3000 unit most likely the tunes on it, if any will not work for your vehicle.

What does the memory stick look like? It sounds like one of our advantage dongles.

No offense but you need to do some reading so that you know exactly what you bought...

You bought the pro racer package; if you lost the dongle you will need to find it as you will not be able to open your advantage software without it. A replacement will not be cheap.

Try loading the file to the device again. If it still does not work there are other items we will need to do...and one of which is to make sure Tom updates his software.
