"communication error"

"Communication error-please check connections"

^^ OK. I have an X3 with livelink 4 whatever AND the newest 5 whatever on a diffrent computer.

Tom and I have alread done tuning with the version 5 software, he wanted me to go to the 4 version to try something.

Now here is my problem... AFTER I went to the ladder version I had yet to try and play with it...according to sct it's pretty well the same as 5....I don't really know.

So later in the week I had my USB cord plugged into my USB port thats in my computer. We had lighting strike around my house and I had a couple things fried in the house..computer wasn't one of them, thank god and lucky for me my x3 wasn't plugged in.

After I delt with what was damaged I got to a point to do some more tuning... I had V.4, I data logged came back and tried to load it onto livelink and the message "communication..." came up.


So this is what I've done so far... I went to another computer, loaded v.4 plugged my x3 in and samething. So I'm thinking it's my cable. Went to radio shake made sure I got the same cable...Samething. ugh. So now I'm playing with the program switching things around playing with it trying to make it work..nothing. The last time talk to tech support I had them help me with downloading the V.4... I told them about this problem and the guy just pointed the finger at my cable which like I've already ramblem about I've replaced and hasn't gotten me anywhere. So I went back to V.5. and guess what? samething!!!!


I'm starting to think it's my x3. I don't know what else to do and I don't know what else to try. I have tried doing diffrent things on livelink like getting my processor ID and it pretty well tells me the samething.


HELP!!!!!
