I had a cable which I got off a member on here. I then downloaded the VCDS lite software today, installed that but whenever I plugged my cable in to my laptop (windows xp) it would say error installing.

I found out the cable is Ft232r usb uart.

I googled that and found some drivers. I then installed these when the hardware installation pop-ups. I then ran the software, it seemed to find the cable on COM port 3. But still no luck.

It says there is an error to do with communication.

However, if I unplug the cable and then try to run the software, i get the same error even though it is not even connected to the car!

Please advise me as to what I should try next. Have spent all of this morning trying to get it to run [:(]
