Default Datalogging Cable not connecting

I just bought a cable off of Xenocron and I cant get it to connect right with freelog. When I plug it into my COM ports it never changes? It also says COM10 no matter what COM I put it in. When I plug in my burn1 to different COM's it says all different numbers like usual. Anyone have any ideas?

Those drivers for the USB cable hard to install right. Are you using Windows XP? What I do is use my lower USB port for the Burn1 and the upper USB port for the logging. I get errors when constantly unplugging each port so just assign a device to a port and always use that port, ie. (upper and lower).

im using windows vista. could that be the problem? The drivers iinstalled when i plugged in the cable. should they be installed manually? If not should i just memorize the com port and mark the correct com port as the datalogging cable?
Thanks

how about you ask ghettoturbo/xenocron and make sure you can have it as vista compatible?

Here are install procedures. It's funny, I don't want to get a new computer just because its going to have Vista on it. Boo

If you still cant get it to work try Freelog V1.0.78. I've had good luck with it. If you cant find it send me a PM and I'll email it to you. Also there is a setting in Freelog that wont capture data until the car is at operating temp so I just simply set that value to 0.

Vista has severe COM port issues.

Give me the make and model number of your laptop. I might be able to slipstream your drivers onto an XP install disc, problem solved.
