What type of programmer do you have on the truck now? i have tried to download some tunes from other tuners and it wont connect if there is a "piggyback" type of tuner. If your computer setup is ok, it will read any type of "flashed" tune. someone help me out here.

Normally its just Vista that has Driver problems. Does the Flashscan turn on when you plug it into your computer?

Alright. Did you download the EFILive 8.1 build yet? If not download that and install that and open it up and there is a spot to update Firmware. I was having the same problem last week. The Flashscan needs to be updated.
