    I have recently received a SD3 tester, this is the second unit since the first was purchased some time ago and had a timer which counted down every thirty days and sometimes I would wait 60 days plus to get new subscription but enough of that. I would like to know if anybody has successfully used the SD2 emulation mode I do have a SD2 tester and have no issues with it but would like to be able to print documents as well as have the ability to use the SD3 in this mode for earlier cars I do realize I need to use serial port and the last tester I had I spent many hours without success of using this mode.

    Thanks in advance,

    Common communications problem in the SD2 emulation mode. Word of advice, hang on to your SD2. It is getting difficult to keep SD3'S running.

    RS232 has to be used with the #7 cable bundle.

    Emulation works.

    The use of the RS232 isn't the issue. The issue is that the pc SD2 program won't read off the software list from the tester, although it aknowledges that it's hooked up. I had exactly the same problem with mine, and i tried it on 3 RS232 equiped laptops. i eventually got mine going by wiping the tester and re-installing everything and also the PC software. That was several months ago and i haven't had a problem since. This isn't the fist instance i've heard about relating to the porting software.
