Ummm I'm getting a communication error?
Make sure you are using the correct drivers
. The ones in "\EDIABAS\Hardware\OBD\USB2.0 Win XP" will not work because you are essentially using a third party cable. | MediaFire Mirror
FIFO must be enabled? Tx and Rx set to "8"?? The hell is this, I don't have these options in my COM settings?
The newer FTDI drivers
do not have this feature. It's fine. It'll work. Just lower latency to "1". Leave rest default. If you decide to get the drivers straight from FTDI, reference this post for some clarification
Hmmm still not working. What gives?

1.4 IFH-0003: Data transmission HOST/Interface failed
Reason 1: In the Ediabas.ini file, the interface is set to STD:OBD. However, you have connected an ADS connector.
Solution 1: Modify the interface setting.
Reason 2: The data transmission failed when sending (e.g. short circuit in the line).
Solution 2: Get rid of the short circuit, for example.
Reason 3: Connector not connected or no power supplied.
Solution 3: Check whether the connector is connected and is supplied with power.
Reason 4: The device manager has been used to disable the FIFO buffer for COM1.
Solution 4: In the device manager (Windows XP: Enter “Start” ; “Control Panel” ;“System”
; “Hardware” ; “Device Manager” ; Ports (COM & LPT)), and then select COM1 from the ports. Then under the “Port Settings” tab, select “Advanced”. There must be a check-mark by “Use FIFO buffers” and “8” must be selected for the receive buffer and transmit buffer.
