So I got my vida/dice stuff today (thanks for the recommendation TristanScott) and I just installed it and hooked it up to the caR. I'm not sure if I extracted something wrong or if I need to do something extra but I followed the instructions and it won't read. I have a red light on vehicle communication when I try to run the scan and the USB communication flashes yellow. The software is 2014D. Anyone have any ideas?

Did you have the dice unit powered up when installing the drivers?

Do you have multiple dice units showing in that drop down menu? For some reason my VIDA is stupid and has 3 different dice units listed, I had to experiment to find the right one and I have to select it every time.

Other than that the only time I've seen your problem is with a defective dice unit but then the lights didn't come on.

Did you contact Darius for help? He's been pretty quick to answer any questions I've had.

Have you run the test in DICE to make sure its communicating with the device and gotten an 'OK'? Need to be sure that part works before you can even think about talking to the car with it.

Every now and then when I restart my VM where my DICE lives, it isn't working and fails the communication test, but when I unplug it and then plug it back in that usually does the trick.

Did you select the DICE device in vmware and tell it to pass through into the virtual machine?

You have to have it plugged into the car with the power on, or run it with an external power supply if its set up for that for the computer to communicate, since the car/external power runs the device, not the USB power.

If that is the case, try unplugging and replugging the USB into the computer, that sometimes clears this up for me.
