I tried that too and I still get same message. When I try communicate I get three yellow blinks and red one blinks all the time. I'm gonna try uninstalling it and reinstalling it.if its in windows 7 XP mode, go to the top of the windows xp mode window and attach the dice under usb if you havent. This happened to me once in xp mode in windows 7 and that fixed it.
here is an example:
I haven't tried reinstalling it yet, really don't wanna go through that again but it looks like ill have to.. Yeah I use same USB port.any luck? Maybe you can try it with another computer? I know this might sound silly, but is it in the same usb port as always or a different one?
