Hondalogger wont connect to PC

Post by TurboPreludeSi » Tue Sep 17, 2002 10:14 pm

I am currently using an IBM pentium 3 laptop with windows xp to use on my hondata 4b. I cannot get it to connect to hondalogger though. I have the PC cable ran from the hondata box to the lap top, the honda red light is on, i turn the PC on, i start the car, i open the hondalogger program, i choose obd1 ecu and then i click connect. It says "connecting" for 3-4 minutes, shouldnt it connect sooner? What could be wrong?

2 things what version hondata do you have ?

pc stuff: are you sire something else has not got hold of the come port ?

if you have the s200 unit have you made sure you have unlocked the datalogger with your code via software

you can try going into settings in the file menu. Select the record tab, and try changing the com #'s. Just make sure you disconnect, and reconnect each time you change the com#. Also, I think you have to disable the FIFO buffer.

i cannot connect hondata to the PC either.. i have tried using win 95 and a win 98 box.. but it does the same thing with each computer..(error can't connect .. or acts like it connects but just sits there with the "connecting" message up.) i have changed connection settings in dataloging software and have purchased several types of cables including the null modem cable and still nothing.. i dont konw what to try next..
