Hello ElleBayar2011, welcome aboard! I do remember having problems with the sd being unreliable in vista. Are you going into usb mode before plugging in to the pc? Are you using a 1gb or less sd? Have you tried a different usb cord? I assume you dont have a diffrent OS to try on so maybe start the suite in xp compatablity and as adminnistrator.

hi freddy,  i didnt have an sd card in them when attempting to connect them?,  i go to usb mode after i plug the usb cable in and yes its a 1gb sd ive tried putting the sd card in them all but to no luck, yep to a different lead, i wish i could run it in xp compat mode but the option is not there on right click!, tried version of suite that came on cd-rom and 2.4 nothing,  also when it is showing as a removeable drive i right click and select format and nothing happens? can you offer any more help?

thanks

Hi, try going to usb mode first before (not after) connecting the usb cable. So he will say "tether attached" in usb mode, then plug the usb cable to the bot and to the pc. To get to compatability tab right click and on the menu, click properties then find the compatability tab.
