power commander 3r error
before you tell me to search, i did. i bought a used power commander 3r and am having an issue with "file and PC versions incompatibe". please help me figure this out.
Heres what i can tell you:
commander is correct part # for my 2000 rc51
the maps and software installed are correct versions accoding to their website.
i can load/edit/save file into pc software.
the pc led's light up and the surface buttons work.
with the bike running, the display at the top will show rpm, tp, etc.
i have a cheapo usb-serial cable off ebay, and my computer recognizes it under COM3, as does the power commander software.
i cant upload or download maps to the power commander, and when i try to it gives me the "file and PC versions incompatibe" error that apparently is famous with these.
is my pc3r a bust? or do you guys think its a laptop issue? mac with windows installed btw.
