SCT X3 Problems

I have a SCT X3, i downloaded the Updater off of SCTFlash.com but when i try to load a tune it says "Failed to read Device" and then says unauthorized device or something like that. I tried to reinstall the updater but it didn't help any. any suggestions?
Thanks
Bryan

Bryan, what you need to do is go to device manager on your PC and install the drivers for this device. here is a link to show you how to load the drivers and install the device updater. http://www.sctflash.com/software/SCTDeviceUpdater.exe

I had the same problem...my desktop kept doing that so i used a newer laptop and it worked fine. Is the programmer powering up? It would not power up on my desktop for some reason...
