Download the Windows device driver from SCT's website and when it prompts you, select the driver you downloaded. It should work fine after that.

With the X2 unplugged, download and install liveload 3, you listed livelink which may be your problem.

Here is a link: http://www.sctflash.com/software/liveload131.exe

The thing you want to pay attention to since you mentioned used, is the device info. Power it up and scroll all the way down to device info, hit select, it will display firmware. What is that? Hit select again, and it will display changes left, and status.

If the status is not unused, you still have steps remaining. The dealer you purchased your custom tunes from should have already told you this, but if you need more help or have more questions, feel free to PM me or post it on here.
