SCT Issue

I'm having a bit of a problem with a used x3 I just purchased. I plug it in and SCT updater only recognizes the tuner for about a second and then it says "connect tuner". If I unplug it and re plug it in same scenario. Anybody tell me what's up?

Go here and DL the latest one:
Uninstall all the SCT drivers that's on there currently before you install the new one. It sounds funny, but try a few different USB ports...sometimes it magically works...
