the tuner saves the stock file so you can return it to stock. You need to go to the website and download the 3 things onto your computer BEFORE you plug you sct into your computer

got to SCT Automotive Performance Products then go to the tech support header near the top center of the page. once on the tech support screen go to the device updates and downloads header. scroll down and select your device, which will be X3-P/N 3000. and then Windows device drivers. Then go through the process again and download the device update software. And then again for the Firware update if you don't currently have the most current firmware.

You actually want to download the device update software first

Have you plugged the tuner into you computer before you downloaded everything?

When I bought my LiveWire, they had me download the drivers and everything before I ever received it.
