SCT Livewire freezing

I tried to reload my 210 tune today and my Livewire would freeze and beep repeatedly at 99% during the set up storage part. I let it beep for about 10 minutes and unplugged it. I tried to load the extreme tune and same issue. I change tunes about every 6 months. Otherwise the Livewire is sitting in the closet collecting dust. I would appreciate any ideas or guidance you might have. It is out of warranty by a few months.

A few have said bumping it pretty hard helps. A defect part or something inside comes loose

I am going to call SCT today and hopefully they have an answer or will just chime in on this thread. I have tried loading three different tunes and it freezes at the end of each.

Does the device say anything like detecting memory? When does the device beep at you?

It beeps with my210 tune during the set up storage phase. With the other tunes, it is during the building tune extraction file phase.

It doesn't say anything about detecting memory. Thanks for your help.

It is fixed! The guys at SCT talked me trough my issue (firmware and faulty cable). They were great to work with and I appreciate their help!
