Unhappy spartan help

i am trying to set my spartan up but keep getting the vin ref failed 02. i have formatted my sd card to my truck. set up a tranfer folder,added the three downloads to it then added to my sd and put it in the dashdaq then went to set up the three folders from the sd to dashdaq but the vin one keeps failing. i added the other two succesfully but when i go to uninstall they are not there. and it shows no tunes. i am no computer guy but it seemed to go ok? i have no idea

Cant help u bud, but this does help me decide on which tuner i will be getting. I know the spartan is said to be a great tuner, but just seems to complicated.
Good luck homie.
