Yet another satisfied customer of Vivian. Ordered the Looney Tune from her this morning. Took a while to get my SCT X3 updated. Just purchased it from a guy on the forum here.
Opened the box and pulled it out. I was excited.
But first things first.

Step one:
Download the updater software (that went fine).
Step two:
Download and install the firmware update(that went fine).
Step three:
Download and run the tuner revision software(that did not go fine)

I immediately went F*&k! x's 3 (Then a five minute rant with the neighbor. Meanwhile the neighborhood children all looked around and some even started to cry.lol)

Seeing how it is a Saturday, SCT's technical support lines are closed. I then proceeded to search the web for two hours looking for a clue as to what happened. I stumbled across the solution (I think). The error I was receiving stated something to the fact of SYSTEMERROR: BULK FILE blah blah blah.

So if anyone that has purchased a used SCT tuner product this fix is simple.

Step one:
Pull up the device updater via the desktop icon.
Step two:
Plug in tuner via usb cable.
***Step three:
Hold ALT CTRL F (simultaneously)
You will then be asked if you wish to format device (twice); press OK.
Step four:
Reinstall both the updated firmware and tuner revision software.
Step five:
Load your custom tune.
*** If you do this you need to ensure you back up you tune files BEFORE you format or they will be erased and lost.

I hope that this atleast helps one person.Have fun and enjoy. I know I did.
