SCT X4 & Windows 8

Got a new windows 8 laptop. loaded the sct updater and live link Gen II. It was okay until I plugged in my sct device. Windows 8 can't seem to detect the X4.

Has any of you experienced this? solutions?

Thanks!

I had the same problem where my sisters laptop wouldn't detect the tuner. She has a dell with windows something (not sure what version). I have to use my work computer to do anything like that now. Call SCT their customer service should be able to help you out though.

Same thing for me, widows 8 wouldn't detect my tuner. I had to dig out my old xp to get it done.

I updated my X4 using wifi. Then connected to it my windows 8.1 laptop, never had any issues with it being detected. It would take several tries before the SCT software would recognize the X4. I have the same issue on Windows 7.

I just went through this on my Win 8 laptop. You need to update the drivers for the SCT software to work. I would link to the driver download, but I'm on my mobile. You can find it via google though. If you still need help I can walk you through it when I get home from work.

That would be great ToP.

SCT's hotline sucks. Minimum 30mins waiting time.

Check to see if it's a USB 3.0 port. (Colored blue) , if it is, it's going to be iffy. If you have another USB port like a 2.0, (black) that should work better.

This walk through is pretty easy to follow, but if you need more help I can walk you through it.

Thanks ToP, FastFord & joey!

Sorted it out. Thanks to Ken & and most of all to Jr of MPT. They did a remote access in my PC and solved the problem. Thanks again MPT team!

all your recommendations actually works. But the thing is, the system needs to detect the device first so the first thing that needs to be done is to make sure to try different usb cables in different usb ports. Thanks again guys!
