SCT troubles

So I'm trying to update my SF3/X3 tuner. Plugged it into my laptop, a little window popped up, can't remember what it said, then it went away. Went to SCT website to install software to update and the link is dead; it just loaded a blank page. So not only can I not get the software in order to update my tuner, I'm not entirely sure that my laptop recognizes that the tuner is there....although it makes a sound when i plug it in and unplug it. Any tips here?

Actually I found and installed the updater, but now it's not recognizing the tuner. An error message pops up shortly after clicking "automatically check for updates".

call SCT and they can remote connect to your laptop and manually install drivers and update everything for you. Thats what i had to do for mine.

I just read to put the stock tune back on the car before I do any updates. Any truth to this?

Yes, you must return to stock tune to update.

Car is returned to stock and still getting the same message, although now have the option to update firmware...no idea what that means.

You return to stock so if something happens during the update process you won't destroy/lose your stock tune. That's what happened to me, laptop took a dump during update and I had to use another computer. Call SCT and they can connect to your computer and do everything for you.

That's exactly what ended up happening. I hate Windows 8. Thank you everyone for the input.
