    1. Password is incorrect

    2. The password is “correct” in the sense that if you try capital letters it will work…

      You should make sure you have installed the drivers first.

    5. Installing the drivers on Windows 7 does not work well (for the record) so one must go to manage devices and from there select to manually update driver. If the computer asks for DISK then you’re on the right path, else, inf files are not recognized by Windows and you’ll just be plain stuck.

      Speaking of being stuck – when I connect the device and run the tool, I get error:device not found message.

      Any clues as to what may be the cause of it?
