3. How to solve "unknown communication error" for MB STAR Benz software?
Recent days one of our customer meet this problem. He bought the star C4 two years ago, on March 2013. He can use the old software to diagnose Benz E212, recent days, he bought a new 2014.12 C4 hdd to replace the new one. But when use new software hdd diagnose this car, it give "unknow communication error" prompt just like the following photo, Why this happen?
Reason: This firmware is too old, too old firmware cannot work on latest software perfectly. Such as E212,207, 222,205, for these vehicles, better to use the new firmware version MB SD C4 (Item number SP100-D) to test. Because when factory develop the new software, they will add some old car to the new software, and will cancel it for old machine.
