    Ids sdd

    I've found a seller on Ebay, who for £275 provides a PC & Mongoose lead set up with Iain Duncan Smith, and SDD pre loaded.

    Now, bearing in mind my well documented issues with the XJ (where I may, or not need to reprogramme an ECU) and in addition to this a seat module that needs a reflash on the XK, I am extremely tempted to part with the cash and have a dedicated Jaguar PC at home.

    Given that ...

    the original software was a free download
    the computer (and the system) doen't need to be an up-to-date one
    and
    even if the lead is a genuine one

    that seems, to me, to be quite a lot to pay.

    If you do decide to buy it then you should get the bendor to confirm whether the lead is a genuine one, or a Chinese knock-off (they have very poor reliability).

    Hi Patrick,

    Perhaps you could give me a link for a genuine lead? And direct me to the free download?

    In addition to this, from what little I have read, apparently the PC needs to be run on XP 32bit with service pack 3?

    Where would I download Windows XP with service pack 3 from?

    You appear to be more knowledgeable than myself on the matter. So some help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
    Thomas

    I bought mine from here a few years ago: http://britishdiagnostics.co.uk/prod...-sdd-v130-kit/

    Price has gone up since but comes with a cable and an XP virtual machine image with SDD installed ready to run on any PC. I must admit my cable did fail shortly after receiving but they quickly replaced it with a new one.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for that, greatly appreciated!

    So if I understand you correctly, I can run this virtual machine image on my existing Windows 10 Laptop?

    Cheers

    Yes that's correct (I do exactly that).

    Thank you Ben, I have ordered.

    If it sorts the passenger seat issue on my XK, it will have almost paid for itself in one hit (I was quoted £70).

    Cheers
