i just received my order of Elmscan 5 compact today. followed the instructions and everything worked good as far as OBDWiZ goes. installed other demo software suchas ScanMaster, ScanXL and Proscan and none of them would connect. they all see the COM port but unable to identify the interface. finally, i tried a demo software of PCMSCAN and that worked just fine. OBDWIZ and PCSCAN worked every time since this afternoon on my 2000 Acura 3.5RL, but not other software like i mentioned above.
