    So I have an ADS interface which connects to some modules, but not all. I was able to connect to the ABS, central locking and clocks. It might connect to others, but I haven't tried it. Main problem is that it doesn't connect to the DME.

    When selecting Engine-> DME 3.31 for M50 2.5 l, it thinks for 1 sec and then I get this error: "Data transmission to control unit disturbed". Close this one, another one pops-up, saying "DM331K20 not found".

    I have the ediabas.ini set for ADS, I think (interface =ADS). Do I need to edit any other .ini files? Or do I have to do some specific settings to the COM ports? I also heard something about copying a specific .ini file to Sytem32 in Win, but can't remember which one exactly.

    Anyway, any hints greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Gab

    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    Are you sure a 3.31 is fitted? Have oyu tried clicking on a few other DMEs to see what happens?

    Hello Gab,

    Let’s look at the second error first, which will help narrow down the problem of the first error. As you can diagnose other control modules, we can rule out any problems with your configuration settings (.ini).

    This error means that Ediabas is looking for an ECU description file (SGBD) called DM331K20.prg, in your ECU folder (C:\Ediabas\ECU). I’m guessing it’s not there, so here it is: https://www.rapidshare.com/files/104...2/DM331K20.zip

    Run the test again, and let us know how you get on.

    this may sound daft but have you tried it wiv the ms41 dde for the m50 unit?and have you got the ignition in position 2?

    and your sure it has an m50 power unit fitted?

    that fault indication is wot you usually get when you try and connect to the wrong dde engine control unit...

    Not actually 100% sure, but it's the only DME suitable in the list (only DME for 2.5L engine).

    I have checked for the file to be there, and it is. Perhaps different version of DME? It's not the OEM DME, it came from a 12.1992 325i automatic. I also have another DME, closer to the manufacturing date of my car (my car - 03.1993, the DME - from a 02.1993 325i sedan). Same story with both DME's.

    I get this error even without having the ADS interface connected, it makes no difference if I connect the cables or not. Same. This is what I found on this error:

    "This problem can occur with XP computers with the OBD interface.
    Reason: With Windows XP, it is not possible to automatically set the receive and transmit
    buffers using OBDSetup.exe, like in Windows NT.
    Solution: Set the receive and transmit buffers to 8 as shown in the following:
    Use Start My Computer Control Panel System Hardware Device
    Manager Ports (COM & LPT) and then click with the right mouse button to call
    up the properties of the COM port that is being used. Under the Port Settings tab,
    set the Data bits of the receive and transmit buffers to 8."

    I've done that for COM1, however, I don't know how to check what COM the ADS is installed on?

    Absolutely sure it's an M50B25 vanos in there. And defo Bosch DME 0 280 200 413. IIRC, the MS41 was for the newer 2.5, only sold in US? M52B25. Anyway, I have tried other DME's, same results.

    How do I check the COM for the ADS? And also, I found an OBD.ini online, any idea where that is supposed to be copied?

    Holly crap, no! Although, that would make my car an awesome 223bhp 2.2L!

    P.S. Anyone has a link to an older version of INPA? Like v3.01 or similar. Or better yet (because apparently it works better on old cars) link for GT1? It seems like loads of people have this issue with INPA and ADS interface when trying to connect to DME 3.1.

    3.01 probably will be better, It is mostly in English, as also has a quick ID and Quick fault code check function.
    I've got it installed, but it's been here on my PC for years, and the installer has long since been deleted.

    Are you using a true ADS interface via RS232 Serial?
