First off, calling Abbott tech support only gets a sales pitch for their branded Cable for more than twice the price.Works fine with the Copilot Freestyle Freedom Lite Co-Pilot software. Download the driver from the suggested website and follow the steps that the reviewer Exiles posted (Instructions Follow).:1. Went to the Freestyle Web site and downloaded the Copilot Program.2. Went to the Web Address that Wishinglee included with the cable, and got the Drivers for WIN7.3. Installed the Drivers, plugged in the Cable only (make sure the plus are fully seated), opened Device Manager, and setup the USB and COM Port updates.4. Installed the Copilot Program, connected the Meter, but got data error- unable to read.5. Went to DataEntry on the top bar, selected Assign Default Device, Set to COM5 and restarted PC.6. Hit the Read Device and all was well.
I bought the Freestyle Freedom Lite Glucose Meter.1. Then I went to the Freestyle Web site and downloaded the Copilot Program.2. Then I went to the Web Address that Wishinglee included with the cable, and got the Drivers for WIN7.3. I installed the Drivers, plugged in the Cable only (make sure the plus are fully seated), opened Device Manager, and setup the USB and COM Port updates.4. I installed the Copilot Program, connected the Meter, but got data error- unable to read.5. I went to DataEntry on the top bar, selected Assign Default Device, Set to COM5 (on my PC).6. Hit the Read Device and all was well.
Following the instructions for installation of software and drivers is clearly important, but the instructions are well written - agree with the manufacturer here it is important to know your system - 32 bit or 64 bit OS, USB 2.0 or USB 3.0? A bit of homework perhaps, but even with searching I had the cable fully functional in about 20 minutes.Biggest complain here seems to be not being able to find the CoPilot software - I tried leaving a link to the download in my last review but that is not allowed, so all I can say is that both the US (mg/dl) and International (mmol/L) versions _ARE STILL AVAILABLE_ for download, however can no longer be downloaded from the Freestyle website - again, some google searching required.Any way, thank you Washinglee for saving me about $20 on buying the cable directly from Abbott! Quality product!
