2016.03 MB Star SD Connect C4 solid drive vs.hard drive

Classé dans : car diagnostic tool — carsets @ 5 h 50 min

Mercedes Benz MB Star diagnostic MB SD C4+ 2016.3V 256GB SSD + Dell D630 Laptop 4GB new package is available,cause some customer feedback than HDD runs slower. Software pre-installed.


First, HDD vs SSD

This will help learn that why to run XENTRY /DAS with SSD; that is, the benefit of star software.

Stands for 2016 Xentry DAS in Hard Disk Drive (HDD) 2016 Xentry DAS in Solid State Drive (SSD)
Speed HDD has higher latency, longer read/write times, and supports fewer IOPs (input output operations per second) compared to SSD. SSD has lower latency, faster read/writes, and supports more IOPs (input output operations per second) compared to HDD.
Heat, Electricity, Noise Hard disk drives use more electricity to rotate the platters, generating heat and noise. Since no such rotation is needed in solid state drives, they use less power and do not generate heat or noise.
Defragmentation The performance of HDD drives worsens due to fragmentation; therefore, they need to be periodically defragmented. SSD drive performance is not impacted by fragmentation. So defragmentation is not necessary.
Components HDD contains moving parts – a motor-driven spindle that holds one or more flat circular disks (called platters) coated with a thin layer of magnetic material. Read-and-write heads are positioned on top of the disks; all this is encased in a metal cas SSD has no moving parts; it is essentially a memory chip. It is interconnected, integrated circuits (ICs) with an interface connector. There are three basic components – controller, cache and capacitor.
Weight HDDs are heavier than SSD drives. SSD drives are lighter than HDD drives because they do not have the rotating disks, spindle and motor.
Dealing with vibration The moving parts of HDDs make them susceptible to crashes and damage due to vibration. SSD drives can withstand vibration up to 2000Hz, which is much more than HDD.


Then, Xentry SSD vs. Xentry HDD (Dell D630)

Engineers at obd365 test the two types of SDConnect C4 software on Dell D630 laptop. And here, data talks.

            SSD VS Common HDD in terms of running speed
(we test it on our DELL D630 PC)
boot time about 1min 30 Secs about 4 min about 3 Min 15 Secs about 5 Min
shutdown time about 20 Secs about 50 Secs about 22 Secs about 2 min
time to use Xentry test
one vehicle module
about 2 min 25 Secs about 3Min 27 Secs about 4 Min 28 Secs about 5 min 7 Secs


Our engineer has tested the 2016.3 SD connect c4 SSD on Dell D630 laptop,running fast.

Model: B245

Kess V2 master clone “Security code not ready” solution

Classé dans : ECU chip tuning tool — carsets @ 3 h 24 min

I have had V2.13 kess v2 ecu tuning kit master clone built with firmware V4.036 for about 4 months and read & write to about 8 cars. And last week, I went to send a VW Caddy EDC16. This read fine with no error’s at all.. Got the file mapped..


But today, error message “security code not ready” always came with ksuite.

read a MK5 Gold TDI EDC16—> got this error “security code not ready”

went to ID the Caddy and got the map—> got the same error “security code not ready”

tried to read it—> still the same error

changed the Speed min—> still the same error

waited 40 min in the car with the key on switch 2—> still did the same error

 kess-v2-security-code (1)kess-v2-security-code (2)

Optional solutions by other users with the same error – security code not ready

— solution 1

I had this problem once after writing with empty battery.
kess v2 4.036 master says all ok, but after this, the car crank but not start.
cooling ventilator works.

Helps to write the ecu in BDM mode. But first you need full BDM for it.
my tuner have prepaired file fo me to write it. After writing, I can read out it an make DPF off.


— solution 2

very easy!

Just change read speed to slow

But, if this does not work, leave ignition on position two for 30-40mins

Then try to read ECU without turning ignition off when KESS V2 ksuite software ask.


— solution 3

connect and correctly choose driver

Choose setup, in options IDENTIFY, READ, WRITE, RECOVER, SPECIAL and SETUP

Choose SPEED, in 2 options PULL UP and SPEED

Select MINIMUM, in 2 options MINIMUM and MAXIMUM.

Note these options do not appear to be sticky so you must do this for each attempt.

It is also important to have around 14.5 volts present, best achieved with a stabilised power supply suitable for programming support, but I have had success with a heavy duty jump starter/charger connected. It might be worth mentioning that trying this with the headlamps or side lamps on in an attempt to smooth things out results in read failure every time, as does a voltage of 13 volts.


Here, i used Solution 2, only made the read speed slower. And all backed to work normally. i have used this Kess v2 ecu programmer to read a MK5 Gold TDI successfully this morning.
