Update!
My problem , not the Flashpaq. Took it to a friends house with a high end "Alienware PC'" with .0 USB, and worked like a champ, their tech info does say to use a desktop if at all possible. Guess it was my old laptop only has USB 1.5 outlets or a problem on the laptop itself. Sure wish the iPad would work for it.

My first instinct was to blame the computer when I read the OP. Glad you figured it out! I ordered one yesterday and I will be updating next week.

So far mine is a glorified "tire size changer" for $300...

Updated mine last night. The update went fine, but after it was done, their "app store" was terribly programmed on the desktop software. It was off-center so much that I couldn't click, "accept" to download anything. That being said, I was able to hit tab enough to find the ok button blindly and download the TPMS software. Couldn't do anything else though. I will probably wait to plug it into my OBD port until I get the lift and tires on it this weekend.

Plugged it in after I got done with the lift, and it downloaded my stock file then said there were no settings, that I needed an update.
Plugged it into the computer and it uploaded my stock file and told me they have no support for my vehicle, and that I had to wait two weeks for them to update for me...
Pretty upset that I was told they have support but actually don't...
