Colinwill78,

I had the same problem. Basically the SKY705 unit was unrealiable when connected to a PC. What I eventually noticed was that the USB cable that came with the SKY705 unit started getting hot. I then started to suspect that the wires inside the cable had shorted between each other causing the issue/hot cable.

Anyway I ended up making a new cable and things seem to work OK now. But I do find that I need to start the computer without the SKY705 plugged in, open the SKY705 utility, plug in the SKY705, wait for it to link and then press "open G". Following this process with the new home made cable has made my unit work OK.

Regards,
Mark
