What does the cable look like? I have a USB to RS232 cable that I can use with the program. Is the cable a straight through or does it have to have data pins 3 & 4 reversed? I cannot restore V5 Plus using this method. Any additional information is welcome. My unit will not reboot after doing factory reset!!!

I ended up getting a null modem adapter for the cable and that seemed to do the trick. Otherwise it is a standard rs-232 straight through cable.
