MB SD Connect C4 computerlaptop issue (solved)

We have customer confuse about the MB Star C4 laptop issue. What laptop should i use and why Dell D630 laptop is most used? Can i use other laptops with SD Connect C4?

Solution from obd2tool
It depends on which format HDD you choose to buy
1.
If you buy Dell D630 internal hard drive/solid drive (we only have D630 format internal HDD currently), you should install internal HDD on Dell D630 laptop ONLY.

2.
If you buy external HDD, there is no laptop limitation. But make sure your laptop meets the requirement.
Star diagnostic External HDD/SSD laptop requirements:
CPU 2.0
RAM 2GB

better with COM port, if it does not have COM port, you can buy Z-TEK USB1.1 to RS232 Convert Connector (if use MB Star C3) to transfer.
If you use laptop lower CPU2.0 with external HDD, the HDD works but runs rather slow. BTW,external HDD does not support WiFi wireless connection.

Both our customer and engineer tested and verified Dell D630 laptop is the most safe option.

Our Dell D630 configuration:
Brand: Dell
Type: Laptop/Notebook
Screen Size: 14.0
Memory (RAM): 2000 Processor Type: Intel Core 2 Duo
Primary Drive: DVD+/-RW Processor Speed: 1.80 GHz
Processor Configuration: Dual Core
Memory: 4GB

Benz eCOM DoIP vs. MB SD Connect C4 Diagnostic Scanner

Look here: What’s the difference between Benz eCOM DoIP diagnostic tool and MB Star diagnostic SD connect c4 multiplexer?

Benz-eCOM-DoIP-vs-MB-SD-Connect-C4-Diagnostic-Scanner

In summary,

New car: eCom DoIP
eCom – laboratory\development tool. Most cheap and light. Can’t be used with DAS\HHT vehicles. Need luck with kline communication. Need to be specially setup on any diag sw installation.

Normal: Clone MB SD Connect C4
SDConnect – workshop\robust tool. Most universal in use. The only limitation is kline communication in Vediamo from ver5* Easy to setup. In most cases work as is.

Good to know:

Actia eCOM DoIP Box Multiplexer Kit supports DoIP for the latest E and S series, and it’s perfect for Mercedes COMAND NTG5, NTG5s1, NTG5s2, NTG5.5

ECOM is the diagnostic and swipe communication interface used by daimler-benz’s production and r&d department. It supports the after sales diagnostic software Xentry, Vediamo, and the Monaco DTS, the exclusive development software, with higher access rights than SDconnect (C4).

ECom supports the CAN/DoIP network, which CAN be used for the diagnosis and brushing of new car audio and video entertainment systems. Vediamo for Mercedes engineers is an engineering software used by Mercedes engineers to develop diagnostic software, that is, Xentry and DAS now in use is developed based on Vediamo and delivered to general after-sales dealers. For this reason, using the Mercedes super engineering version is open to all diagnosis /coding/retrofit/flashing programming features. It is possible to add or reduce SA codes freely without going through VEDOC(the process of the original factory applying for modifying the equipment code), so as to achieve the purpose of modifying the vehicle equipment, such as adding SA500 electric rearview mirror.

Xentry and DAS Developer mode, commonly known as: exploit data engineering version after 2010, has added many restrictions on functions. Therefore, people may encounter that the vehicle version is too new to enter the control unit, or they cannot make any special modifications after entering the control unit. For example, the w204/212 2012 meter may need to be configured in the regional language, or turn on other convenience functions.

The database of diagnosis /coding/retrofit/flashing for the Mercedes engineer version USES the Xentry database, so the Mercedes engineer version is dependent on the Xentry version. As long as the database is new, the Mercedes engineer version can use the V4.00 version on the new model, and compact3 & SDconnect does not support the ODX document. The latest V5.00 supports ODX files with eCom. It is recommended to use eCom with DoIP function, which is faster and more stable.

Mercedes Benz Star C3C4C5 Buying Guide

Mercedes-Benz-Star-C3-C4-C5-Buying-Guide

Mercedes benz star scanner is a very popular auto scanner in the market. However,Many customer are confused to choose when they want to buy one, because there is four version of mb star:Mercedes Benz star c3,benz star c4, Benz Star SD Connect Compact 4 C4 and super MB benz star C5.

So now,i will summarize their similarity and difference,hope it will helpful for customers to choose.

Similarity:

1.Benz star C3/C4 and MB star sd connect c4,Super MB Star c5 use same software.

V2019.3 MB SD Connect Compact C4 Software WIN7 500GB HDD DELL D630:

https://www.obd2tool.com/goods-334-MB+SD+Connect+Compact+4+Star+Diagnostic+Tool+With+WiFi.html

V2019.3 256GB SSD Software for MB SD C4/MB SD C5 MB Star DELL D630:

https://www.obd2tool.com/goods-335-MB+SD+Connect+Compact+4+Star+Diagnosis+Tool+Plus+Dell+D630+Laptop.html

2.For the hardware, Benz star C3/C4/C5 is same function in diagnosing.

Difference:

1.For the functions, MB star c3 and c4 are almost the same,C4 can do all the works what C3 does and it is the replacement of Compact C3.
Just benz star c4 size is small and weight is light,much convience and the anti‐interrupting ability is better.
One more thing, as customer feedback, the advantage of c3 is can do trucks best.

2.MB starC3, C4 just can support Mercedes Benz cars manufactured after year 2000. Super MB star c5,Benz SD Connect C4 can support all current and new coming MB vehicles.

3.Benz star c3,c4,SD connect C4 update by Harddisk.That means when customer want to update,they need to send back harddisk to supplier,after finish update,then send back to them again or just buy a new HDD.For the long international distance,it may need about 2 weeks can complete one time update,so it is very trouble and inconvience.

Under this suitation,Super mb benz star c5 is release, it is can update through super mb star official web directly, which will be much convience and time saving.

In addition,Super mb star C5 work with W204, W207, W212, 405, 451, 452 and 454. Besides the software c3 and c4 own,it added three more software: SD Media, Xentry and Smart TAN Code.

SD Media: Video and PDF lessons;
Xentry:New software released by Benz Company after 04/2009 by diagnosis new cars. Xentry software for diagnosing W 204,W207 and W212 which C3 and C4 does not support;
Smart TAN Code: Opened special function in DAS program with Smart cars 405/ 451/452/ 454.Besides, it also opened more special functions, such as engineer mode, remove limitations,etc, which Star C3 and Star C4 do not have.

4.Now we turn to MB star SD connect C4 again.MB Star SD connect C4 not only support KL diagnosis and three lines CAN BUS diagnosis, but also support UDS diagnose protocol, Because it have UDS chips. Star C3,C4,c5 don’t have this chip, so they can not support UDS.

The most advantage of SD connect c4 is: It can connect to PC by wireless or Lan cable.So it will be much more convience than Benz star C3/C4/c5.

Besides, Professional Diagnostic Tools mercedes star diagnostic SD connect C4 interface components used the military quickly inserted techniques that can support one million times plug, more stably;And all of the its core components adopt new original packaged chip, plus 24 hours fatigue test, to ensure its stable release.

So in all,each version have its advantage,just see which one is most suitable and interested you.
