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
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.
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:
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.
