The gentleman here was able to use a similar model with no issues so I'm wondering if this might be the way to go. You can find the VX2000 models on Amazon. Wink

However, I'll take another look to see if the ones you mentioned are compatible as well.

EDIT: I'm not seeing that much, just threads going back to 2008-2010. The solutions and software given in them probably would no longer apply.

Regards...

You are typing it wrong. The command has a colon in the middle.
