    Vyper download failure

    Could you provide details on the Vyper? When purchased, wrist or gauge, how many dives on it, any servicing or issues with it, and of course, what you want for it. Essentially, how hard has it been used, and for what period of time?

    Vyper download failure

    Unfortunately, it's moot now. On my June Grand Cayman trip, the Vyper failed completely, just before a dive. While sitting on the boat, all geared up, the computer thought I was at 15 feet. Later, I even went to the trouble of pulling the battery to restart. No joy. So, any...

    Recommendations on new travel BCD

    It looks cool, but it's kinda pricey. Any thoughts on the Cressi Travelight? It's half the price.

    I know. I prefer the vest style. It's what you're used to, I suppose.

    Vyper download failure

    Actually, I am using DM 3.1 on purpose, because I don't trust 4 or 5. Interestingly, After I posted this thread, I tried once again and the laptop read the dives and I have been able to download them! Don't ask me what happened, but it worked. First time since last summer, when I last tried...

    Recommendations on new travel BCD

    I have been using a Seaquest passport BCD since about 2005. It's getting a bit long in the tooth, and I have had some issues with unintended inflation of the BCD in the recent past. I would be interested in knowing everybody's suggestions on a solid a replacement BCD for travel, vest Style.

    Vyper download failure

    I have a 2005 Vyper which has worked fine until the last couple of years. On my most recent dive trip, last June of 2018, the computer worked fine in the water. However, when I have tried to download the Suunto dive manager, the software on my laptop computer reads the dive computer but finds no...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    Here's an interesting development. My Dives last year were from June 19th through June 24th 2017. I was able to get the computer to read certain Dives. They showed up in the files to transfer as June 19th through June 24th 2006. Looking at the times of the Dives, it appears that the Dives were...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    Just an update here: I tried downloading dives onto a different computer, in this case my home laptop. Once I get the wonky cable to seat properly, it will read up to dive 17 and then crap out. It then shows NO divelog data on the "Select Divel ogs you want to transfer to SDM" window. This is...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    Man, I'm afraid that last paragraph tells the tale. I mean, I've had this dive computer since so far 2005, so I cannot exactly say that I haven't gotten good use out of it. But, boy, do I hate the concept of shelling out potentially $600 for a replacement Vyper. By the way, what do you think of...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    Thanks for the reply. I did try those other apps back last summer when I first detected the problem. It made no difference, and arguably gave worse results then using Suunto Divemanager. As I said back then, I was not able to pick up any of my most recent Dives. The most recent by date were in...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    Well, I know that this is an old thread, but for any who pick this up, I'm preparing for a dive trip in June and I need to determine whether my dive computer is still usable. To summarize, my 2005 Suunto Vyper worked fine on my last dive trip in June 2017. When I tried to download the dive...

    My reply to Suunto. This interface would not allow me to upload the dump.dat file. I am attaching the screen shot showing the error: I complied with your instructions below. However, the only application file was dumpm.exe, which I used. I got an error: "Loading event logs...Failed...

    Suunto emails to me: Our apology for the delayed response and for the inconvenience this has caused you. We would like to inform you that it is recommended to use DM5 for data transfer as the older dive managers are no longer supported. From your message, we understood that new dives are not...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    I have attempted multiple downloads. Always the same result, in terms of what dives to download appear. See .jpeg file in original post. Based on that criterion, then, the cable probably is not bad. Interestingly, I got a reply from Suunto support, who want me to do a data dump and send to...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    Intriguing notion that the cable may be the problem. As you can see from the jpeg file attached to the original post, the cable did read certain Dives and list them as available for download. It is not, however, making the most recent Dives available. Of course, it is those most recent Dives...

    Suunto Vyper Not Downloading Recent Dives

    First of all, my computer only shows 240 Dives, which is probably accurate as to the number of Dives I have done with this computer. So I do not think that it is a problem with the memory being used up. Further, when I look at the log book feature, I can see the most recent Dives on the...
