The same thing happened to me.

It sometimes says that "Connection to the vehicle has been established" but after some time gets the error message. Then i need to unplug the adaptor to even get it detected.

Attached screenshot.

think the issue might be the firmware version of the ELM i think it needs to be 1.5 and not 1.4 but i could be wrong. If in doubt contact forscan directly on here or by email. I am sure they will be able to help you.
