Did you try to go into progman and just let him update everything?

Are you sure cable you are working with is OK ? I would :

- check cable
- be sure battery is full, connect charger all the time
- check version you want to upload with version you have (DDE), post here, maybe someone has same problem

Also, if you have CoApi error maybe your application is outdated for your car. You should find latest files to update ediabas, files from 2011 are like 11 GB for all car, 450 MB E83 only.

if software is not updated you are probably on old version but something else went wrong, use INPA or DIS to find exact error and post here.

Also : may be scary at this moment but don't worry, nothing is broken, you just need to find what is wrong and to do correct update.

Finally : IF your SSS is outdated I don't know how this can be updated, but winkfp can be updated using SSS files, just more things need to be do manually and be aware that this is using 32 bit ediabas which won't work with ncsexpert, install that to separeted folder (e.g. change folder to ediabas32)

I had the same issue while updating my ECU...
The error in Progman was:
Operations : Diagnostic trouble 2000 CoApi - EDIABAS or ECU descroption file error
Diagnostic trouble 2020(Coapi) - Control unit does not respond
The battery voltage was about ~12.5 without external charger. The cable is a KKL cable used for vagcom too, with FTDI chip reprogrammed. With this cable i succesfully programmed other parts : cluters, lights..with progman too in CAR section when when it comes about ecu update..i got the errors above.
After that I tried with WINFKP..i set it up correctly..with the correct data files..but the same issue Error 606: Diagnosis: Error reading ECU programming INPA i got now ecu rejected..
What do you think that could be? The KKL cable is not good ?

I have a 2001 x4 4.4, I'm planing to update the modules, but what do you recommend for chargers?, would the Ctek 4.3 give enough power to keep the car on while updating?
