Star Diagnostic SD Connect 4 WIFI works with D630 only?

Mercedes-Benz MB SD Connect C4 is the only Star diagnostic system that is featured WIFI wireless connection via LAN cable. It is true that the WIFI only works with a D630 HDD & laptop?


Questions before entering:

I need help and have a question. Is it true that the WIFI only works with a D630? Because I use Xentry via VMWare and I search a solution to use SD Connect via WIFI. 


I have 2 Laptops. The one is a XPS M1710 and Xentry is installed internal HDD. The other Laptop is a Dell Studio and Xentry is installed via VMware external HDD. Can I use one of both methods the Wifi Connection?



Regular Star diagnostic DAS/XENTRY has two formats Dell D630 HDD and external HDD. (IBMT30 is quite old software for Star C3 and it is now out of production.) Usually the Dell D630 HDD is installed on Dell laptop while external HDD is installed on VMware. 


External HDD on VMware cannot enable SD Connect WIFI wireless connection. 


Star diagnostic Platinum Edition HDD has 4 formats: Dell D630/ThinkPad X61T/Panasonic CF30/External Format. 


ThinkPad and Panasonic CF30 laptop has built-in WIFI feature. If you using ThinkPad X61T/Panasonic CF30 format internal HDD on corresponding laptop, you can use SD C4 WIFI feature as well. 



SDConnect 4 WIFI connection can only be enabled when an internal HDD is well loaded on corresponding laptop (Dell HDD on Dell D630 laptop, X61T format HDD on ThinkPad X61T laptop and CF30 HDD on Panasonic CF30 laptop). WIFI Connection CANNOT be used under VMware condition. 


And majority SDS owner are rather to get the bundle package: SD Connect + Dell D630 laptop + Dell HDD


If you find any instruction to use SD Connect via WIFI but you do not have internal HDD, all at your own risk.
