Solved! CGDI Prog MB Load File Failed Error

Here’s the final solution to CGDI MB key programmer error: “Load File Failed, error code: 27E1” (shown picture below)
cgdi-mb-load-file-failed
Possible reasons that cause the error:
1).  Device fell on the ground and damaged
2).  Take apart the CGDI main unit manually
CGDI Prog MB host is equipped with an encrypted battery. If you disassemble the programmer, the encrypted battery will power off automatically.  BenzMonster software refuses to run properly.
What is more, the battery cannot be purchased separately nor installed by yourself.
The ONLY solution is to send CGDI back to repair.
Note:
Always read CGMB label and directions carefully before beginning use.

CGDI MB AC adapter collect Benz old W164 EZS data

Guide: add key to the Mercedes Benz old (A1645450909) EZS W164 when all keys lost using CGDI Prog MB key programmer. With the CGDI MB AC adapter, the data acquisition procedure can be shorten to 9 minutes.

CGDI AC Adapter is necessary to faster calculate key password.
Credit to Mr. Edward Markin.
Step 1:  Calculate password
Connect AC Adapter with CGDI MB
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-3
Read EIS data
Go to Compute Password->Copy Key without Key ->Collect Data-> Platform mode
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-4
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-5
Check old W164 wiring diagram
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-6
Insert the simulation key within 1 minutes.
Turn the quick collect adapter (AC adapter) switch to the platform position. Turn the key
to the ignition switch to ON position.
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-7
If CGDI prompts data acquisition failure.  Try again.
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-8
If still fail to read ezs data, to rotate the simulation key, you need not knock on the EZS
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-9
EZS data collection begins
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-10
Data collection success after 9 minutes
Save data
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-11
Upload the data to calculate password
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-12
Press Query Result
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-13
Calculate password success
Go to EIS function, paste password to Key password area
Read EIS data again
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-14
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-15
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-16
We read the data from the EZS with a password and save.
Step 2: Generate EE
Generate key dumps from the created EZS file
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-17
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-18
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-19
Generate Key File
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-20
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-21
Generate key file success and save it
Step 3:  Write Key
Go to Read/Write Key
Insert key into CGDI MB detection coil
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-22
Read key/chip
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-23
Reset key
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-24
Insert new key into EZS, the erased key does not accept the lock
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-25
Write the key and check its work
Go to Open/Write Key
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-26
Select a key position
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-27
Write key success
cgdi-mb-old-w164-all-key-lost-28
Now the new key works perfectly.
In general, at the moment CGDI MB is the best device for the money!!!

What Tool for FBS4/BGA/NEC/Moto Mercedes key programming?

What is the best FBS4, BGA, NEC, Moto key programming tool? CGDI-MB or  VVDI MB TOOL or Diagspeed or AK500 or NEC PRO57?

Look here! This is for people who are looking for one good key tool to program all new and old keys to Mercedes-Benz.

Mercedes key programmers comparison: CGDI-MB vs VVDI MB vs Diagspeed vs AK500 vs NEC PRO57

Key Type VVDI MB CGDI MB Diagspeed AK500 NEC Pro 57
1997- 2000

705 Moto

YES YES YES YES NO
2001 – 2005

NEC

YES YES YES YES YES
2006 – 2010
NEC
YES YES YES YES YES
2011-

BGA

YES NO YES NO NO
2015 –
FBS4
NO YES NO NO NO

It’s easy to find that,

you’d better to have more than one key tool for Mercedes key programming.

IMPORTANT: CGDI-MB is the only FBS4 key programming tool!

So, you have to use a CGDI MB esp. for FBS4 key (confirmed to read and write FBS4 keys to W205, W218,W166… without any issue) and get another auto key programmer (such as VVDI-MB TOOL and the like)  for BGA keys and the other.

Note that with Xhorse VVDI MB, you should buy VVDI PROG too, because the are some eis and ecu’s that you cant do with MB Tool independently. For example some w210 eis or Sprinter 906. You should have both, VVDI MB Tool and VVDI prog. Or, if you have to buy some tool again, Simon Touch is the best, but its more expensive.

But if you have a CGDI MB, you have a chance to program a new key through OBD. All done with a tool. That’s the reason why people look for it.

YOU HAVE TO KNOW: What is the difference between FBS3 and FBS4:

Late 2015 is FBS4, Early production 2015 is still FBS3.

Not on the outer shell.. maybe the numbers under the battery cover will tell you..

You can also tell by the kind of car…

For sure FBS4… 222, 231, 205, 117, 2012 model year and up 212 and 218, 166 and 190

Note that FBS4 was added to 212 207 etc at mid 2013 (804) not in MY 2012

FBS4 can use blank keys to program to the car with Xentry and an authorized online account.. Not all online accounts have access to program keys..
