3. Get ready to transfer readings
Connect the OneTouch® Interface Cable to the COM or USB port on your computer. Make sure the meter is turned off. If you insert the cable while the meter is already on, the meter will not respond to computer commands. Then connect the other end of the OneTouch® Interface Cable to the meter data port.

Follow the instructions provided with OneTouch® DMS to download the results from the meter. Once the command to start the download is sent from the computer to the meter, the meter display will show “PC“ indicating that the meter is in communication mode. You will not be able to perform a test when the meter is in communication mode.p>
