    Does the low battery sign on the manta affect the connectivity?

    I am facing problems to download my dives to the PC.
    The DC is not recognized (no countdown is initiated), handshake fails and time out message is given.

    I have a low battery sign appeared in my last dives almost a month ago, I downloaded the dives back then. Last week I had the DC underwater in a single dive (didn't change the battery yet) and I am not able to download this dive...

    Is there any relation between the DC recognition and its battery status?

    I changed the battery and the DC is back to normal, so as an answer : Yes, the battery condition affects the sensor to sense that the DC is connected to the data cable

    Yep, definitely affects the cable link. I am having the same low battery issues (even with Sony batteries - plan to send for service after dives next week). Just changed the battery and am able to connect again. Tried for 30 minutes previously with no success.
