I am trying to upload data from my Freestyle Freedom Lite meter using the Abbott USB data cable to LibreView.

This has worked in the past, but not recently.

I have just reported this to Abbott Support and received the following response.

"
Thank you for contacting Abbott’s UK diabetes care customer service team.

Please be kindly informed that you are using the incorrect website to upload your glucose data from your Freedom Lite Meter.

The platform that is used for the Freedom Lite Meter is called Freestyle Auto-Assist Neo Software. Please find the link below.


Please kindly be advised that Libreview can be used to upload data from the Freestyle Libre 1/2 readers and Freestyle Librelink.

I haven't yet tried the software suggested, but it does say it is for the Neo and requires a yellow data cable.
It also doesn't say that it will allow the import of readings into LibreView.
I also note that the Optium Neo is listed as supported by LibreView.

Thank you if you are still with me.

Is anyone able to upload readings from the Freestyle Freedom Lite using a USB data cable?
If so, what software do you use?
Can you get the data into LibreView, which is the object of the exercise?

Can anyone do this with an Optium Neo?
I am wondering if my meter is now so out of date I need a more modern one.

I understand that the web site is out of date and LibreView no longer supports older devices.

I am expecting a newer meter from Abbott (and hopefully a lead as well) so I will update this thread when this happens.
