Registering Used Transponder

Hey all. I just got myself a used transponder, and I'm running into a problem when trying to register it online. When I log into my MYLAPS account and try to search up my transponder I keep getting the message that says: The transponder such and such is already registered to another account. It cannot be registered to this account.
Is there any way to get around that since the previous transponder owner does not know his account information? How would I go about trying to register this transponder under my own account?

Anyone have any experience or insight on registering a transponder they bought used would be great help.

I'd just try getting a hold of MyLaps. I take it it's a newer one that you need to register with them in order for it to work?

MyLaps used to charge a $40 transfer fee to switch accounts on the non-subscription transponders.

the only thing u are missing by not registering a non-sub transponder is the "My Results" page on speedhive.mylaps.com that shows all the races u participated in. its an ez way to find past results, but thats about it. u can still find all your results manually since the race org will have put your name on them.

to clarify, if I purchase one of these newer subscription transponders, will it work with AFM timing even if I don't have a subscription?

I asked the AFM folks and they said you just have to give them the transponder ID, but I'm not sure if that's true for the newer ones too.

from my understanding the subscription has to be current for the transponder to be able to push out a signal, which is synced using the usb charging dongle and the mylaps x connect program
