My cousin have almost the same symptom in that his car will crank but  
not start.  When connected to the VAGCOM emulator (trying to connect  
to the engine module)  got message "unable to connect".  It was  
diagnosed later on as problem on the socket to the chip (aftermarket  
chip ) according to the ECU modifier/supplier.  On his car, when he  
put in his stock ECU the car start fine.
