Default Are VW and Volvo cables the same?

I bought the Vida/Dice cable and software for the Volvo. Could I use the same cable for the VW and just buy the VCDS software to put on my computer? Sorry if this sounds not so smart but I have a very limited understanding of this stuff.

After reading another thread the answer is no so please ignore this.
