comment Using motors to ring a bell?
I'm guessing this is not a Mindstorms question. If it were, I'd suggest the original RCX motor, a loop of string around two pulleys, making the on/off button a touch sensor.

comment Is there a fix for an NXT reporting “File error!” when running an EV3 program?
Actually, the NXT does accept programs written in EV3-G. It did require a firmware upgrade.

EV3 software on my laptop. NXT hardware (brick). The only way to use the NXT Light sensor is with a Raw Sensor block.

I only have an NXT brick. The question concerned using EV3 software to create a program and download the program to an NXT brick. The NXT needed newer firmware.
