I have a problem with communication between the tower (it's installed and it's working - green light when communicating by IR ) and a RCX 1.0. It's not downloading .lgo file. I've tried with few versions of this file and it's the same.

Now I'm trying on my PC in ROBOTC. Green light is lighting but RCX doesn't respond. I think it is failed. But manually with built in programs it's working

Try to use this (Windows XP x86):

RIS v2.0 software -> http://www.mediafire.com/download/vrg2iajcv4uxkf3

Updated USB Tower drivers -> http://www.philohome.com/sdk25/tower164.zip

Also maybe you have a faulty RCX or IR tower. Try to change the battery of the IR tower.

I recommend the use of the Windows XP x86 (32 bits) for install the RIS v2.0 software. You have to uninstall any QuickTime installed in the PC and install the QuickTime that comes with the RIS v2.0.

  • I've tried with RIS v2.0 - there is a problem with quicktime, I don't know why. Than I.ve tried with ROBOTC for RCX and tower is lighting green when I'm downloading firmware but there is communicate that there is no connection with brick. Maybe I'll try to change battery in tower?? What do you think?? Regards – gregory Jan 22 '15 at 8:47
  • You say it says there's some problem with quicktime? You need to make sure you have a version of quicktime between 4.0 and 6.4 installed, otherwise you'll get this error. – HaydenStudios Jan 22 '15 at 13:42
  • I've installed RIS v2.0 from cd into my other computer (notebook), withouts any problems, than downloaded and instaled drivers for converter rs 232 to usb. Ris 2.0 is working fine but doesn't see my IR tower (serial). I've changed battery for new one and still nothing. – gregory Jan 22 '15 at 14:13
