A few days ago, a friend offered me one set 9750 LEGO Technic Interface A with the Interface Card and Cable (IBM compatible) but without software.

Can someone share the installation software (LEGO Lines, LEGO TC Logo or Logowriter Robotics) or where can I download the original software for IBM PC-DOS??

    The person behind this link says they have software and cables to interface with this device: lgauge.com – user3971 May 1 '15 at 20:29

    I had already found the site mentioned by jvd. It contains lots of useful information about the Interface A. What I wanted was to find the original software, especially the LEGO TC Logo for IBM (MS-DOS). – Alberto Santos May 19 '15 at 11:31

    If you goal is only to be able to use it, it seems faster to hack it using an Arduino and than control it through USB. – pcantin Jul 23 '15 at 1:38

This link to a google drive ZIP file seems to be the ISA card installation documentation and PC-DOS application you are looking for.

More information on using the LEGO Technic Interface A with an Apple II or Commodore 64 can be found here.

  • There was at one point also an interface for the ZX Spectrum too although I realise this is not too relevant to the original question however mentioning it as other 8 bit systems were also noted. – AndyF Jan 9 at 0:19

    There was an interface for the Sinclair ZX it just wasn't made by the Lego Group. It was made by Datel Electronics Ltd (UK) in 1984 called the Datel Robotek. A companion book "Make And Program Your Own Robots" by William Clark, Lionel Bender was also published. – Dan1138 Jan 9 at 1:48
  • Thank you for the correction. I see you are completely correct now. – AndyF Jan 9 at 7:36

The software for Technic Interface A is said to be the same for the lego DACTA interface (aka 'interface B').

Try this download link for lego DACTA control Lab
