Re: Unable to connect calculator to computer.

I have a HP48G. I connect thru HyperTerm. I bought the SIO cable for the Caclulator, and you have to set the I/O on the calculator. For files transfer I use Kermit. Still using HyperTerm on the Computer.

Works for me.

You have a HP49G, I don't know if it is SIO or USB, I don't see USB support on HyperTerm.

Good Luck

How's the programming going on that? I call it Object Programming.

Re: Unable to connect calculator to computer.

Try opening the software on your PC. Set the connection to USB and connect your calc. On the calc press the right shift key followed by the right arrow should now recognize the calc.

I'm unable to send to, or receive from, my PC files.

Kermit is a protocol designed to allow two computers to communicate with each other.

The HP 50g is not compatible with Microsoft Word. You can write programs on the 50g, transfer them to the computer, and transfer them back, but you cannot edit them in Word.

There are other PC program that will let you write and edit 50g programs. There are also many communication programs. Take a look here.

You may want to consider getting an SD card (and if necessary, a card reader for your computer). It's a lot easier and faster to transfer data and programs using the SD card than the wired connection.

Here is what the TI Knowledge Base has to say about resolving the problem you have.Hope it helps.

How do I resolve the error "Access Denied" when transferring an App or OS using the TI Connect software?

The error "Access Denied" indicates that the TI-Connect software could not complete the current transfer due to an unforeseen error. Please try the following troubleshooting steps if the error persists.

NOTE: A manual "Garbage Collect" can take up to 5 minutes to complete.

Uninstall and reinstall the TI-Connect software:

• Locate the TI-Connect software in the list and then choose "Remove".
• Once the software uninstall process has completed, please shut down and power off the computer.

Failure to connect to the computer

You might have to help the TIconnect software to find your calculator.
I am inserting 2 screen captures to helps you do that.
If TI connect cannot find the device it displays a pop window as represented on first screen.

Click the Configuration Settings button to fine tune the identification.
Enter the right type of cable, and the right port. Hope it helps.

Cannot connect ti 89 to computer. I have installed the correct software from the ti 89 website for my computer and my calculator when I satart ti 89 connect it tells me there is an error.

Check to make sure TI-Connect is looking on the right port, whether USB or serial. If you have a serial cable, you might consider using Ti's Graph-Link software to connect. I have had trouble getting it to work right with TI-Connect. You can find Graph-Link on TI's Education site under Downloads > Connectivity Software. I personally prefer the free program TiLP, which runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and supports whatever cable you want. Hope this helps!

It says that i have to download new software, but dnt know how.

Use the following link to go to
to download specific software for the TI83PLUS (Operating system , Apps or others.)
Use this second link to download the TIConnect software for Windows (if you use Windows). You may already have the latest version on the CD that was with the calculator.

Install the TIconnect software on you computer. Execute TIconnect. Then connect you calculator to the computer with the TISilverLink Cable. Turn calculator on.
Verify that connection is established by clicking the TI Device Explorer icon in the TI connect main window. If it is established, you can Cilck the Update button at the top of the TIconnect Main window. It will update The OS, and the applications that are installed on you calculator.

Later if you go to and find other applications you would like on your calculator, download them on your computer. If you run TIConnect software you will be able to drag an application and drop it on the TIConnect main window and it will be installed on your calculator.

Hope it helps.

My Casio FX-9860II calculator won't connect to the computer!

Whether you are using the FA-124 USB software or the FX-interface, you must first click the OK button (on Computer) on the window that pops up when you instruct the software to receive from the calculator. After clicking the OK button you press the transmit menu or the F-D key for a hard-copy (screen capture).
If that works, transmission is OK. and you should read the software manual to figure out how to send to the calculator.

Usually you need the add-in installer, which you can download from the casio Web site.

My calculator does not connect

I hope your using the silver link cable between your calculator and computer. My computers seems to only work with the black serial link and ti connect. I found a few computers actually download and work with the ti89 or ti 84 graphic link software. Ti Connect Device Explorer works for me but, the graphic link software may work for others.
