You need to get the OS from another calc (via usb or I/O cable and the "Send OS" command) or pick up the OS from ti's website and install it through the computer software (ticonnect) having the newest OS on your calculator is always a good idea.

I tried to upgrade the OS from 1.07 to 2.09 on my old TI-89 calculator. During the transfer, I got the following error: "Cannot transfer. The connected TI device does not support this data type....


Sometimes you can just carry on as if no error message was seen and the OS downloader will upgrade the calculator anyway. I have had to use the old GraphLink software with the series gray cable to upgrade very old OS's. As a last resort, you may be able to delete the OS system entirely from the calculator (check on the Internet to see how to do that for your specific calculator) and use the TI Connect software with the silver USB cable to add the OS from scratch.

Ti 84 plus can't transfer 8C010000


Transferring data and programs to the calculator requires a lot of energy that almost dead batteries cannot provide. Change batteries and try the transfer again using TI Connect. To transfer from a similar calculator the receiving one must be in RCV (receive mode).

Cant transfer files to ti voyage200


The error message is important. It tells the would-be helper where to start.
Anyways, did you try to check if the file(s) you are trying to transfer have a size smaller than the RAM left?.
Did you make sure that the Computer (TI connect) fully recognizes the calculator?.
I use Windows 7 (64 bits) and TI connect works perfectly.

Can you transfer ti83 os to ti 84?


The TI83Plus has the capability to transfer its OS to another handheld device. It is possible that the TI84Plus hardware will accept it. But why downgrade?. Why not resinstall the OS? The latest version 2.55MP is available on the TI website.
You say emphatically that you tried everything and maybe so, but I will ask you: Have tried to connect the calculator to a computer and explored its content with TI connect. You may retrieve some information about its status.
The TI connect software will allow you to transfer a version of the OS even if the calculator appears to refuse to turn ON (screen contrast problem.) If it cannot it will let you know.

Try again.

Hello,

Reinstalling the OS fot the TI84Plus

How do I correct the Error Waiting...Please Install Calculator SoftwareNow message on my TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family calculator?

If an operating system (OS) update fails or is interrupted, the calculator will be in an inoperable state with the message Waiting...Please install calculator software now.The most common cause of a transfer being interrupted is updating the operating system on a calculator with low batteries. Users will need to use the TI Connectivity cable and the TI Connect to send the operating system to the calculator. Make sure to have the latest version of TI Connect installed on the computer.
In order to install the software please follow these steps:
1. Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the computer and the calculator.
2. Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
3. Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS.
If the message "Error! Press any key to turn unit off. Then turn unit back on." appears on the graphing calculator, quickly, remove one battery from the calculator and reinstall it while the transfer is taking place.

I get a access denied error when i try to transfer programs to my ti 84 plus


Hello,
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.
Perform a manual "Garbage Collect" on the calculator (TI-83 Plus and TI-84 Plus family only):
• Press [2nd] [0] [TAN] [ENTER] [ENTER] [2].
NOTE: A manual "Garbage Collect" can take up to 5 minutes to complete.
• Attempt to transfer data to the calculator.
Uninstall and reinstall the TI-Connect software:
• Go to Start >> Settings >> Control Panel or Start >> Control Panel and select "Add or Remove Programs".
• 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.
• Wait approximately 20-30 seconds and then reboot into Windows.
• Download and install the latest version of the TI Connect software from the TI Connect Software home page.
• Once the TI Connect software install process has completed, restart the computer before using TI-Connect.
• Attempt to transfer data to the calculator.
If the above troubleshooting steps do not work, please contact TI-Cares Technical Support for additional troubleshooting.

OS failed now installation screen stuck


Hello,
I suggest you interrupt the installation with [Esc] or [Diamond][QUIT]. Then download the OS on your computer and drag and drop OS on the open window of TI Connect to transfer it to calculator.
Press the [Diamond][QUIT] several times. If it refuses, all that is left for you to do is remove main batteries and restart the installation as described above.
Hope it helps.

I accidentally resetted my ti-89 titanium


Hello,
Use the TIConnect software to connect the calculator to the computer.Then in the TIconnect main window you can drag and drop the applications you downloaded from education.ti.com. They will be transferred to the calculator.
I cannot understand why you cannot graph normally since the graphing is not an application, it is part of the OS.
While you are connected to the Internet and to the calculator, you may want to reinstall the OS directly from education.ti.com to your calculator
Hope it helps.
