How do I fix Error: TI-89 Detected, but could not get status with the TI-89
using the TI Connect software for Windows?
The Operating System (OS) will need to be updated on the TI-89 in order for the TI Connect™ software to detect the status. Try the following procedure to install the OS from the TI-89 Boot Screen. Make sure TI Connect 1.6 is installed on the PC.
• Connect the TI Connectivity cable to the TI-89 and the computer.
• Do not start the TI Connect software.
• Download the TI-89 v2.09 OS onto the PC's desktop.
**Force TI-89 into "Boot screen" (See instructions below**
• "Press I to install..." ([ALPHA]. [ 9 ]).
• Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader.
• Follow the on-screen directions to install OS version 2.09.
The download should begin.
**Steps for Boot Screen:**
• Take one AAA battery out, press and hold down the Apps key while reinserting the battery to force device into the Boot Code screen.
• "Press I to install..." will appear.
Once the OS has completed installation, the TI Connect™ software will be able to detect the TI-89.

SOURCE: i get a pop-up ballon that says "USB device not recognized"

k.....so i had the same problem but i figured out whats up...

if you find another 89 that is the same model....for example if you have a titanium.....find another titanium....and get a var link cable and plug em in to both calcs......

on the one that is working hit 2nd "-" to open up varlink.

hit F3 to open up "link" and highlight send OS but dont send it yet.

On the calc that isnt working correctly open up varlink (2nd "-") and hit F3 and highlight and click recieve OS.

Then on the calc that is working click send OS.

THis will erase your applications like notefolio and other things but once your calc recieves the OS you can go back to varlink and send all the "flashapp" files.

Just make sure when you use varlink you always click recieve before you send it.....otherwise it will give you an error.

hope this helps

I just upgraded my ti89 and now it will not detect in windows 7


I'm going to take it that your Ti 89 upgrade is a Ti 89 OS update. Check and make sure your Ti 89 OS is up to date with with OS 2.09v. For ti 89 Titanium your OS should be 3.10v. To check the version of your OS from the home screen press, [F1] [A]-About. The OS version should show up at the second line from the top of the "About" window that pops up. If you don't have the updated OS version you should go to the Ti web site and download it. Now let's try getting the computer and calculator connected.

When you have your computer and, Ti 89 calculator connected the calculator should be on and, at the home screen.

Procedure 1.

Go to your Start Menu and search for Device Manager.

Open up Device Manager.
Scroll to the USB controller and click the +. Turn the calculator ON then connect the USB cable to your PC. A new device will appear on the USB controller.
Right-click on the new device and, choose Update Driver Software. The Hardware Update Wizard will appear.
Choose "Browse my computer for driver software".
In the search field type in C:\Program Files\TI Education\Driver Files. Look for the tiehdusb.inf driver file.
Click on Next to finish installing the driver properly
Once the driver is installed click Finish.

Procedure 2.

Now click on the "Ti Connect" software on your desktop. Double-click the Ti Device Explorer located to the left inside the Ti connect window.

oneplusgh_41.jpg

The software should start looking for your calculator. A pop-up should display looking something like what is pictured below. Under device your calculator should display. If your calculator is located the software will highlight on to it. Click, "Select" and another window should pop-up.

oneplusgh_39.jpg

The next pop-up should look something like this. If your Ti 89 is present it will show up next to device and, probably won't say Titanium. Your cable type and port should be listed too.

oneplusgh_40.jpg

If all the information is correct in the window that appears click "OK" and, you should be able to start downloading. You can skip the rest of the procedures. If your Ti 89 still won't connect to the computer goto Procedure 3 unless you have already tried Procedure 3, then goto procedure 4.

Procedure 3.

If the above procedure still does not help then try un-installing and, re-installing the Ti Connect software. After un-installing re-boot your computer. After re-booting your computer you can get the latest copy of Ti Connect software by going to the Texas Instruments web site. You can get to that site instantly by clicking, "Ti Connect software" At this Ti site under "View: Connectivity Software", Click, "the OS link that applies to your computers operating system". Next, click the Download Item, "Ti Connect software for ....OS". Next you can login or, click "continue as guest". I'd would click the "continue as guest". Once you have click, "continue as guest" the Ti Connect software for ....OS will be download to you. Click, "Save" and then a folder will pop up. It is probably a folder that you download too. If so, you may want to change it and, 'Save as" to this folder, "Desktop."

Next right-click the Ti Connect executable on your desktop and select, "Properties." Then click the "Compatibility" tab located at the top of the "Properties" window. Click the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for." and select "Windows XP Service Pack 2" from the drop-down menu. Click "Apply" and choose "OK." Double-click the TI Connect executable and select "Next" to begin the installation. Click "Yes" to OK the installation process to proceed. Then click "Finish" to complete the installation. Next, reboot your computer.

Now go back and try Procedure 1 and 2 again. If you have already tried Procedure 1 and 2 twice, go to Procedure 4.

Procedure 4.

If the above procedures fail then try a different cable and if possible a different computer.
If trying different cables/computers fails, please contact and fill out a Ti Cares Customer Assistance Form. You can get there by clicking this link, " Ti Cares Customer Assistance Form "

Attach a system information file to the email reply you receive from "Ti Cares Customer Assistance Form."

To get the system information file:

Go to Start Menu and search for System Info
Once loaded, click on File and choose Save
Name the file FirstNameLastName.nfo
Please check to make sure that system info file(.nfo) is the selected type of file.
Attach the .nfo file to the email reply

Here is the link to the connectivity software for your calculator. Select the Computer Operating system and download to your computer.

To install the calculator drivers (depending on the cable used) read the following.

Install the drivers first then connect the calculator to the computer with one of the two cables (SilverLink USB, or miniA to standard USB)
The procedure is described in the following, Please read it till the end then try it. If you have any problem, post a comment to this thread.
If you have a USB SilverLink cable, use it to connect the calculator though the I/O (round) port.
If you do not have a USB SilverLink cable, you can use the mini USB to USB Direct cable but you will have to install the correct driver for it.

I do not know what computer operating system you are running and I use Windows XP so I will describe the installation procedure for Window XP SP3.

Install TI connect 1.6 for Windows; if your system is Vista you must install a patch available on the TI website, at the same page where you find TI Connect.

After you install TI Connect, connect your calculator to the computer with the mini USB standard USB Direct cable. Windows will detect the calculator and will try to install the drivers. You will have something that is similar to what is on the three screen captures I am inserting in the post. On the last screen, choose the TI Educational Handheld device and click next.

Run TI Connect to verify that the calculator is recognized. Connect your computer to the Internet and click the Updates Button on the TI Connect tool bar.

Verify that the I/O port (the round one) does not contain any foreign material. Also, for transferring files batteries must be in excellent condition.

Ti connect doesn't find it.


If you use the TI USB Silver Link cable there should not be any problem. In case of problems, download the latest TI connect software and install it anew.
But if you use the mini UsB to Standard USB Direct cable you will have to install manually the correct drivers.

Many Problems with TI-84 Plus SE


I believe that you created your problems. You have TI connect, Use it. If you feel that you have the soul of a hacker then TILP is for you.
If you have a TI USB Silver link or a mini USB to Standard USB Direct cables you need TI Connect 1.6 not GraphLink (for Windows).

YOU MUST uninstall ALL TILP and TILP2 SOFTWARE, then install TI Connect 1.6
In what follows, I am including a copy of an earlier post of mine that may help you install the correct drivers

If you have a USB SilverLink cable, use it to connect the calculator though the I/O (round) port.
If you do not have a USB SilverLink cable, you can use the mini USB to USB Direct cable but you will have to install the correct driver for it.

Cant install any applications


Hello,
Run the TI connect software on you computer. Turn the calculator on and connect it to a USB port on the computer. Before you drag and drop applications on the TI connect software window, Click on one of the icons (TI Device Explorer, TI Device Info, TI Screen Capture). Two new smaller windows pop up, the one on top has the title Select TI device. If in that window it recognizes your Calculator Model, you click on select and OK, and you are ready to communicate with it.

If on the other hand, it fails to find your calculator on any of the 3 or 4 communication ports (COM3, COM4, USB1, etc.) then you click on the communication setting and in the drop down lists
