Make sure the cable is the right kind. just because it fits doesn't mean it will work: a gameboy charger fits in the graph link spot (don't ask how I know this), but it will kill your calculator (or at least batteries, once again, don't ask).

Does the cable you are using have a short in it? I would also check the port on the calc itself.

Connect the calculator to the computer and turn it ON. Open the TI connect software. Locate your file on your computer, do a CTRL C to copy. Drag and drop the file on the Main window of TI connect. If file is compatible with TI 84 Plus, it will be transferred to your calculator. Use the Memory management of the calculator to locate the transferred file in calculator.

Xmit error message


Error in Xmit meaning one of the next options:

• The TI-84 Plus was unable to transmit an item. Check
to see that the cable is firmly connected to both units
and that the receiving unit is in receive mode

• You pressed ON to break during transmission

• You attempted to perform a backup from a TI-82 to a
TI-84 Plus

• You attempted to transfer data (other than L1 through
L6) from a TI-84 Plus to a TI-82

• You attempted to transfer L1 through L6 from a TI-84
Plus to a TI-82 without using 5:Lists to TI-82 on the
LINK SEND menu

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.

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.

Even if you cannot connect it to the computer you can still transfer applications from a working calculator.

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.

Urgenttttt --- when i used notefolio on my computer to transfer notes to my calculator TI-89... i could not find transferred notes on my calculator!! where can find it?? or do i have to download...


You need to install notefolio to your TI-89.

You can download the program from:
http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/productDetail/us_notefolio_89.html

After you download the program file, you can use TI-Connect to transfer the program file to your calculator (after you connect the calculator to the computer with the USB cable). To transfer the files, simply drag and drop the program file onto the TI-Connect icon on your computer.

To learn more about the Notefolio app, here is the guidebook:

TI-89 i am very frustrated... i used graph link to transfer notes to my calcaultor but it said send failed. why? its really urgent i need notes to be transferred to my calculator. thanks!


Hi,
My first answer is obvious: you can type them in the Editor.
Why did the transfer fail?
  1. File type incompatible with the OS.
  2. Not enough memory left to hold the file.
  3. Transmission error due weak batteries.
  4. Transmission error because the graph link end of the cable that goes into the IO port of the calculator is not fully inserted.
  5. Baud rate of your computer Serial port may be too high. Set it at 9600 bauds or less.
These are all the reasons I can think of. You may try to upadte the TI Connectivity software to the latest 1.6 version, if is not already 1.6

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Whenever i try to link my calculator with other ones it always says error in xmit. no matter what i do


Hello,
Read the following answer from the TI Knowledge Base.
Hope it helps.

How can I troubleshoot an Error in Xmit error message when transferring data between two graphing calculators?

The Error in Xmit error message is returned when a connection cannot be established between two calculators when attempting to transfer data. There are several factors that can contribute to this error message.
• The calculators being connected are not compatible for data transfer.
• The data cable is not firmly connected to both units.
• The receiving calculator is not in receive mode.
• The I/O port on one of the graphing calculators is damaged.
The procedure for connecting two graphing calculators is as follows:

• Connect the data cable to the I/O port of each unit. The cable will fit tightly in the I/O port and snap into place. If silver from the cable is visible, the cable is not properly connected.
• Access the Link menu on each unit
• Place the receiving graphing calculator on "Receive"
• Place the sending unit on "Transmit" or "Send" from the Link menu.

Once the data has been selected, the transfer will commence accordingly.

The data transfer protocols for graphing calculator is as follows:

• TI-73 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-73, TI-82, TI-83, and TI-83 Plus.
• TI-82 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-82.
• TI-83 - Link allows data sharing with the TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-85 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-85(To a TI-86. Not From a TI-86).
• TI-86 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-86 and from a TI-85 to a TI-86.
• TI-89 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-89 family calculator and from a TI-92 family calculator.
• TI-92 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-92 family calculator and from a TI-89 family calculator.
• Voyage™ 200 - Link allows data sharing with another Voyage 200 and TI-92 family calculator.



If the cable does not fit properly into the I/O port, or if the I/O port appears to be damaged (broken or separated plastic, obstruction inside the port), call 1-800-TI-CARES (1-800-842-2737) M-TH 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM FRI 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM Central Standard Time to speak to a representative or sending an email to ti-cares@ti.com.

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 key.....software should now recognize the calc.
