Re: Same firmware for NXT-G and NXC.

Well, well, well. I thought I was joining a scientific group so that I could learn more about using the NXT. Instead I find it is a semi religious cult where the merest mention that you had a problem (which you solved quite quickly) calls down the wrath of the community against you! Wishing you all ...

Re: Same firmware for NXT-G and NXC.

Lets just get this into perspective. I did NOT panic from clicking brick syndrome. I got an error message saying that the download had failed. I tried again. And again. And again.

Re: Same firmware for NXT-G and NXC.

If you search Google you will find it has been a very big problem for many people for a long time! Some even had to return their bricks to Lego to get them sorted. I tried both the NXT-G and Brick Center several times but neither could connect to the brick. Tried restarting the computer, resetting t...

Re: Same firmware for NXT-G and NXC.

Yes, but follow the instructions carefully!

I just tried to use the Brick center NXT firmware (downloading through the Center) and now have a 'clicking brick'!

Re: Blue Tooth

I bought a cheap Bluetooth unit through ebay and it worked first time.

I have read recommendations that the native Windows drivers be used rather than whatever came with the device. I used both without problems.
