So I've been trying to copy files to my TI-84 +SE Graphing calculator, and update its firmware. The one thing I've learned over the past two days is that Texas Instruments sucks at writing software. I took the standard, "oh, typical company still living in the 90's that is too lazy to learn how to write decent software for the Mac" approach. I was proven wrong. I tried to run the same program on a separate Windows XP machine. It sucks even worse. So here's the problem I'm having. I can launch the programs fine, it detects my calculator fine, and I can read everything on the calculator fine. When I go to "send file to device", it comes up with an error every time about the incorrect file type. I read the TI documentation, and it says you can definitely copy a BMP image to it. I've tried other file types, none of them will work. Then I tried to update the firmware on it. Apparently there are some new features they've added since this model came out 7 years ago. I can download the update files, but then halfway through, the TI Connect application just crashes. I've been looking online, and this is an extremely common issue. They say it has something to do with Snow Leopard and the 64 bit architecture. I tried to run this TI Connect program on an old XP machine, and it won't even recognize that my calculator is plugged in, and insists that it will be connected via "COM3", and not USB. This, too, is an extremely common issue. So TI sucks. They aren't going to fix their software apparently. (C'mon, 10.6 has been out for 2 years. TI has a complete monopoly on all high school students in America. They can't hire a guy to fix these bugs?) My question is, does anyone know of a way to run Snow Leopard in 32 bit mode, OR, is there a way that I can just view the calculator as an attached drive? Thanks.
