203Re: Help! - can not load into FLASH
- May 1, 2007I have followed this thread and tried everything outlined. as soon
as I go into Boot mode the load and run buttons become greyed out.
If I just start up normally (not in boot mode) all buttons are
available - if I then select FLASH and hit Load, the LCD reads LOAD,
but the communication fails and the dialog box reads - Unable to Sync
I can load into RAM just fine. I have had the Demo program in FLash
before and had a Ping tester in Flash, which seems not to be there
I did run the "Clear Config" option that comes up when in boot mode
after setting the baud rate and then realoaded the VM.
The Bot is an Intellibrain 2
Model 02 Rev 01
The rocking between stop/start etc as described in the support email
does not work for me.
