Communication problem with flowcode robots

Postby kris Werbrouck » Mon Feb 25, 2013 8:39 pm

Hello,

I have 13 old formula flowcode robots, 5 new robots en 10 EB006 boards
I used flowocde 3 for 5 years and have no problem
I have now new computers and old computers with flowcodeV3 and V5.
With the new computers I have a great problem with de flowcode robots (old and new) I have no problem with the EB006 boards.
I connect the robots to the computers and have normally no problem, the two leds on the robot blinks alternately.
When a reset the robot to send a new program to the robot, the two leds blinks sometimes together an I must restart the computer.

Hello,

If you hold down the reset button on the formula flowcode for a couple of seconds before releasing then it should solve the issue. Basically the USB needs time to eject the old device before allowing a new device to enumerate.
