Hi, recently my robot and computer have been having issues with connecting. I’ve done wireless and wired downloading, but tonight while testing autonomous the robot lost the ability to connect. I tried downloading firmware, but on my Surface Pro (the first one), running windows 8.1, it doesn’t recognize that the robot is connected to the computer. I downloaded all the drivers I needed when I first got RobotC (around the beginning of September), and I haven’t gotten any new drivers since. Is there any solution to this?
The specifics of the problem are a little fuzzy, but what I remember is this:
*]The batter (and extender battery) would die really fast, like ~10 minutes.
*]The lights would give “false positives” i.e. we would have green lights on the controller, but the robot light was red.
*]It worked on another kid’s laptop running windows 7 on bootcamp
*]I’m running windows 8.1, on the original surface pro 128 gigs
*]It works sometimes, then it decides to stop.
*]It may or may not have something to do with the cortex (we’re looking into getting a new one, but with a competition tomorrow there’s no time tonight)
Any possible solutions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
