Post NXT not found
Excuse me, but RobotC seems to not be able to recognize my NXT device. What it weird is that Windows 8 has no problemo finding it. Not only that, but it was working fine beforehand. Thanks.

How are you connecting your robot? If it's by bluetooth, then try connecting the robot via a USB cable. If it's a cable, then check if other USB devices work in that port. Also try connecting the NXT through a different port (if you have multiple ports).

just as another thing, is seems that RobotC does not recognize any NXT device period right now. I hope this helps narrow down what has happened.

It sounds like your NXT may be in firmware loading (aka SAMBA) mode. If this is indeed the problem, re-downloading the firmware to it should fix the problem.

To download firmware, you don't connect to the NXT in the normal sense. You go to Robot->Download Firmware->Standard File. It will give you a list of NXT bricks in firmware download mode. You select your NXT from the list and click the F/W download button.

All it said was no NXT connected via USB so robot C doesn't even know of its existence. My computer, however does.
