Hey All,

I'm attempting to download BrickOS to my computer
which is running windows XP.

I'm trying to download the brickOS.srec onto the RCX
controller. Now I know I have tp specify that I'm using
a USB COnnection so I type in:

export RCXTTY=USB

and then I try to download the brickOS.srec onto my
controller and I'm told that it cannot make a connection
with the USB Port.

When I try this and attempt to make my connection with
the following command line

./firmdl3 --tty=usb ../boot/brickOS.srec

I recieve the following error:

Error 2: Opening \\.\legotower1

Does anybody know what this means and how I can fix
this so I can use BrickOS?

Thanks,
Ben

Smile :)

    Did you install the drivers for the USB tower. The drivers
    are supplied with the Windows version of the Lego software.
