The log shows that the data was transferred.

If after you restart the controller, it is found by Roborun, then the firmware updated ok and you can disregard the error message.

No luck.

I power down the controller, back on and the status light is flashing rapidly.

I have tried the Update on 2 different computers using 2 different USB drivers.

RoboRun doesn't recognize it.

It worked previous to this.

Thx,

Blake

Do you remember what the previous firmware date that was on the controller?

Update via comport. Make sure to set the port to manual and not automatic. Make sure to select the correct comport. If message says waiting for controller to restart and sits there, simply power cycle the controller.

I've attached an older firmware from this year.

The firmwares used across the LDC are the same regardless of what voltage controller. A different chip is referenced when determining whether it is a 50V or a 60V; in your case the LDC2250 or an LDC2260.

With that in mind, it may take a bit of time to find the right firmware for this controller as it is not a controller we sell anymore and haven't sold in a long time.

This is part of a Halloween costume, so there is a rush.

I've made a tank for my shipmates toddler daughter, she is going to be "tank Girl " for Halloween.

Since this controller is discontinued, why was there a firmware update? Wasn't it tested to make sure it was stable?

I'm running out of time and don't want to have to buy another controller.

I looked at the last stable release from 3/11/14 and the LDC22xx firmware was not included. So why it was included on this release we'll need to investigate. The previous release to that was the 1/24/14 firmware.
