Hi There,

I was busy downloading a .mbs file to the MDC2230 Motor controller, when the battery of my laptop died, and the program was midway through the downloading process. Now whenever I connect to USB to the PC and open Roborun+ the USB light is on and the program finds the device but then immediately afterwards says that it has lost the device. Furthermore Roborun+ finds an error and shuts down after several attempts to connect to the controller. I'm therefore not able to gain connection to the controller and possibly reset the firmware or any type of reset.

Is there any way around this? Deadlines coming up and not what I needed at this point.

Many thanks,
Jonathan

It sounds like if you were downloading a .MBS and the controller is set to autorun script while the script is faulty, this will occur. If this is the case, it is always wise never to set controller to set autorun script on controller without first testing and verifying that the script is good.

Try this.

In the scripting tab, type in "terminate" minus the ". As soon as the controller tries to connect, click download to device. You may have to try a few times.

If successful, the script should stop and connection should remain.
