They are closing our bookstore and had a huge sale. Picked up last calc they had 83+ for $28 . Everything I have read said it is a good calc except for low memory.

I am just tinkering around, nothing more and thinking about getting another with more mem.

What is a better choice, a 84 CE or NSPIRE(which ver?)

NSPIRE is supposed to be the more advanced, but CE is supposed to be more compatible with existing software.
I am leaning towards the CE for that reason but would like feedback.

I have some questions about the 83 but will do that later..

Thanks..
Please refer to this topic; I'd go for the CE. Feel free to ask any questions you may have!
Thank you!
Ok here are a few ?'s regarding the 83+.

1) I bought the usb cable and it works fine, but when i try to do a backup it gets to the end and then says it fails. However sometimes it still leaves a file behind that might be the backup. How can I tell and any idea what makes it fail?

2) I want to backup because I tried to install a sreadsheet app from TI and it says I don't have the memory (hence wanting a newer unit-but can't find any deals right now). I wanted to backup so I could remove some programs already installed. One looks useless (easydata) unless you buy hardware from the company, so this one can go. Any others you know are of no use?

I have only had this a few days so really newbie at it..

Thanks!
Which file is it leaving behind? I assume you're storing the backup on your computer? If so, I don't know why it'd error out and leave something behind. Try backing up small chunks of data at a time, like 10 at most at once. Then when a chunk fails to transfer, you can narrow down which program is causing the trouble easier.

To get more space, I'd suggest deleting languages you aren't using, that frees up lots of space. Other than that, it's up to you to decide if an app is useless to you or not. I don't think there are any other apps like easydata.

I don't have a TI 83 plus myself, nor do I use the old TI Connect (which is what I assume you're using) so I hope this was all accurate! Smile
Ok thanks...I will try removing sections of the backup to try and find where it is failing.

The file is probably the backup file it created but never finished.

Ok will look for langs to delete...thanks..

I tried doing 1 part at a time (apps, arc, ram) and it failed on each one.

I will have a new CE tomorrow but still would like to figure out what is wrong. Is there anyway to troubleshoot TI-Connect?

Thanks.
