Texas Instruments has recently added anti-gaming firmware to their calculators. This means you will not be able to install ION or anything like that to your calculator unless you convert your calculator to a previous version. An example a calculator with this is: TI-84 C Silver Edition
how do i convert? Do i have to buy a new one?

where can you access your calculator RAM?
There should be a button to the right of the "Send to TI Device" window that says "Set to RAM" it will be usable when you select a program(s)

IMPORTANT NOTE: TI has recently added anti-gaming firmware to their calculators. If you use the TI-84 Plus C silver edition you will not be able to add games unless you convert your calculator to a previous version without this. I just want to put this out their so people don't waste their time like i did searching for a solution. Examples of not being able to install games are: for MirageOS, "This file is not compatible", for ION, it counts it as a syntax error when you try to execute it, etc.

i acciedently moved the whole ion folder over to my ti-84 plus, what do do?
what do i do?*

Ok Friends, I have good news for everyone. The reason that you cant put the Ion on your ram is because your moving the whole folder not the 3 individual files. right click on the 1.65k folder and click extract all. then open the new folder and send all there files to your calculator. hope this helps

It would've been nice for a file specification to tell the difference between the 1.75 KB ion file and the 1.65 KB. :\

I found the solution.
Get another cable.
My dad has this hi-speed cable and it works extremely well. The TI cable really is not good. Get another one from Frys or something.

My calculator is not connected I think. When I plug it in it says TI-84 Plus found. I can do all of the steps the thing is that it says their is not calculator detected. Any help?
