    i just got a Ti/84 plus from texas instruments and i want to run games on it. now have i downloaden MirageOS and it works fin but if i dropp the files of the game (pokemonRed btw) it says :insufficient memory (8C08000C)

    i also checked my ram (which is 21037 and my ARC which is 9190) so that isnt the problem ( i think)

    here is also a picture

    does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

    Actually, you run out of space. Program like Pokemon Red goes into archive (ARC).

    Go delete some programs.

    Well I did a rough calculation, all files take up 25,600 bytes. So that's how much you'll need for ARC.

    I don't have TI-84 Plus with me (sold it) to test it.

    I believe you can just use the calculator itself to delete files.

    Don't use MirageOS, get DoorsCS. It's much much better IIRC (it's been quite some time since I last used my TI). It can even run files from the archive by temporarily copying them to RAM.

    I don't know. Help.
    1. Go to the app you want to delete.
    2. Press "del".
    3. Press yes when asked if you are sure.
    4. The app has been deleted.

    Just checked on my own TI-84 plus to be sure. If you delete enough you should be able to play your game (I use MirageOS too).

    The TI... IS a calculator. How can it not load a calculator?

    I'm not sure, but I don't think the easydata app has anything to do with that. Are you sure you're doing everything right?

    I can't get over the fact that schools still have students wasting their money on those overpriced and outdated calculators.

    Are you SURE your calculator is securly connected to your PC and turned ON? If nothing helps you could also try to reset your calculator.

    It's more like textbook author/publisher still recommend TI-83/84 even though there are far better calculator out there.

    A smart student will realize that TI-34 will work for pretty much every level math up to Pre-Calculus. From pre-calculus forward, or when going into statistics, it is pretty much absolutely necessary to at least have a TI-83 (Plus) though. Plus, they may be expensive, but they will work for absolutely ever, and due to them always being needed, they have a decent resell value if you need some cash and no longer need the calculator. It probably doesn't help that Texas Instruments has a bit of a monopoly on the high level calculator market, primarily because every textbook that requires calculator use has a TI calculator as the base. Many times, comparable calculators from other brands are either missing functions that teachers, textbooks, and general formulas will mostly use, or are unnecessarily convoluted in trying to make the calculator seem unique.

    So yeah, expensive? I guess. For most people here, you can pick up a used TI-84 for around $80, which, when considering multi-year usage, isn't really so bad. Hell, a person can pick up a TI-83 Plus for about $45 used, and that has gotten me through higher level math courses fine.

    Also, outdated? Do you expect some great leaps in the field of general calculations and established formulas hundreds of years old so that we can have newer and even more expensive calculators? If you happen to try to argue that phones and tablets have graphing calculator apps, well, I hope you have enough common sense to realize that all because something can be a calculator doesn't mean a teacher is going to let you use it as one.

    Well, the PC connection problem was solved via PM. Just continue deleting files until you have enough space for Pokemon. I'm sure the problem you had before wasn't caused because you deleted the easydate app, so don't worry about getting the same problem.
