I have a Ti-84 Plus Silver Edition calculator, and I wanted to put a few games on it. I downloaded Ti Connect and I have the right USB cable, but every time I try and transfer anything to my calculator, it goes for a few seconds, and then a box pop's up and says "Access Denied." What do I do? I doesn't go all the way, so there's no way that anything got onto my calculator, I've checked. I can't get anything, not even the MirageOS or ION software onto my calculator.

Is the USB cable plugged into the computer, or a USB hub?
Sometimes hardware plugged into a hub, won't work properly.

First, the calculator was NOT attached to the computer during the TI Connect install, right?

I'm gonna assume that you can connect to the calculator. When you click on Explorer, it identifies the calculator on the USB Port. It should show you all the programs and apps installed in your calculator. Also, you do have the latest operating system installed on your calculator, it shoud be OS 2.43.

Finally the programs you are attempting to install have the extension .8xp. All you need to do is drag and drop that file or files on the Explorer window. Or you can drag and drop the whole .zip file on the explorer window, a dialog box will pop up and you can select only the program files.

You did say that Mirage OS was NOT currently installed on your calculator??
