I was trying to download the RobotC firmware onto a new NXT brick when I got an error message—something about 'boot mode', I wish I remembered more—and then the NXT went into the dreaded purgatory known as 'clicking brick syndrome'. I've already tried all the basic suggestions (I tried every possible combination of replacing batteries and performing hard resets, I tried reloading the NXT-G firmware, &c.) but nothing has worked yet. When I plug the brick into a computer (using Windows 7), it gives me the "new device plugged-in" chime, but neither RobotC nor the Mindstorms NXT software recognize the device, both returning errors like "No NXT bricks connected via USB" and "Cannot locate NXT device to download firmware."Other than going out and buying another NXT brick, what should I do??
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
