Solution 10420: Correcting the Error "Cannot Transfer. The File Format is Invalid" When Sending the Advanced Statistics Program to the TI-86
How can I correct the error, "Cannot transfer. The file format is invalid" when sending the Advanced Statistics program to the TI-86?
The TI-86 Advanced Statistics program is a group file. The TI Connect 1.6 does not recognize a TI-86 group files, so the error, Cannot transfer. The file format is invalid will appear when attempting to transfer this program by dragging its icon onto the TI Connect shortcut icon.
To correct the issue, ungroup the TI-86 Advanced Statistics program by double-clicking on it. This will ungroup the one file into four separate files. The four files can each be sent to the calculator by dragging and dropping each file onto the TI Connect shortcut icon.
