Solution 11455: Files Incompatible with TI-SmartView™ Software.

What files are incompatible with TI-SmartView?

TI-SmartView will not open or use the following file formats:

TI-83 Files:

Any file extension that begins .83 will not load into the TI-SmartView software, even though they are compatible with the TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus. To use these files:

• Rename the extension to be a .8x file. For instance, the filename foo.83l (a TI-83 list file) would be renamed to .8xl (a TI-83 Plus/84 Plus list file).

• Copy the file from a TI-83 to a TI-83 Plus or TI-84 Plus. Once the files are on the TI-83 Plus or TI-84 Plus calculator, use TI Connect to copy the files to the computer. The files copied over will be in the proper .8x format.

TI-84 Plus Silver Edition and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition Incompatibility:

• In TI-SmartView 4.0 you can change between calculator models TI-84 Plus Silver Edition and TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition by going to [View] [Graphing Calculator Model]. Please refer to the below chart to determine if a TI-84 Plus Silver Edition file can transfer to the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition and vice versa:

Please Note: App Vars and Programs should be reviewed for use after the transfer between the TI-84 Plus Family and the TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition graphing calculators. Some App Vars may not setup an App as expected. Some Programs will need to be modified due to the difference in screen resolution and new commands.
