I am trying to use the robotics software suite for the first time. I have some dynamixel xl320 hooked to a OpenCM9.04...
no problems using the OpenCM IDE, but cant get the board to connect to the PC software such as R+ Motion... It tries but fails.
Is this done through the micro USB port on the board? do I need a programmer module for this to work? Is there any code that I need to load from the IDE to get it to communicate with the software?

I have a USB2Dynamixel adapter and have the USB Downloader LN-101 on the way...

Still not sure what is the correct way to get the hardware and software to talk...

You have to connect it to the PC with the USB cable and run a controller firmware update using RoboPlus Manager to erase any existing sketch from the OpenCM IDE and replace it with the Robotis RoboPlus firmware.

THANK YOU!!! The firmware was way out of date!!!
Now the software connects but the servos still are not being seen... Just before I posted this, I finished updating the firmware on the 3 XL320s they are all up to date, connected in chain to the board and have two batteries attached...
the R+Motion software just shows ? next to the servos and says joint count:0
