    I am unable to connect using my PC. I am using Windows 10 and it cannot find the device. When I plug in the cord, it is finding the device but will not connect. I have tried what you show above and the directions on the disk. Also, I am also unable to update the driver from the disk. Any ideas?

      You should consider downloading the advanced user's guide, it may help you.
      What mode are you using the calculator in? Some of the matrix functions do not work as expected in algebraic mode (remember, this is an RPN calculator with algebraic mode stuck on top).
      Complex numbers are easily entered with (R,I) format. Conversion is done by Rect, Cylindrical and spherical available via NXT key (in RPN mode).
