Troubleshooting TI-89 Connection to Windows 7 PC

In summary, the conversation is about the speaker trying to connect their TI-89 calculator to their computer running Windows 7 in order to transfer notefolio files. They have the necessary CD and USB, but are having trouble with the TI Connect software not recognizing the calculator. They are asking for help in finding a solution, and a suggestion is made to try downloading a more recent version of TI Connect that is compatible with Windows 7. It is also mentioned that Texas Instruments does not support 64-bit operating systems, so an alternative software, TiLP, is suggested.

Okay, so I'm trying to connect my TI-89 to my computer (I run windows 7 by the way) so I can put notefolio files on the calculator. I have the CD and usb that comes with the calculator, and used those to connect to the computer and download the TI connect software.

This is where the problems started, TI connect wouldn't recognize the software. I figured it was because there was no driver installed, but when I go to the driver files folder that comes with the TI connect software, my computer can't detect any drivers. Nor can it find them online, so my my computer doesn't recognize the calculator.

Please, does anybody know how I can get my TI-89 connected and working?

Is your OS 64 bit? If so, texas instruments does not support 64 bit OS yet.
