I've noticed that this question has been asked by a few other folks. Has anyone tried uploading the *.bin file to the NXT using the Lego Mindstorms GUI tool?
I thought this might work, but it didn't...after renaming the Tune.bin to Tune.rfw and uploading, it did say everything was complete...but the brick didn't respond or play any sounds or anything.
Any other ideas? My next attempt will be to reinstall the libUSB.
