So I was recently handed two broken bioloids. One was slightly responsive, but would not respond properly to code. After getting some advice, I took it apart, recovered the firmware on each dynamixel and rebuilt the robot. It works great now!
Anyway, my first thought, obviously, was to do the same thing with the other. But I'm running into this problem with the dynamixel wizard. Half of the dynamixels aren't being recognized at all when I go to recover firmware, and the other half give me the option to recover the firmware for AX-12A, but they're all AX-12+. I don't know why that is not presenting as an option, as it did with the last rebuild.
So that's the problem. Any ideas?
