Post EV3 programming problem
Hi, I just bought an EV3 for my son. He is having problems with the programming. Please bear with me since this is all new to us. Every time he tries to write a new program in the robot, the new program erases the older ones. On the laptop, we create a new program for the robot and download it to the robot. The new program always erased the old program on the robot after we reconnect the robot to the laptop to download the new program to the robot. How do we fix this problem? TIA.

Does the new program use a different name? A program that has the same name as one already on the brick will overwrite it.

(By the way, I don't think you're on the right forum. I'm guessing you're programming the EV3 with the graphical language? This forum is for ROBOTC, which doesn't support EV3 just yet. :? )
