Hello,

I have recently purchased an abb 6400 with S4 controller and all went fine until today when I got a battery error. Removed the batteries in the cabinet and they were dead. I put them back in and ordered new ones that will get here next week. I tried again to power on the cabinet with the dead batteries in and it asked for key disc and system discs. It all went good until disc 4 when I get TPU lost communication error and the led on the floppy drive remains green. I waited for an hour and nothing happened. Tried different discs with disc4 files and I get stuck in the same point. The discs contain RW 3.2

Can this issue be generated by the dead batteries?

main computer is: DSQC 361
memory expansion DSQC 323
robot computer: DSQC 373

Sounds like your controller is an M98/M98A S4C.  If the operating system does not load by the middle of disk 3, then you have an issue with one of the first 3 disks, not disk 4.  In the past, ABB was kind enough to let you download the BW3.2 disk pack, 2700-2.56, you supplied the floppies and the key disk.
See this thread for more information: https://www.robot-forum.com/robotforum/abb-robot-forum/installation-of-robotware-3-2-on-s4c/msg120048/#msg120048

I finally managed to install the system. It seems I had a bunch of bad discs that I was swapping around. I bough new discs and everything went smooth.

Thank you!

Hi,
Its worth upgrading the disc drive to USB.
Disc,s get corrupted too easily.
It makes it so much easier to load everything back in.

If you need info let me know.
