I have a problem with my lathe that has Fanuc 18-T control. The problem is that I have to have a computer for tranfering programs to lathe's memory and back, and now my computer is broken.. I had a very, very old computer with no graphic operating system, just dos-based software for data transfer and simple editing, and the programs were stored simply as xxxx.min files. I once opened one file with notepad and it only contained the code, nothing else.
Now that my computer is broken, I have to have some kind of software through which I can do the transfer, can anyone tell me what kind of program should I get, possibly running on a bit newer computer and a graphic OS such as Win XP or older? Or even Linux, though I don't know how to use it. Any free and easy software, I have no idea what should I get or where to find it. It doesn't even need to be a kind of software that has editing state, just one that does the transferring to lathes memory and back.
