Sounds like it may be a problem with the infra red tower driver.  Is it usb or the older serial port type?  I havent used the old rcx for a long time and mine uses the older serial type connection.

Yes, the previous post is correct. It is most likely the IR tower not transmitting correctly. We also had a lot of issues trying to download the core code. We ended up

1. Replace the batteries to ensure they are full power
2. Upload the code in a dark room with NO other IR devices around ... esp sunlight that can really cause issues. You are most likely in a noisy IR environment ...
3. You RCX may just be bad ... perhaps see if you can get someone elses RCX to connect in your environment?
