just got the Arduino Diecimila today. played around with the blink program but can't find any information on how to remove the sketch. i couldn't find info on auto format, didn't want to cause more of a mess for my newbie self. how do i get rid of the blink sketch so the blinking stops?

Upload this sketch:

Code: [Select]
void setup(){}
void loop(){}

Thanks, that stopped it. It did say "couldn't determine program size", but i'm guessing thats fine since its basically an empty program.

I was being a little bit cheeky with my response, but there really is no notion of "formatting" or "erasing" the chip, at least not in the Arduino IDE.

I get that "couldn't determine program size" message occasionally, but I never know why.  For me, that "empty" program is 622 bytes in size.

I get that message all the time but it doesn't seem to be causing any problems

I usually get that message the first time I upload in a session and it's OK after that.
