Hi folks as per the title - I'm new here so "Hi"

Just got a uno and I'm starting to learn the ropes.

Initially, I couldn't get it to work and was starting to get stressed (it powered up and the pre-loaded 'blink' started working, but I couldn't reprogram it). After reading the various online guides, I resorted to changing the USB cable. Lo and behold, it all started working.

The odd thing is, the cable I was using worked fine on a printer, so I don't understand why it didn't work with the uno - any thoughts? (On a mac, both plugged in directly and via a hub)

Cheers

Paul

The end you plug into the Uno might be very slightly different from what would work on a printer. Or it could always have been damaged. Or maybe you did not push it in all the way. It usually clicks when it is in all the way, or at least mine does.

Don't know - it all seemed to click together OK.
Still, at least it's all working now  :)
