1006  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Using Arduino UNO and Arduino duemilanove from the same PC on: July 02, 2011, 09:57:57 am
Yip - Think of it as 2 different bits of hardware, your pc will install a driver for each separately . So no Problem. I run an arduino duemilanove and an UNO, ans a USB Serial adaptor with (currently) a self designed Arduino based board, and I can program, and serially access all independently.
1007  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: button on digital pin 0 and 1, pin 0 stay's high...? on: July 02, 2011, 08:33:25 am
Can you supply a circuit diagram for your layout - are you using pull down resistors? you could also turn on the internal pull up resistors using digitalWrite(pin,HIGH); and switch connected to input pin and ground. I also recommend not using  pins 0&1 - More problem than its worth. If you need more digital pins, and you are not using analog then use analog pins 0 - 5 as digital 15 - 20.


Hope this helps

Have you tried downloading an older version? Maybe that would help (also try running it as administrator)

Hi - I have windows 7 64 bit. I have a folder in my root directory I created called 'mytools' and unzipped the arduino zip inside it - I just run it from there. All works fine.

Its the correct chip!!
Have a <b>CLOSE</b> look at the chip and surrounding components for missaligned components or dry looking solder joints.
If there is, fix that if you can.
But as its under a year old (assuming its official) 
Best to return it for exchange for a new one. If its a clone - Contact the supplier and see what they are willing to do.

Can you post a link where you purchased the arduino please - are you sure it has a at90usb82 - it may have an ftdi chip - if you don't have a link then post a close up picture of the small chip close to the USB Chip.

shop.badnetwork.co.uk/mike/ShiftShield32.zip - that has the Library and 2 examples.


All the best

1013  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: problem uploading to atmega on breadboard on: June 25, 2011, 02:21:19 pm
Hi, the chances are that the connections on the breadboard need re-made - pull all the wires, crystal caps what ever else you have on there, then re-build on a different location of the board I found this sorted every instance of this error on my breadboards.

Thats the 1st budget board away to fab-house - 97% utilisation (my best yet).

Helps when I get nice large boards to add  smiley-lol.

Not bad - filled in 5 days, helped by a large order from 'spider' - not a current forum member.
Some nice cool designs, and a few familiar ones. 
1015  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Chipkit problems. ¿100% compatible right? on: June 23, 2011, 08:48:17 am
Its not an arduino - it just has the same layout. Maybe you should ask in the chipkit forum for support.
1016  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: what does RESET actually do on: June 20, 2011, 03:31:28 pm
Hi Mike - Yip, if you got a boot-loaded chip - Its just a 'Hello, I'm working' flash from the boot-loader - After a second of not getting relevant data on the UART/SERIAL port at runs the installed sketch.

Hi all,

New Budget Service - single boards from £1.50 per Sq.Inch.

Checkout my site at www.badnetwork.co.uk/budget.html

Ideal for making that 1 off board for your own use.
1018  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Why can't I open sketchbook? on: June 18, 2011, 05:52:50 pm
The sketchbook will open after you save a new sketch.    smiley-wink
1019  Community / Products and Services / Re: Professional PCB fabrication - Batch Service 1 off's to Full Runs. on: June 18, 2011, 03:15:15 pm
15% of current Board left - Please have orders in by 5pm (BST) SUNDAY.

I designed this to use 8 pin ATtinys , got a few so if anyone want them, they can have them cheap:
