one more thing that i noticed is happening when i click upload to i/o board, the "L" light goes into a longer triplet , followed by a  long 15 sec pause, then repeats into the fast triplets, my interpretation is the board is laughing at me.

ok well i cant recall an arduino sticker but it says "arduino diecimilia" on it and looks exactly like http://www.arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/ArduinoDiecimila400.jpg

y, there is an onboard led , a few.

when i plugin in the usb i get a constant light on from the pwr
and then there are several brief  flahes on the TX and RX leds which then stop flashing
then on the L Led there are contant flashes that come in triplets and do not stop

when i press the reset button, the "L" led lights up three times in slightly longer succession then goes silent for about 15 secs and then changes to the rapid triplets identical to above.

when i put the led in grnd and 13 the blinks mimic the "L" led.

thanks for the replies guys, much appreciated

ere is an
so when i plug in the usb i get a couple flashes briefly

i just put the led in myself to try and get "Blink",
 it is a Diecimilia, says it right on board

hmm still no luck and im getting mails from people with the same problem wondering if i solved it smiley-sad

obviously there is a connection problem, is there a way to see if there are any conflicts with other versions of dlls or previous software on this pc because i have done lots of dev on this machine.

when i connect the usb
the pwr light is on, i also connect an led from gnd to 13 and it blinks in rapid succession. when i reset the there are 3 distinct blinks then nothing for a while then it goes back to blinkning

currently nothing is connected to the board other than the usb and an led

jumper is position on usb

i dont have any firewall, or blocking programs, this is all thats running

avrdude done.  Thank you.

is that baud rate suspect?

just got a new arduino Diecimila usb board  from sparkfun :

compiles blink fine, but when upload to I/O board i get:

ok thanks , i see the tutorial on max 232 and if its like the other ones looks simple enough.

luckily nothing has blown up chip still is working on usb  smiley-wink

Really appreciate the help guys

yes i have been checking the baud rate but i believe that it is correct.
and yes the connection is rs232, but i do not have a converter. I just have taken the lines directly from the serial port and connected to the arduino. Perhaps this does not work. Yes your right i should be trying to connect to a pc's hyperterminal first and validate all bauds. Not sure what you mean by 64 char buffer overruns but will look into that too.
not sure what upside down signal is but ill look into that too
Thanks for the advise

Anyone know if i can make a serial conneciton to an ocean server sensor using NewSoftSerial ? and if not how can i connect?

I have an arduino duemilonave(328) and i would like to talk to an OSServer 5500 sensor.

here are the links to the sensor:
http://www.robotshop.us/content/PDF/OS5000_Compass_Manual.pdf
http://www.robotshop.us/content/PDF/Compass_OS5000_Family.pdf

I have tested it and it seems to work via a sample exec that connects via usb and outputs tilt values. So i think the sensor is working correctly

When i set up the circuit to talk to the sensor via serial- i do get continous readings back from the sensor but they are all garbled and do not represent readable strings like:^*&^@&^WEUYI....
 
I am using NewSoftSerial library and i was wondering if i can actually use this lib connect to this type of sensor. The factory default baud is 19200, 8, 1, N according to the specs. Any help or tips would be much appreciated  smiley

here is the simple code i wrote:
Code:
#include <NewSoftSerial.h>


NewSoftSerial mySerial(3, 4);

int baudRate=19200;

void setup()
{
  Serial.begin(9600);
 
  mySerial.begin(baudRate);
 Serial.println("setup");
}

void loop() {
  int incoming = 0;
  if (Serial.available()) {
    
        incoming = Serial.read();
  }
  if(mySerial.available())
  {
    Serial.print(mySerial.read(),BYTE);
  }
 
}
