1  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino DUE - Can not upload on: July 23, 2013, 09:33:06 am
You need to download 1.5.2 from the Arduino downloads page.
Then select DUE from the boards menu.

1.0.5 does not support the DUE.
Duemilanove is not the same as DUE.

See this thread for more info on the FTDI issue:
http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=173676.msg1311792#msg1311792

If the older FTDI driver solves the problem, that is an indication the FTDI chips used on that device may be fakes.

Reply #4 of this thread is the one where Oddwires mentions the fake FTDI chips.

After some investigations with FTDI regarding the issues mentioned within this blog regarding the “FTDI FT232RL USB to Serial adapter module USB to RS232 for Arduino”, we have discovered this module is not an FTDI manufactured product, and also utilizes a non-genuine FT232RL USB bridge chip on the PCB. The issues reported here are due to the chip not being a genuine FTDI chip. We have removed these modules from sale on our website.smiley-sad-blue

You should check out this thread, apparently there are some fake FTDI FT232RL chips out there:

Download 1.5.2 from the links on this page:

When you release the reset button, the bootloader will run for several seconds waiting for a new sketch. If it times out, the sketch in firmware will run.
This is why you need to hold the reset button until you see Uploading in the IDE.
The upload process should find the Leonardo bootloader and upload the new sketch.

The only time I have ever seen that is when you are selecting "Upload Using Programmer Ctrl + Shift + U"

You need to select the Upload icon or use Upload Ctrl + U
9  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: problem with Arduino Leonardo on: July 09, 2013, 07:59:04 am
Press and hold the Reset button.
Upload a new sketch from the IDE while holding the Reset button.
When the IDE shows Uploading, release the Reset button.
10  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Cannot find hence install Arduino Uno driver on Windows 8 on: July 08, 2013, 08:49:44 am
This version of the Arduino software will install the software and drivers for you:
http://arduino.googlecode.com/files/arduino-1.0.5-windows.exe

The drivers included with this version are compatible with Windows 8.
11  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Burning the Bootloader on ATMega328 using Arduino UNO as ISP on: July 02, 2013, 10:45:38 am
Yes, you can reprogram the bootloader.

Since the original fuses were probably set for external clock, you will need an external clock to reprogram it.

http://www.avrfreaks.net/modules/FreaksArticles/files/21/Why%20you%20need%20a%20Clock%20Source.pdf
"To program the chip you need an oscillator source. But for example if you were using the internal oscillator, then accidentally enabled the external oscillator input, you won't be able to re-program! To reprogram you will have to get a TTL or CMOS level oscillator signal and apply it to the XTAL1. You could have also possibly change the clock source to an external crystal or external RC oscillator, so try all the different possibilities of oscillator sources to get the chip re-programmed."

This patched version of RXTX may be similar to the link you already posted:

14  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Micro - IDE trying to upload to wrong COM Port ! on: July 01, 2013, 11:50:39 am
I think you have identified one of the limitations of the Leonardo/Micro bootloading behavior.

When you upload code to the Leonardo/Micro it causes the device to reset.
When the bootloader is enumerated by the system, the IDE doesn't know what COM port it will appear on, so it will poll each of the available COM ports until it gets the desired response and then continues with loading the new sketch.

Glad you were able to get it working.

This behavior is something to keep in mind to help others troubleshoot similar symptoms.
15  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Micro - IDE trying to upload to wrong COM Port ! on: June 28, 2013, 02:01:17 pm
The Micro is very similar to the Leonardo.
It is normal to have two different COM ports. One for sketches and another when the bootloader is running.

See here for more detials:
http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/ArduinoLeonardo

If you open Device Manger and watch the Ports section, what happens when you press the reset button and release it?

You should see COM9 disappear and you should see another COM port appear.
