166  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: 2560 driver not installing, with a twist. on: April 03, 2013, 09:12:04 pm
VID_03EB is an Atmel vendor id.

It looks like the 16u2 USB to serial chip is in DFU mode.

You might be able to use the FLIP software from Atmel to reprogram the USB to serial code firmware in the 16u2.

Here is some more info about the process:

Have you seen this rather long thread about bricked 2560's using external power and USB at the same time:

What bootloader was installed on that 328? That determines what board you need to select in the IDE.

If it came with the Optiboot bootloader, then you would need to select UNO, for example.

Do you have the Serial Monitor open or any other application connected to that serial port?
You need to close the Serial Monitor or disconnect from that serial port before you upload again.

Otherwise, avrdude from the previous upload may not have terminated properly and still have that port open.

Open Task Manager to see if you have any avrdude processes still hanging around after you finish the upload.
171  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Leonardo Serial Port issue with Windows 8 on: April 02, 2013, 08:12:28 am
This is expected behavior with the Leonardo. I am surprised you did not see this behavior with your previous OS.

The Leonardo shows up as two different CDC devices. When the bootloader is running it shows up as a CDC device with a unique device ID and then during normal operation, it shows up as another CDC device with a different device ID.

Windows will see these as two different serial devices and assign a different comm port number to each one.

When uploading to the Leonardo, the IDE will reset the device to initiate the bootloader. That is when you see one of the ports disappear and the other port appear. Once the upload is complete, the sketch will run and switch to the previous port.

It's possible that on your previous systems, you had the same com port number assigned to each CDC device, so that it looked like the same port. However, you still should have seen it briefly disappear and then reappear during the upload.

The Comm Socket is the correct place to connect your FTDI cable.
The "Foca: A Tiny USB to UART Tool" serves the same purpose as your FTDI cable.

You will need to put a header on the Gboard and then rearrange the pins on the FTDI cable to match the following pinout:

Gboard:         FTDI:

NC
GND             black   - GND
VDD33           red     - VCC
Rx              orange  - TXD
Tx              yellow  - RXD
GND             NC
DTR             green   - RTS#

I think you might have better luck with this Arduino installer package:

Look for Unknown Device under Other devices in Device Manager.
Right click the Unknown Device in Device Manager
Select Update Driver Software
Select Browse my computer for software
Click Browse button
Select the Drivers folder under the location of your Arduino software installation. (Do not select the FTDI folder inside the Drivers folder)
Click OK
Click Next

If you have a Prolific USB to serial device, then you don't have a genuine Arduino UNO. You have a clone.

The problem with clones is that you don't know what bootloader is installed and if the board was made properly.

You should also make sure you have the latest drivers for the Prolific USB to serial device:

Do you know what bootloader is installed on your 328? This will determine what board you need to select in the Tools->Board menu.

If you have tried the UNO selection, then you should try Duemilanove and see if that works.
177  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding on: March 30, 2013, 09:39:40 pm
You need to make sure you have selected the correct board under Tools->Board menu.

The error stk500_recv() indicates avrdude is trying to communicate with the board using the stk500 protocol. The 2560 uses the stk500v2 protocol.

Do you have this Arduino Ethernet?
http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardEthernet

If so, then you need a USB to serial adapter to program the Arduino Ethernet. See the Programming Section from the link above.

Do you have a USB to Serial adapter?

Programming
It is possible to program the Arduino Ethernet board in two ways: through the 6 pin serial programming header, or with an external ISP programmer.
The 6-pin serial programming header is compatible with FTDI USB cables and the Sparkfun and Adafruit FTDI-style basic USB-to-serial breakout boards including the Arduino USB-Serial connector. It features support for automatic reset, allowing sketches to be uploaded without pressing the reset button on the board. When plugged into a FTDI-style USB adapter, the Arduino Ethernet is powered off the adapter.
You can also program the Ethernet board with an external programmer like an AVRISP mkII or USBTinyISP. To set up your environment for burning a sketch with a programmer, follow these instructions. This will delete the serial bootloader, however.
All the Ethernet example sketches work as they do with the Ethernet shield. Make sure to change the network settings for your network.

What sketch are you trying to load?

Can you load the Blink sketch?

Make sure you don't have any strings with more than three exclamation points "!!!"
The bootloader on the 2560 will enter a special mode if it sees a sequence of !!! while uploading.
