211  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Intermittent upload failures on Arduino Uno on: March 16, 2013, 06:07:21 pm
If you look at Task Manager and list processes, do you see any avrdude processes?

If so, kill them.

Then try uploading again.

I am assuming that you are still able to upload using a different machine, therefore we know the Uno is okay and we are focusing on what is wrong with Windows.

Try holding the reset button while selecting upload.
Continue to hold the reset button during the compile phase.
Release the reset button when you see uploading in the output section.

If this works, then there is something wrong with the Auto-Reset mechanism.

Performing an upload with the Shift button held down yields the following error;

   avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device "usb"


Upload with Shift will try to upload the sketch using a programmer. I don't believe this is what you are tyring to accomplish, so that error is expected if you are not trying to program via a programmer.

If you are trying to get Verbose compiler output, go to Preferences and then select the verbose output checkbox.
214  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Windows recognizes Arduino but wont assign COM port on: March 15, 2013, 11:15:51 pm
I would suggest trying the IDE installer created by Eried:
http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,118440.0.html

Alot of people have had good results with his installer.

The ATmega16U2 does not need/use FTDI drivers.

The only reason your ATmega16U2 showed up in device manager after trying to load the FTDI drivers, is that during the FTDI install, it caused Windows to re-enumerate the devices.

I suspect you had installed FLIP from Atmel before doing this and the re-enumerate caused Windows to find the Atmel DFU drivers in the FLIP package.
216  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Millenove looks like board on: March 15, 2013, 07:36:06 am
Since this board is not an official Arduino, it's anybody's guess as to what bootloader is installed in it.

You may need to keep trying different board types in the tools menu, until you find one that works.

Otherwise, you may try getting support from the place you purchased the board.
217  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Lilypad usb and Windows 8 trouble on: March 15, 2013, 07:30:01 am
This version of the Lilypad does not use the FTDI chip, that is why installing the FTDI drivers is not working.
http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardLilyPadUSB

First, make sure you get Arduino 1.0.4, so you don't have to worry about signed drivers.

After downloading and extracting 1.0.4 to a folder, follow these steps to install the driver:

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
218  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Launch4j error - IDE won't start - Please HELP!! on: March 14, 2013, 09:27:49 pm
The launch4j log indicates the IDE is trying to use the 64 bit version of Java.

The IDE is not 64 bit compatible and requires 32 bit Java.

The log also indicates it is not able to locate the version of Java that is bundled with the IDE.
Can you verify that the Java directory is located at the location in the log file:
Check launcher:   C:\Arduino\arduino-1.5.2-windows\arduino-1.5.2\java\bin\javaw.exe (n/a)
219  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: PC Doesn’t Recognized USB on: March 14, 2013, 10:54:10 am
What type of USB cable are you using?

Make sure it isn't just a Charging cable.

Often, the USB micro cables only have power and do not have the data lines.
220  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino 1.0.4 IDE problem on: March 13, 2013, 04:20:13 pm
I don't have any other ideas, at this time.

Hopefully someone else can suggest some other ideas.

Do you have a bluetooth device with several com ports?
If so, disable your bluetooth device.

There is a known issue with the software getting sluggish when trying to enumerate bluetooth com ports.

222  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Programming Arduino Mini with Usb to serial converter: How to? on: March 13, 2013, 03:07:27 pm
You do not need to worry about the programmer setting. This is only used when burning the bootloader.

Do you have your usbserial adapter wired up like the photo in the link below:

Make sure you have the cap for Auto-Reset and that the TX and RX lines are connected appropriately.
RX -> TX
TX -> RX

You need to use hub4com:
http://com0com.cvs.sourceforge.net/viewvc/com0com/hub4com/ReadMe.txt?revision=RELEASED

You can connect a physical com port to 1 or more virtual com ports.
224  Development / Other Hardware Development / Re: Arduino Clone Not Working with Win7 64-bit on: March 13, 2013, 09:27:26 am
Take a look at:
http://com0com.sourceforge.net/

This should be able to do what you need.
225  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: cant find Arduino UNO (COmxx) under Ports (COM & LPT) on: March 12, 2013, 11:07:31 pm
This is the procedure I use to install the Arduino drivers:

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
