61  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Uno Installation Problem on: June 08, 2013, 05:28:55 pm
Just wanted you to know that I have an UNO R1 that I have used with every version of Arduino IDE from 20 to 1.0.5 on both OSX and Windows XP/7 without any of the issues you are seeing.

You are definitely seeing some strange issues, but this is not the norm, in my experience.

To load a new sketch on your Micro:

Hold the reset button and continue to hold while selecting Upload.
When the IDE shows Uploading...
Release the reset button.

Try this with Blink or some other known good sketch.

I would post your question to that thread I referenced.

Hopefully one of the posters on that thread will respond with an answer.

Yes, you should see everything you send in the receive window.
If you don't, that is a problem.

Seems like you have something wrong with the adapter.

BTW, the RX i = input TX o = output
It is letting you know the direction of the signal.

I wouldn't worry too much about connections until after you can get the loop back to work.
This is indicating a problem with the FTDI adapter.

Have you tried the loop back test on the FTDI adapter to make sure it is working properly.
Connect TX and RX, then open the serial monitor and see if everything you send is echoed back.
If so, then you can focus on your connections or the Arduino.

Hold down reset and continue to hold reset while selecting Upload.
When the IDE shows Uploading... release the reset button.

This should allow you to upload new firmware.
70  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Uno Installation Problem on: June 06, 2013, 01:41:57 pm
This indicates you have an Arduino UNO version 1 or 2.

I can't think of any reason why a working Arduino would not work properly after simply loading the Blink sketch.

Sorry, I am all out of ideas.
71  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Uno Installation Problem on: June 06, 2013, 09:57:26 am
What is the Hardware ID for the Arduino in device manager?

Go to Device Manager
Right Click comm port
Select Properties
Select Details tab
Change Property to Hardware Ids
What is displayed under Value?
72  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: problem with arduino nano on: June 05, 2013, 03:47:37 pm
The Nano uses a FTDI chip for USB to Serial comms.

Have you installed the FTDI drivers:

If so, it could be a bad USB cable or flaky USB cable connection. Try a different USB cable.
73  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Rainbowduino 3.0b - stk500_getsync() on: June 05, 2013, 01:30:15 pm
What version of the FTDI driver do you have?

You might try changing the version of FTDI driver, see here:

74  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Rainbowduino 3.0b - stk500_getsync() on: June 05, 2013, 10:05:48 am
What bootloader file did you reprogram?

That will determine which board you need to select in the IDE.
75  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino Uno Installation Problem on: June 05, 2013, 10:04:14 am
You should try updating your version of usbser.sys to a more recent version:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943198

Or you could try upgrading XP to SP3.

Com1 is probably a com port that is built into your system.
You don't want to share the same com port with a physical com port and the Arduino virtual com port.

After you update usbser.sys, I would uninstall the Arduino com port in device manager and then try to re-install again.
