That driver board is configured to drive two servos.
227  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Windows prevents Arduino June update 101 from executing a second time. on: June 21, 2012, 09:11:34 pm
I am certain that message was not from Windows itself unless it was referencing DEP - Data Execution prevention.  If it did mention DEP, take a look at this http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875352

I would guess there is a 99% certainty that the message is related to a third-party security application that has decided that the arduino.exe file is malicious software.  Check whatever security software you have and figure out how to see the list of blocked applications.

You can also try booting into safe mode and see if it runs from there with the security software disabled.
228  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Arduino mega 2560 why aren't all the pins broken out? on: June 21, 2012, 08:58:42 am
I have no shields designed just for my mega.  As far as a protoshield goes, I think SeeedStudio covered that with this: http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/seeeduino-mega-protoshield-kit-p-597.html?cPath=132_134
229  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: Arduino mega 2560 why aren't all the pins broken out? on: June 20, 2012, 09:23:07 pm
I need to replace my mega.  After reading this I think I will get the Seeedstudio Mega2560.  Anything to be aware of before I order it?

Thank you for sharing this.  I have been working on a very similar project myself.  You may have just saved me tons of work.                                                         
231  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: LCD Display on: June 19, 2012, 07:34:15 pm
It is compatible with your Arduino.  However, it has a parallel interface, so you will need about 11 pins on your Arduino to make it work.  You would be better off getting a serial display.  And that price is a bit high as well.
232  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Upgrading to Arduino Version 1.0.1 on: June 19, 2012, 01:37:32 pm
Considering the changes, I believe that it's definitely worth updating.

You can have as many versions of the Arduino IDE on your computer as you want.  I currently have five versions for testing - 018,020,023,1.0, and 1.0.1. They all play nicely together.
233  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Arduino Mega Problem :( on: June 18, 2012, 08:01:03 pm
Also, why don't you try changing the ports in device manager to something less than 10 as suggested in the AXE027 manual?
234  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Arduino Mega Problem :( on: June 18, 2012, 07:50:46 pm
You will get much more help if you drop the "elite" attitude, answer the questions, and provide pictures as requested.  But hey, it's up to YOU to provide the needed information, not US to pry it out of you.
You are so POSITIVE that you KNOW what the problem is.  IF that were true, you would NOT be having this problem in the first place.

There is no finer source of Arduino help than right here, but you have to meet us at least half way...
235  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Can't upload to Mega2560 on: June 18, 2012, 01:48:01 pm
Posting the code and the full error messages would be a good start for getting help with this.
236  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Arduino UNO smells funny when power is connected to it on: June 18, 2012, 01:42:09 pm
Is it me, or does the smaller Atmega (USB controller) look like what smoked?

It looks the same way to me.
237  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Arduino Mega Problem :( on: June 18, 2012, 01:32:01 pm
Have you verified that the baud settings on all serial devices involved are the same?
238  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Unable to Install Arduino Uno Acer Aspire One Windows 7 on: June 17, 2012, 02:00:24 pm
Glad that you got it installed. 
239  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Unable to Install Arduino Uno Acer Aspire One Windows 7 on: June 17, 2012, 02:23:09 am
The admin command prompt will probably open to C:\Windows\System32 - just run it right there.
240  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Unable to Install Arduino Uno Acer Aspire One Windows 7 on: June 17, 2012, 01:54:01 am
You followed the steps exactly as stated on the Arduino site?
Are you logged in as an administrator?

If so, try booting into safe mode and doing the driver install from there.

If that fails, open up the start menu and type cmd, then right click and
select run as administrator or press Ctrl+Shift+Enter at once, and then
type sfc /scannow to check for corrupt system files.
