226  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: So frustrated with Arduino! on: June 27, 2012, 01:22:50 pm
A good, basic start would be to post the code that you uploaded to the boards.
227  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: Programming without bootloader on: June 27, 2012, 01:05:50 am
I was not choosing File -> Upload Using Programmer.  I was clicking on the Upload button on the toolbar.

Thank you for pointing out my mistake!
228  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Programming without bootloader on: June 26, 2012, 09:09:36 pm
I have been referring to this page: http://arduino.cc/en/Hacking/Programmer to try and program my Mega2560 without a bootloader.

I have edited the preferences.txt and boards.txt files as indicated.  I am using the USBasp from ProtoStack.
I have selected USBasp as the programmer from the IDE.
Whenever I try to upload, I get an error that Serial "" cannot be found.

Any ideas what I can check?
229  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: What is happening to the ARM based Arduino on: June 26, 2012, 07:34:19 pm
This silent treatment is really a slap in the face to the very people that are the biggest supporters of Arduino.  I really like the Arduino concept, but this silence has caused me to purchase more capable products from other companies and start learning them.  There is just no excuse for the way that this has been handled.  Deadlines can slip, plans can change.  All it takes is a little common courtesy and communication to explain the what/where/why of a product being nearly a year late.

I hate to sound prejudicial, but is it just a culture gap such that Italians do not believe that the rest of the world is deserving of open, honest communications?
230  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Re: make an arduino with MSP430 on: June 22, 2012, 01:39:54 am
By arduino circuit do you mean a circuit designed for the arduino that you can control with the MSP430?
The MSP430 can control plenty of circuits designed for the arduino, if you know how to port the sketch
to the MSP430

Or are you talking about making an arduino board using the MSP430?  If so, the MSP is an arduino-like board, but it uses a different chip and different programming language.
231  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Guidance on first project, parts needed. on: June 21, 2012, 09:46:00 pm
That driver board is configured to drive two servos.
232  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.
233  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
234  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?
235  Topics / Science and Measurement / Re: personal weather station on: June 19, 2012, 10:31:11 pm
Thank you for sharing this.  I have been working on a very similar project myself.  You may have just saved me tons of work.                                                         
236  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.
237  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.
238  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?
239  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...
240  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.
