I suggest to use the serial interface. http://arduino.cc/playground/Main/InterfacingWithHardware#Communication
The OS does not really matter. The question is which programming language you want to use on your PC. Choose whatever you prefer and learn to use the serial interface in the language of your choice. I would choose either C# or Python depending on what I am after. Your preferences might be different. http://arduino.cc/playground/Main/InterfacingWithSoftware
Don't know GoBetwino, but when I look here: http://arduino.cc/playground/Interfacing/GoBetwino I see in the list what we can do with it: "Read a file and return data to Arduino." AreN#t there any examples in the package? (I've not downloaded it). Perhaps Processing will help? http://www.processing.org, too.best regardsAndreas
If you want to automatically transmit it this is the way to go. If you want to copy it manually you could use the serial monitor. If you are satisfied to transmit it statically you could compile it into your program. Until you explain clearly what you want to achieve more specific advice is close to impossible.Maybe the GoBetwino will fit you bill but unless you get more specific nobody can tell you.
In the GoBetwino download there's a PDF file describing the sample code that also comes with the download.In there you can see how your Arduino program can ask GoBetwino to send over a line from a text file.
I made it You can not use it to send a text file as a whole unit to Arduino, but you can use it to send a line at a time from a text file.Check the documentation page 26.
Can any1 help me out??really appreciate thanks.
