 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,

I've had a duemilanove for some time now, about 3 years and I've used it quite alot.  It hasn't burned out or anything but occasionally it has a hard time recieveing a program while uploading.  It gets fixed when I hold the cord in the connector with some pressure but I'm wondering if that is normal or its just getting old or something.

Anybody else noticed this?

Could be a bad connector or cable.  Try a different USB cable.  If that doesn't help, check the solder joints on the Arduino USB jack. Perhaps a connection is cracked.  Re-soldering should help.

Hmmm, i think it may be the cable. Its the one that came with the arduino  but its been though quite a bit.
