I am starting our first Mega2560 board. Windows 7 tries to load drivers from Microsoft update but does not find anything, it wont find those from C:\Program Files\arduino-1.0.1\drivers either. What is wrong?This particular piece of crap has Windows 7 starter edition in it, could that cause problems?
HiI believe you. But Windows 7 starter and Vista do any find any suitable drivers there. I'll try with an machine XP at home, it usually works. By the way, device manage says it is a Mega16U2. Should there be some Arduino specific bootloader in that USB cpu chip too?
Thanks. I downloaded that enhanced IDE, I'll check it. I wonder if it matters that my ATmega16u2 chip is not from Arduino, it is bought from Farnell.
