After having bought the product mentioned in the title, I tried connecting to a Windows XP SP3 laptop, but the computer did not detect it. I repeated the experiment on different devices with the following operative systems: another computer running WinXP SP3, a computer running Windows 7 and a Macintosh running OSX 10.5.8. None of these detected the Arduino. The experiments were made with two different cables which have been functioning with other peripherals.
Next, I tried to force Windows XP to detect the hardware and installed the drivers provided by ide 1.0.2. By the end of the installation, I was shown the error code 10 (This device cannot start) and the following was on the system information page:
Device: Arduino Mega R3 (com6)
PNP Device ID: ROOT\UNKNOWN\0000
Error Code: This device cannot start
I verified the Windows registry and found the key (RumOnce)as already suggested on another topic of the forum.
I would be glad if anyone could help me with this problem.
Thank you for your attention.
