I'm having trouble getting the Motor Driver 1A Dual TB6612FNG (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9457) to work with my two 30:1 Micro Metal Gear motors  (http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/993).


My motor driver


I'm a bit unsure if I'm wiring it up correctly (Ive tried the bildr tutorial - http://bildr.org/2012/04/tb6612fng-arduino/ but can't get any movement out of my motors).

(Ive previously tried a motor shield - that didn't work either, even on other arduinos)

Anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

No idea, I'd double check your wiring against that bildr article, but you could post photos here of your setup,
that's likely to provide the most information.

The bildr article is for two motors so you can simplify things by removing the wiring for one of the motors,
and adapting the example sketch.

Well do you know for a fact that the motors are ok?- you tried to hook them up directly to some power to see if they work?
