I am trying to work with two arduinoBT which I recently bought, but it is somehow like a nightmare.
I'm using Arduino 010 on a windows xp2 macbook.
I have tried various systems and computers so far, and none of them has given me good results so far.
The system I have had most success with so far is a black macbook running windows. On the macosx10.5 side of the macbook, The Arduino IDE just hangs very badly and I have to restart the computer using the powerknob...
So on the winxp side: I have managed to get the right synchro between hitting the upload and the reset button (2,316 seconds before you reset the arduino, you press the upload button in the IDE
So I uploaded the Blink example to my BT, and it worked. I uploaded it again and it worked again.
Then I uploaded a small program sending messages through the serial port, and ...
Now I cannot connect to the Arduino via Bluetooth anymore, and when I am for the Bluetooth key and enter 12345 I get a reply that windows could not connect to the device.
Another problem (which I also had on another windows laptop) is that the Arduino IDE takes AGES (about 3minutes) to start up. I have seen another thread with the same problem but no clear solution. Anyone ?
And the tools menu is also blocked.
I have changed to my other ArduinoBT in case the problem came from the Arduino I managed to program, but there is no change in the fact that the IDE takes ages to start and the tools menu also sort of stays stuck...
Sorry if this has been discussed before. I have looked at the forum and found other people with similar problem but no answer that I could apply to my case.
I am depressed.... help me
