(i am newbie, just started - i have no experience of electronic)
Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit
I just bought my new Arduino board (Duemilanove) and some LEDs.
The first thing i did, was to follow this guide: http://arduino.cc/en/Guide/Windows
. I was so stupid, i plugged in the usb for the arduino before i installed anything or followed the guide. The 'Found New Hardware' came up, but i just closed it. And now, when i come to number "4 | connect the board" in the guide - i plug in the USB to the computer, but then the 'Found New Hardware' wont popup? - What should i do? - help!
Second, i just skipped number 4 and did everything else as the guide told me to. When i want to open the Arduino software, it wont open. There just pop up a windows application named 'Microsoft Windows' says: "arduino.exe stopped working" and some other text - you probably know it, I GOT WINDOWS VISTA HOME PERIMIUM 32bit.
But when i open the other file "run.bat" the program starts.
I select the serial port "COM3" (i have a USB Arduino Board).
Then when i wanna upload the code i just wrote, i click:
- The play button (Verify) - it says: Binary sketch size: 1124 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
- And then last i click 'Upload to I/O Board' - but then it comes up with this error after a few secounds:
PROBLEM UPLOADING TO BOARD. See (link to troubleshooting) (i followed the troubleshooting, but it still not works)
Binary sketch size: 1124 bytes (of a 14336 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x30
avrdude: stk500_disable(): protocol error, expect=0x14, resp=0x5
Btw. the TX or RX doesn't light when i try to upload. And when i put in a LED to the GND and pin 13, it just blinks in same order as the L ( the L ligh is over the TX light - look at the picture i in the top).
I hope some of you can help me
When i open the Device Manager, and select Ports (COM & LPT) theres no USB Serial Port (COM5), only a:
"Standard seriel connection via Bluetooth (COM4)" - why?
Bye everybody - have a nice day
