 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi guys,
 I got my Arduino BT paired with my computer, and verified the connection in python. But for some reason, the Arduino Sketch program only has one serial port listed in the menu, and it's not one I can at all easily connect the Bluetooth dongle to. I would think this would be easy to change, but there aren't any apparent ways to do so. Does anyone know how to add serial ports to the list Sketch has? Thanks!

All of the serial ports on your computer should appear in the IDE. The one that comes up will not be one you can 'change' your arduino to as it will be a hardware serial port on your computer. I'm afraid I don't know how to get your bluetooth one to come up as I run windoze but I hope that explanantion helps.
