I bought a  WAVGAT UNO R3 (CH340G) MEGA328P pour Arduino UNO R3  on Aliexpress

it has been recognised by windows 10 (as USB SERIAL CH340 COM3)

I tried to load the blink example

compiling  OK

uploading it takes 2 minutes and I get the message: "problem uploading to board"

I have the 1.8.5 software

I selected the board arduino/genuino uno. com3

any idea?

thank's a lot

From the little you included it is clear you have the correct drivers installed which is a good thing.

You left out a lot of vital info.

Have have you tried multiple USB cables that are DATA and POWER (they are not all the same) ?
AND
Have have you ruled out USB 3.0 issues by using USB 2.0 ?
AND
Have have you tried it on other computers to see if they can see it ?
AND
Which IDE are you using ?

There is also much more to the error message !
Turn on VERBOSE in the IDE and copy / paste it back here inside CODE TAGS ( </> ) please.


It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

I also had the same issue at first but I have found the solution...

Step 1
----
Download the following RAR file from the link below;
https://drive.google.com/open?id=10gwrG9uTDwaEO-7EudsmBkfgdcyrcABI

Step 2
---
Once downloaded, extract these and copy the content within the "update" folder (not the "update" folder itself just the content inside it)

Step 3
---
Paste content to the following path on your computer...
C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Arduino

Step 4
---
Restart Arduino IDE Software

Open Arduino IDE, select your COM port if required and Select your WAVGAT board type (WAVGAT boards are at the very bottom of the board list)

Enjoy!


Hope this helps

You are not alone, WAVGAT or WVACAT boards (depends which side of the screen print you are reading!) are not standard clones and the extra software just created new issues for me, see this thread:
https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=542030.0
Very cheap but best avoided.

@wireis

It uses the CH340 chinese drivers and getting them from a random google drive is a big NO for me.

The OFFICIAL source for those drivers is here.

Yes its a Chinese site but they are the official drivers !


@solarpeter

Clones have reached a level of build quality that is as good as the real thing and in terms of voltage tolerances for the input it has surpassed the real things. I have both real and clones and have not had any real issues with either apart from one of the really new UNO clones that has the micro connector which are prone to literally falling off the board.
They are usually a yellowish / brown colour so pretty easy to spot.

thank's wireis

I followed your advise, everything is fine, the blink example works, lol

I want to use my Arduino to built a watch winder, so, I can begin to work thank's to you

Download the following RAR file from the link below;
FWIW, the file has a boards.txt (and etc) that claims 16MHz core speed, and the LGT328 AVR-like processor chip.

I have the WAVGAT problem as well.

(1) I downloaded file from CH341 (the manufacturer) site, but could not follow the step
    Paste content to the following path on your computer...
     C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Arduino
(2)  I manually transferred the files to Arduino Library folder.  I was hesitant too, to fiddle with administrator function for a clone board.

(3) During my hit or miss attempts, I was successful, when I selected (Tools>Board>Arduino Dumilanove or Diecemila).

(4) The board uses two 12 mHz crystals.  When I run blink (without delay function), the cycle time is about eight seconds instead of twp seconds.

(5) Another problem is that the analogRead function behave abnormally.  The value spans 1500-1600(more than 1023, and values keep on changing even in steady state.

(I am new in the field, and will have to experiment/compare with my other Arduino boards)

Thank you wireis. The solution works for me.
But I had to create a separate arduino folder only for the Wavgat board, to avoid conflicts.

Hi,

same problem here, but with the above procedure was able to connect (not sure if there are hidden issues yet...).

Only minor annoyance (*) is that in Tools / Boards it shows both "Arduino AVR Boards" for Arduino and for WAVGAT.
Please, any idea on how and where to amend it?

Also, by the way, why are there two different folder (WAV and WAV8F) in hardware folder of update zip file?

Thanks and best regards,


Aingeru

(*) => after realising "Compatible Arduino UNO R3" in reality means "Not-100%-Compatible Arduino UNO R3", but in any case my fault for choosing cheap...

joemon

im new to arduino and coding.im facing the same problem with WAVGAT UNO R3 board.ive followed all the instructions and read all the post about WAVGAT UNO R3 boards but it seems that this board is having the worst problem.here is the warnings ive encounter and i cant solve it.

Warning: platform.txt from core 'Arduino AVR Boards' contains deprecated recipe.ar.pattern="{compiler.path}{compiler.ar.cmd}" {compiler.ar.flags} {compiler.ar.extra_flags} "{build.path}/{archive_file}" "{object_file}", automatically converted to recipe.ar.pattern="{compiler.path}{compiler.ar.cmd}" {compiler.ar.flags} {compiler.ar.extra_flags} "{archive_file_path}" "{object_file}". Consider upgrading this core.

any suggestions about this.im not as good in coding.thank you

westfw

Well, that part claims to just be a "warning", so things should proceed anyway...

joemon

you can see the ON light is on but the light on L no light at all it means that its not working.if you upload blink its blinking but other uploads no.
