Hello,
where can I find Arduino Mega 1280 first tutorial? Using Win7 and can't found tutorial for Mega 1280, I'm trying connect it to PC first time. Then I connecting it to pc, PWR LED is red and anoter led is blinking red. Computer recognise it like Other Devices > FT232R USB UART in device manager.

• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!

If it has the FTDI chip, just use the same tutorial as for the Diecimila/Duemilanove for installing the drivers.

Later-on don't forget to choose the correct board in the tools menu: "Arduino Mega (ATmega 1280)" !
