Topic: Leonardo __ Always getting Found_New_Hardware_Wizard (Read 748 times) previous topic - next topic


Hello world,

  I have an Arduino Leonardo (made by SainSmart).  Every time that I power-on the PC and plug the Leo into the USB, it runs the Found_New_Hardware_Wizard.  After doing this involved process, it creates a virtual serial port with a higher number than the previous time that I plugged in the Leonardo.
  How can I fix this so that it retains the Arduino hardware configuration?
  On the PC's USB,  I have a SATA/IDE-to-USB interface, a 2 TeraByte hard drive, EPSON scanner (PerfectionV33), Samsung Laser printer, MIDI interface, a USBasp AVR programmer, and standard HID mouse and keyboard.  I know that in theory USB can handle 127 devices, but is this too much load?
    I'm running XP with SP2 ver 5.1.2600 on a Dell OptiPlex SX280.  The CPU is a Pentium 4 at 3 gHz with 1 Gig RAM.  The PC has one legacy serial port:COM1 (that always shows up) and parallel/printer port (with DB25).
  After loading the driver, I try to upload a compiled sketch and get the Arduino error saying "Serial port is already in use. Try closing the other program."  But there are no other programs running.
    How do I fix this?

  If I unplug the Leo USB cable and plug it back, it goes to a next higher serial port number.  Attempting to upload gives this mess of text:
         Binary sketch size: 5,526 bytes (of a 28,672 byte maximum)
    Found programmer: Id = "BoĊ¸"; type = {square char}
    Software Version ={square char}.{square char}  Hardware Version = {square char}.{square char}
    avrdude: error: buffered memory access not supported. Maybe it isn't a butterfly/AVR109 but a AVR910 device?

  I do AVR development in Assembler.  My code is uploaded as hex files to non-Arduino AVR CPUs using AVRdude and a USBasp interface.  Does this interfere with Arduino environment?  How do I fix this?
  In the Arduino screen, under Tools: Programmer,  USBasp is selected.  Did the Arduino install program make this selection because it found a USBasp driver on the PC?  Should I change this selection?
  Thank you,
