See reply #16. Crazy import laws, maybe?
Maybe it didn't have the "don't cut the wire with scissors" warning, which we all need to be reminded about from time to time:
I bought this board to try out if this is something for me. But I can't seem to connect the board to my PC. Nothing happens in Windows when I connect it. The board lights "On" and the "L"-led blinks when I connect it, but nothing happens on the computer, there is nothing to see in the device manager. I have tried to install the CH340G driver, but as the board is not at all seen by the computer, this does no difference.Is it a faulty board? I know I can't expect much for 3£, but I wanted to try it out. Is there something i missed, or is it simply a bad copy?
Have you downloaded the Arduino IDE software?
I have the same problem mentioned above, installed the CH341 driver, Arduino IDE, rebooted the computer and hooked up the Arduino to the USB. It isn't listed in the Device Manager after repeating the install a few times. I'm looking to build my own electronic bike shifting setup, it's a shame this is holding me back!
