Show us a Web link to the LED strip first.


Adafruit has several tutorials covering different types of LED strips.
No technical PMs.

Hi, yes, we need to know what type of rgb strip you mean. There are two types. In one type, all the rgb leds on the strip show the same colour. These need a 12V supply. In the second type, each led can show a different colour. These need a 5V supply.

Arduino is a microcontroller. When you upload a sketch to it, this can be called "burning".
