Hi,

I've been using this stepper successfully:
https://www.adafruit.com/product/324
But it's too weak for my new application.

I've "upgraded" to this stepper:
https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13656
But I'm a bit of a noob and can't get it running.

I'm using this driver:
https://www.adafruit.com/product/2448

I'm not sure if it's the baud rate I've got wrong (I've tried 19200 and 9600)
Or maybe the wiring (I don't know which wire goes where on the driver)
Or possibly the code (though at this point I've only swapped the motor and changed the baud rate. I haven't changed the code at all.
I'm currently powering the motor through the Arduino, and the Arduino from the laptop. I thought that might also be the problem?

Does anyone have any insights?

Thanks!
Tori
