How so ?
You connected the battery red wire to one of the strips on the breadboard. But there are no other wires connecting that strip to anything.
If pin8 was connected to the Arduino +, it would draw power from the Arduino?
Hi,Look at the schematic, pin1 is the Enable pin for the other half, look at the revised fritzy, pin 1 is not connected to anything.Pin8 is for the motor positive supply.Pin 16 is for the 5V to power the logic circuit in the 75441.I think you are counting the pins the wrong way, not your fault, the fritzy doesn't tell you which is pin1.If you look at any IC with the writing the correct way around to read, then pin1 is bottom left.Tom....
