With regards to the FTDI Module, I used this as it has a USB A port to plug a USB Stick into whereas the Arduino only has the USB B port.
Do you happen to know of any code that may help me write this data to the USB stick, as I can't seem to get the USB to hold any data at all at the moment!
Am still working on saving the data to a memory stick plugged into the FTDI module.
would I also need to use a MAX232 chip when communicating between the Arduino and FTDI aswell?
I am sending commands to the DMM and receiving results back in the Serial monitor, I just want to save these results exactly as they appear in the serial monitor onto a USB/memory stick as a txt file or ideally an Excel document.
If you want to be able to do this with the Mega then it will be MUCH easier to use an SD card instead of a memory stick. The SD card can be handled directly by the Mega.
