I attempt to complete this tutorial: Digital Read Serial
It is a basic tutorial from the arduino uno.
Here is the link
Here is my issue:
When I boot my uno, it spills out a ton of ints in the serial monitor with values between about 200 - 550
This is weird as the rotary encoder is not being used yet.
When I rotate it it triggers a windows sound like if I plugged in a usb but with nothing else.
This stops the program right away with a final int in the log by example 44.
Finally to work again on the arduino I must disconnect it from the pc then reconnect it because even if it is displayed in my "Device Manager" I fail to upload the code.
Thanks for your help, I am really troubled by this.
