Not sure if I'm missing something here. I'm shorting the pins as marked in the intructions on the Arduino site to try and put the Uno R3 into DFU mode. All the short succeeds in doing is restarting/reseting the board and it continues to show up as Arduino Uno under Devices in the Control Panel.
Also, when I try to open a USB connection to it using Flip, it comes back with "Could not open USB device".
What I've found seems to tell me that my unit is not in DFU mode. If that is indeed the case, are there any alternate ways of activating since shorting the pins did not work...
If that's not the case, would someone be able to shed some light on any steps I might have missed?
Thanks in advance.
