Brand new user here and running into problems with Nano Every

Good evening all,

I have just bought 3 x nano every boards and am trying to get them to upload the blink example just to prove they work.

So for information I am running windows 10 and connecting the board to my PC via a USB port and that is also providing power. I have also downloaded the IDE program as directed from the windows store.

I have followed the "Getting Started" guide on the nano every page and all was going well, so far I have this selected:
Board: Arduino Nano Every
Registers Emulation: ATMEGA328
Port: COM5 (Arduino Nano Every)

I load up the default blink example and verify that and it comes up with the message done compiling, when I try to upload it I get the following output:

avrdude done.  Thank you.

When the upload is happening I can see the blinking yellow LED (The L LED) flashing faster similar to a HDD light when there is activity. However when I reset or unplug then plug it back in the L LED flashes slowly (like it's ready to have something uploaded).

I have tried this on 3 separate Nano Every boards and I get the same result each time and I'm just a little confused as to whats going on really.

Any help is much appreciated.

You have posted the output of a successful upload. So everything is fine and you can go back to having fun with Arduino. Enjoy!

That's my problem it looks like it works but I cannot get the LED to flash even when pressing the "RST" button or unplugging the USB and plugging it back in again.

Little confused really.

What do you mean by "slowly"? The standard File > Examples > 01.Basics > Blink sketch blinks the LED at 0.5 Hz, which I would classify as "slowly", so it sounds to me like you are getting the expected results.

I’ve just gone through and changed it to 10 seconds on 10 seconds off and that now works…I was thinking it was using a different LED I thought it was meant to use the one in the middle of the board (TX or RX). I’ve uploaded the code from my mac and that works fine, I will try again from my windows machine tomorrow to see if that also has the same effect.
Seems like I was a bit daft. Thanks for confirming.

OK, I'm glad to hear that things are working as expected now. I'll hope for the same on the Windows machine!
