Hi- I'm new to Arduino and I'm working on one of the examples in Banzi's Getting Started with Arduino book and I got the following error message:
Binary sketch size: 1640 bytes (of a 32256 byte maximum) avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
Shortly after this, my Mac displayed an error message that the Arduino that was plugged in the USB port was draining too much power. I find this hard to believe since it's only 5 volts.
In doing some research, it appears that some Mac users are having similar sorts of problems but I haven't had any luck in getting fixes. I have OS X 10.6.8 Any ideas? Thanks
