Motor Controller problems

Hey community!!!! I am new at this arduino thing and I have run into a motor controller problem. Whenever I connect my motors to my controller, nothing happens. I am sure I have written the right code. I wish I could include the code I have written but right now I can't. I am using the correct I/O pins too. I am wondering if it could be an issue with the way I am hooking up my motors? I am using the Arduino Uno and the arduino provided motor controller. Any help would be great!!! Thanks!!!!

More than likely you are making the usual mistake of trying to power motors from the arduino.

Would this be fixable through hardware or software?

Let's draw straws over that.
