New in Arduino and programming in general, but very enthusiast! :)
I purchased a plain M0 board in a try to learn more things on programming. I have some difficulties on starting up so i'd like your help.
I downloaded the last version 1.8.1 before two days. I use windows 7 as an OS. The steps that i have followed until now are below¨
I connected board's native usb port to an available usb port (com3) of my computer. A green light is steady on, and right next to it an orange led is blinking.
From control panel i located the M0 board under ports, and manually loaded its driver from arduino's program driver folder.
I open the program (1.8.1) and after installing SAM's related boards (board manager), i picked up the M0 board.
I also choose the COM3 option under the same TOOLS tab.
I opened the classic "blink" sketch and upload it to the board. After uploading finishes, a message appears that uploading completed with success. But nothing happens on the board. It is like nothing was uploaded.
Today i read about the lack of internal programmer on the board and that a bootloader has to be burned on it through an other programmer??!!
Is it possible for someone please to guide me with a step by step instructions on what to do? I really can not wait to upload my first sketch!
Thanks in advance! Jeg
