For my first development board, I got a Sparkfun Blackboard C and a light detector and linked them together with a Qwiik connector.
I then installed the Arduino IDE and connected my Blackboard C to my laptop with the USB C cable that I use for my phone. I use Windows 10.
On their website, Sparkfun specifies that the board is compatible with the Arduino/Genuino Uno. At first, I didn’t find this board so I selected Arduino Uno and tried to upload a sketch in python.
At first, the code seemed to work, LEDs started to blink on the detector PCB but I got an error message in the Arduino IDE. I then tried to upload an empty sketch to erase the previous upload without success:
Reading | avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
I saved the complete error message that appears while uploading the code if you guys want to see it.
I later found that I had to roll back to an earlier version of Arduino VR boards to be able to select Arduino/Genuino Uno as the board I am currently using.
Should I be trying to burn a fresh bootloader?
Thanks in advance,
