Hi, I can't get the Arduino to work. (Like everybody else)
I currently got: Windows 7 (7100RC, 64x) FTDI drivers for Windows Vista 64x Arduino Mega TouchShield Slide
I first downloaded the arduino 0016 and 0012. Then when I connected the Arduino the LED13 started to blink. I tried to upload the blinking example, but there was an error for some reason. So I tried to manually reset the Arduino, but it didnt work. The LED13 was still blinking. Suddenly after a while with frustration I tried to reset. It blinked ones, the RX and TX blinked ones.
Then I tried to upload the code again. The TX was blinking so I thought it was working. After 5 minutes I thought otherwise and the computer had frozen. I looked around on the forum and tried to run the run.bat file. I uploaded again (and again and again). The TX still blinked and the software froze (not the computer). And when I exited the TX was still blinking.
I looked around some more, and found many with simular problems, just not the same. So I tried to update the FTDI, but didn't find anyone for Windows 7. So I tried Vista 64x. And still no result. So I don't know what to do.
Also. I don't know how to program the TouchShield. On 0012 I could choose TouchShield Slide as a board (obviously not working), but I can't on 0016. So what do I do with that?
Hope somebody can help!
