So, I've been using arduino for a long long time. And it worked fine. Suddenly today I was uploading code like normal to debug one of my apps. I uploaded, and it gave a timeour error. I tried multiple times, reinstalled, etc etc everything you'd normally do, and it refused to work.
What happens is pretty weird : It compiles. It starts uploading (RX/TX flicker) And somewhere in between RX/TX stops glowing completely, and After a second, I get an error on Arduino stating timeout error.
I tried with Arduino 1.0.4, 1.5.4. I tried it with another laptop, it worked fine. I thought maybe it was a coding error on my part somehow, but even BareMinimum or Blinky won't work.
My laptop recognizes it fine, and it starts uploading, but always gies timeout in between. "dmesg" in terminal shows it is detected, it appears in Tools > SerialPort also, I've chosen the correct board (Mega 2560). Suddenly it 's giving an error, I didnt even install anything new.
Could someone please help em out quickly ? I'm at a standstill cuz of it.
