I have used different diodes, transistors, resistors and wires to exclude one of them being faulty. When I replace the DC motor with an LED it turns on based on the tutorial code. The DC motor works on the 5V and GND pins. The digital pin is missing the current part of the equation hence the usage of transistor and diode through the 5V. Yet I cannot get the motor to move.
Is there something I'm missing? Any ideas on what might be the problem for me?
When I obtain board info from the Arduino IDE I get the following:
BN: Unknown board
