I'm having the following problem.
The computer does not always assigns the same USB Port to Arduino and then Processing does not communicate sometimes. I have to restart the computer for it to reassing the Port to Arduino. It happends specifically when I close my laptop at the end of the day and unplug everything. When I comeback next day and plug it in again the USB Port assigned to Arduino is not right and I have to restart the computer.
My question is this:
Can I assing a permanent Port to Arduino, so I won't have this problem?
I'm using a USB extender hub as my laptop only have 2 USB Ports. With it I connect printers, etc. It is also annoying with the printers as they are not always assigned the same USB an I have copies of each of them depending the Port they are assigned. I send a document to be printed and it does not print until I select another printer copy and next day when I plug in everythig, the documents that were not printed are all printed now when I don't need them. I have to be guessing all the time which Port was assigned to everything.
By the way, I also connect my HTC EVO phone to another USB Port. Everytime I unplug or plug the phone, Arduino (on another Port) gets ressetted. Allways happens even without Arduino IDE or Processing running. Kind of weird for me...
Any help appreciated.
