Product DEV-10889 |
about a year ago
Just found this. http://www.sparkfun.com/tutorials/303
Would have saved me a lot of trouble. My bad.
Probably ought to put the info from the RETIRED DEV-10817 on this 10889 page.
Also, telling the software under Tools/Board that a Pro-Mini(whether 3.3 or 5V) is on the end of the cable won’t work. It’s not just UNO-“compatible”, you must say that it IS an UNO, and NOT “PRO”, “MINI”, “PROTO”, or any other thing that is intuitive to a person who bought a ProtoSnap-Pro Mini :P
This fuax-pas caused me to question my hardware on my laptop and/or driver installation, port settings, etc, til the cows came home. I went from a Win7 laptop, to an XP laptop, to an XP desktop machine. Pissed away a week. Then, for the heck of it, I told it that it was simply an UNO, and everything’s right as rain now.
“Compatible with Uno”, and “you MUST tell the software it IS an UNO”, are two different things.
ALL of these guys are SOME kind of UNO, LOL.
All that said, I do like the product!
No public wish lists :(
