  • can this run in 8bit mode? I’m trying so hard to just wire up the 8 data lines and manually send the bits required for certain symbols. But it’s either stuck in 4bit mode, or I’m completely lost. My program is simple and I KNOW that it is sending the 1’s and 0’s down the appropriate lines but I can’t get a response at all. And I can succesfully apply the example code for liquid crystal. In class we just banged some bits into those old lcd’s and got the expected response… Is this one more advanced or something? Thanks, I really appreciate any help.

  • I followed the instructions on this page perfectly over dozen times. not working, first tried on mac, then on windows, tried every driver, but that’s not the problem. when I plug in the board it doesn’t recognise. I can’t install driver if it doesn’t even rec. somethings plugged in.

No public wish lists :(
