Trouble Programming Arduino

Postby marckarasek » Sat Feb 24, 2018 3:58 pm

I found another post that tells what to set the environment to:

Set the board type to “Arduino Pro or Pro Mini” and the processor type to “ATMega328p 3.3v 8mhz”


NOTE: Kevin the Docs (PDF) should be changed to add this. it currently says the board is UNO.

I have used the Arduino Programmer before (Neopixel googles from Adafruit).

I installed the FTDI driver and it shows up as COM3 when I plug the Rover in.

I loaded the PiControl BaseSketch and am able to compile it. Whne I go to upload I get the error below.
Should I choose a different board? the docs says the Rover is a Uno.

When I look at the Board Info I get:
BN: Unknown board
VID: 0403
PID: 6015
SN: Upload any sketch to obtain it


Arduino: 1.8.5 (Windows Store 1.8.10.0) (Windows 10), Board: "Arduino/Genuino Uno"

Sketch uses 6826 bytes (21%) of program storage space. Maximum is 32256 bytes.
Global variables use 642 bytes (31%) of dynamic memory, leaving 1406 bytes for local variables. Maximum is 2048 bytes.

Problem uploading to board. See http://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting#upload for suggestions.

This report would have more information with
"Show verbose output during compilation"
option enabled in File -> Preferences.

it's a bootloader problem sometimes occurring on non-genuine avrdude processors ;-( You'll find a lot of posts on it at this formum. I was lucky to find a way out, decribed here: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=8031&start=10#p9800

Kevin has posted the PDF getting started guide. Does anyone know what the original source for this doc is?

I would be happy to edit it and update it with info like this.. and then check it in to one of the three repos i have created for the code :
