Arduino programming problem!
« on: May 31, 2010, 05:59:06 AM »
Hi Guys

I cant seem to get my Romeo Arduino working. I seem to be able to get the boot loader loaded through AVR studio. But when i try to upload the graph sketch from the communication examples it says " failed to upload goto (the arduino help page)" and that is it.

I have tried uploading it a number of times but it still doesn't seem to work I cant work out what the problem is. I have replaced the power leads to the Arduino, tried a different USB cable and evem tried a different USB port.

Any suggestion on what to try/do next!

Thanks a lot

You may have already done this, but in case you haven't - Have have changed the fuse bytes?

If already have set the fuse bytes, check if you have set them correctly.

thanks pratheek

yeah i have checked the fuse settings, i have set them to the ones recommended to me by robot-x. and they have worked in the past.

Still looking through the system. Defiantly wanna get it working since madsci1016 posted that code for a PS2 interface.

Could it be the USB to UART chip, if so how can i test for it?

Take out the microcontroller from the Romeo board and plug it in the other Arduino (compatible) board you have. Try to program it there using the USB and not the programmer and see if it works. If it does, then the Romeo board is defective, ask for a replacement. If you are going to use the R-Dev-Ino board, you need a FTDI adapter or cable.

Here are instructions on how to make your own FTDI cable from a cheap $3 cell phone cable:

My 168 is a 32 pin one SMD style so it is soldered to the boards. Now i have experience i wish i had got a standard arduino and got a separate micro!

i'll email them and see what they say.

That is why i want to make my own 328 arduino boards.
