I have a small problem

what can I do?
anybody?

thanx

hi i do not know that problem , i uploaded the firmata that you can find here http://vvvv.org/tiki-index.php?page=arduino05

and worked well , make sure vvvv or other app is not using the same port of arduino while uploading ,cu

and use the latest software from the arduino website, older versions definetely have problems with the firmata stuff.

best way i figured is, open the programmer and drag’n’drop the pde file into an emtpy project - than do the upload. make sure port settings are correct.

Some common problems that occur are if your rs232 node is active you will have trouble uploading to it, also each time you want to upload new infor to the arduino you’ll need to press the reset button.
