General Discussion / Re: Windows 7 USB driver RobotZero board
« Last post by lennevia on February 18, 2020, 12:30:05 PM »
Hello,

Make sure you have the correct Tools selections under the Tools/ tab of the Arduino IDE: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Help/Upload_Arduino_Programs/#robotzero

The board power switch must also be toggled to ON.

If neither of those are the case, you can put the RobotZero into bootloader mode and then select the bootloader port and go from there. You may need to try it a few times before it works. Check the notes section for how to use bootloader mode: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Wirelings/RobotZero_Tutorial/#notes

Best of luck! Let me know how it goes.

I did see the driver this time and was able to start Arduino and see the board.

YES!!!

Unfortunately I am unable to upload to the board.

Does this information mean anything to anyone?

I followed those instructions and I did not see the PJRC driver in the list of available drivers.

I'll do a screen capture tomorrow and post it.

Hello,

In Step 2 of the RobotZero setup tutorial, there is a mention of the ftdi drivers you'll need to download for Windows 7: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Wirelings/RobotZero_Tutorial/#step-2-connect-to-robotzero

Where can I find the device driver for a Windows 7 machine using the new Wireling kickstarter robot car kit?

(I get no device driver when plugging in the processor board.)

Tiny Arcade / Re: Tiny arcade stuck in bootloader mode
« Last post by lennevia on February 10, 2020, 06:31:19 PM »
Hello,

You can try putting the Tiny Arcade into the bootloader mode, and then doing some on/off power cycling to see if it will snap out of the loop you seem to be experiencing. (To put in bootloader mode, turn the unit power switch off, then hold in the two right arcade buttons while turning the unit on - this is the case where it should actually show the "bootloader mode" screen)

You can also try re-uploading the program that runs on the Tiny Arcade here: https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Help/Tiny-Arcade-DIY-Kit_Menu-Update/

That should help get it out of the weird loop that was encountered. Let me know if it doesn't, or if you have any other problems!

Tiny Arcade / Tiny arcade stuck in bootloader mode
« Last post by Stinkyfeet on February 08, 2020, 05:12:17 PM »
My son has had this for a while now and loves it. We even downloaded all the games to SD. Unfortunately, now, after a few months of everything working fine, it is now not booting up and seems to be such on the black "bootloader mode". Can folks please advice on how to resolve the issue?

Tiny Arcade / Re: Issue with Micro SD card reading
« Last post by lennevia on February 06, 2020, 02:04:11 PM »
Hello,

If you have an error, it would be helpful to show us what it is so we can better help you.

The likely reason for the error as you try to add the Additional Boards Manager URL, found in the TinyScreen+ tutorial(https://learn.tinycircuits.com/Processors/TinyScreen+_Setup_Tutorial/#step-1-configure-arduino-software-ide): http://files.tinycircuits.com/ArduinoBoards/package_tinycircuits_index.json

is that you are missing a comma either before or after as you add it to the list. There is a picture in the tutorial with the link, and this may be helpful in placing the comma or being able to see if there are any large differences in this menu as you attempt to add the board URL.

I hope that helps, and let me know if it does not or if you have any more information on the error you are seeing!

Also, would still love to know where you found a dead email so that it can be corrected.

Thanks,

Réna

Tiny Arcade / Re: Issue with Micro SD card reading
« Last post by spetznatz1@gmail.com on February 05, 2020, 05:53:56 PM »
The only issue that I am having is that the URL that has to be added to Arduino IDE is incorrect. When I tried to include it in the version I have, (which I updated prior to doing this AND rebooted it), it tells me there is an error. I need to know what the correct URL is in order to add the "TinyCircuits" board in my Arduino software.
Please note, that I am VERY new to Arduino and I have completed a few projects with it, but I am still a beginner in my estimation.
