The FTDI USB Drivers are installed with Arduino IDE package, but have at least in my case to be installed manually by browsing for the "arduino.inf" for the two devices under windows.
- Click on the Start Menu, and open up the Control Panel.
- While in the Control Panel, navigate to System and Security. Next, click on System. Once the System window is up, open the Device Manager.
- Look under Ports (COM & LPT). You should see an open port named "Arduino UNO (COMxx)". If there is no COM & LPT section, look under "Other Devices" for "Unknown Device".
- Right click on the "Arduino UNO (COmxx)" port and choose the "Update Driver Software" option.
- Next, choose the "Browse my computer for Driver software" option.
- Finally, navigate to and select the driver file named "arduino.inf", located in the "Drivers" folder of the Arduino Software download (not the "FTDI USB Drivers" sub-directory). If you are using an old version of the IDE (1.0.3 or older), choose the Uno driver file named "Arduino UNO.inf"
- Windows will finish up the driver installation from there.
Installing the Arduino drivers under Windows XP, Win 7
The bluetooth link works after re-installing the drivers in WIndows 7. However the USB uploader does not work properly yet. I can connect Win7 to Arduino Uno, but in case of USB uploader the port is not visible in Arduino IDE. CH340SER is installed. Herewith a new video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdXOwde1uOY
According to instructions CH340SER is required only for USB adapter, right ?
Hereafter a link showing the trouble I face after bluetooth link, upload of testBuzzer. Message that IDE configuration has something wrong and no command is accepted from serial monitor.
If connected through the USB adapter there is no display of port found. What can be the reason ? Arduino Uno can be found. May is the CH340 driver not correctly installed ? On the other forum post I sent you the details and the message I receive is that driver is correctly installed
You need to connect the bluetooth dongle within the PC setting, like connecting a bluetooth mouse. Then you can find the serial port in Arduino IDE->Tools->Ports.
It works for setting up Arduino uno driver, but Bittle cannot be seen yet
Thanks! just pinned your post to the top.
