fubarino mini uploading or not.

Post by salzburg » Thu Nov 17, 2016 9:28 pm

I'm totally new to programming and need help.

Using MPIDE I did verify my sketch and no problem. [ Fubarino mini ]

Pressed the upload button and there seems to be no problem except "Done" never comes on. I waited about 1/2 hr.

and unplugged and only then did "Done" come on.

Now i don't know if the upload worked, how can one tell.

Thanks for any help you can give me, John.

Did you place the Mini into programming mode before pressing upload?

salzburg,

Check out the video on this page : http://fubarino.org/

While that was made with a Fubarino SD, it applies to the Mini as well. It will show you how to get into 'programming mode' with the Mini, which you must do before you try to download a new sketch to the board.

To make life easier you can solder a 100nF capacitor between RA8 (pin 16) and MCLR (on the programming header at the end of the board) so that a single press on the PROG button enters programming mode - no messing around with two buttons then.

But if you do that, you then lose the ability to use the PRG button as an input in any of your sketches (which we typically do when we're teaching chipKIT classes, for example)
