    no problem any questions just post them

    if you have had other kits then you would have had breadboards and Westinghouse cables which you can but cheaply on eBay the mods plug into the breadboards with those strip pins. http://www.ebay.com/itm/MB-102-830-Point-Prototype...this is an example of what I am talking about have fun and good luck

    check what com port the beetle shows up in in the setting portion of windows systems make sure it is also set up in Arduino as Leonardo just gussing here though

    I don't use win32 I use rufus it seems to work fine for me it does take a long while to write the image though. here is a link to rufushttps://rufus.akeo.ie/ I have used this for a long time for windows .

    what I would do is use the LLF first then try the other one the sd card.org does do that sometimes I suspect the SD cards they send out are either cheap fake knockoffs which has been in a lot of the comments I see on this page or they have some sort of defect which does give problems.

    if you download Jessie desktop link: http://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-lite/ you should get a zip file use WinRAR or 7zip to extract files go to directory you extracted to and you should see 3 files 1. ambbian.txt2. Armbian_5.14_Orangepilite_Debian_jessie_3.4.112_desktop.raw3.Armbian_5.14_Orangepilite_Debian_jessie_3.4.112_desktop.raw.ascfile #2 is the raw file not the one that ends in asc at this point follow guide if you need more help just ask good luck.

    I had the same problem and I downloades 2 hd format programs and need to run both on the sd cards a few times but eventaly it works the two programs are.1. http://hddguru.com/software/HDD-LLF-Low-Level-Form...2. https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/you will need to play with both of them but I have done it a few times with success.

    thank you so much I will correct the high low text and try unzipping that file much appreciated

    cam someone please help me to find an answer to my problem, on the mouse project I built it I went to the project reference downloaded the code and edited it as stated in reference but every time I went to compile I get an error that states 'Mouse" not found. Does your Sketch include the line #include <mouse.h>"? which I see it does I don't have a lot of programing experience so I am lost I tried for two days to find an answer on the internet with no luck. thanks// Watch video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o09-9n5WrxE//Connection pins provided in the diagram at the beginning of video// library provided and code based on: https://github.com/Seeed-Studio/IMU_10DOF#include "Wire.h"#include "I2Cdev.h"#include "MPU9250.h"#include <Mous...see more »cam someone please help me to find an answer to my problem, on the mouse project I built it I went to the project reference downloaded the code and edited it as stated in reference but every time I went to compile I get an error that states 'Mouse" not found.
