IDE dock?

Anyone have ideas on how to make a hard drive swapping dock for IDE drives? The only ones I've been able to find are all for SATA, except a Sharkoon SATA with an IDE port, and that seems to be available only in the UK.

Pcduino arduino IDE? Answered

I just got my PcDuino from the arduino contest, and I can't get any IO to work, using the arduino coding.  I tried following any tutorials that exist, but there are few, and don't account for the problems I had.  1) example files would not execute, even when recompiled, launched from LXTerminal, etc.  arduino IDE would not unzip.  When I used my regular pc to unzip it and put it on the pcduino with a flash drive (I copied the files to the pcduino, and even set it as executable), but the arduino shell script refuses to run.  Apparently the new distro of ubuntu has arduino IDE built in, is there a way to update without using another computer? If anyone's had sucess just blinking an LED, did you have any similar problems, and if so, how did you get it to work? (I am NOT a linux guy, this is my second linux device after a raspberry pi, which I also got in many a shouting match with).

Does Arduino IDE1.0 save compiled hex files after it loaded the sketch? Where to?

I'd love to have the hex file that the compiler creates so I can load it later with avrdude. No further editing will be done, so I don't really need the IDE - can do it from command string. I've looked and looked and can't find the hex files. How come? Does IDE delete them after they're uploaded? Thanks!

ESP8266-01 DTH22 5 minute Delay?

Hi, I want to add a DHT22 sensor node to my Openhab setup. A simple way to do this is by using a ESP8266-01; I have a few around. I use the Arduino 1.6.5 IDE since that is what I have. I am having problems with the timing of the loop: I do not need readings every minute or so, 5-10 minutes is more then enough; I do not need that much data. I also want to run the node on batteries in the future so less transmissions is what I want. However, when I use a delay of more then approx. 24000 mils the ESP stops working, lower values are no problem.  I have tried several approaches, none work. Can anyone help me out? The sketch I use is below, you can see what I tried in the comments: #include #include #include const char* ssid = "Yggdrasil"; const char* password = "XXXXXXXXX"; char* topic_t = "openhab/esp8266-1/temp"; char* topic_h = "openhab/esp8266-1/vocht"; char* server = "192.168.X.X"; String clientName = "esp8266-1"; //time peter, idea taken from https://www.safaribooksonline.com/library/view/arduino-cookbook-2nd/9781449321185/ch12.html const long oneSecond = 1000;  // a second is a thousand milliseconds const long oneMinute = oneSecond * 60; const long fiveMinutes = oneMinute * 5; //time peter #define DHTPIN 2 // what pin we're connected to #define DHTTYPE DHT22 // DHT 11 DHT dht(DHTPIN, DHTTYPE,15); WiFiClient wifiClient; PubSubClient client(server, 1883, callback, wifiClient); void callback(char* topic, byte* payload, unsigned int length) { // handle message arrived } void setup() { Serial.begin(115200); delay(10); dht.begin(); Serial.println(); Serial.println(); Serial.print("Connecting to "); Serial.println(ssid); WiFi.begin(ssid, password); while (WiFi.status() != WL_CONNECTED) { delay(500); Serial.print("."); } Serial.println(""); Serial.println("WiFi connected"); Serial.println("IP address: "); Serial.println(WiFi.localIP()); Serial.print("Connecting to "); Serial.print(server); Serial.print(" as "); Serial.println(clientName); if (client.connect((char*) clientName.c_str())) { Serial.println("Connected to MQTT broker"); Serial.print("Topic is: "); Serial.println(topic_t); Serial.println(topic_h); } else { Serial.println("MQTT connect failed"); Serial.println("Will reset and try again..."); abort(); } } void loop() { float h = dht.readHumidity(); float t = dht.readTemperature(); if (isnan(h) || isnan(t)) { Serial.println("Failed to read from DHT sensor!"); return; } static int counter = 0; String payload ; payload += t; //payload += ":"; //payload += h; String payloadh ; payloadh += h; if (client.connected()){ Serial.print("Sending payload: "); Serial.println(payload); if (client.publish(topic_t, (char*) payload.c_str())) { Serial.println("Publish ok"); } else { Serial.println("Publish failed"); } //peter if (client.connected()){ Serial.print("Sending payload: "); Serial.println(payloadh); if (client.publish(topic_h, (char*) payloadh.c_str())) { Serial.println("Publish ok"); } else { Serial.println("Publish failed"); }} //peter } else { if (client.connect((char*) clientName.c_str())) { Serial.println("Connected to MQTT broker"); Serial.print("Topic is: "); Serial.println(topic_t); Serial.println(topic_h); } } // delay (20000); //WORKS FINE // delay(5*60*1000); //STOPS AFTER FIRST READING AT STARTUP delay(fiveMinutes); // STOPS AFTER FIRST READING AT STARTUP }

FT232RL+breadboard arduino programming problems

I am trying to program a breadboard arduino with an ft232rl programming adaptor that I found online. I made the 'duino using a atmega 328 preloaded with arduino uno optiboot from sparkfun. I attached 5volts power, 16mhz crystal, reset button, and an led to pin 13. When power is supplied, the led pulses then stopps suggesting that the bootloader is working correctly. I then connected a ft232rl to the arduino with rx to tx and tx to rx as well as the DTS pin to a 0.1 UF cap and to reset. Then i connected it to my computer via usb and installed the VCP drivers. It shows up as a com port in the IDE and I selected the board as an uno and tried to flash the blink sketch. The lights on the breakout blink, but i keep getting the avrdude not in sync message. I have tried switching cables, usb ports, pressing the reset button while programming, i have gotten rig of the 0.1 uf cap and jumped directly to DTS, i have tried both sets of drivers and have restarted the board, my computer, and the IDE as well as feeding a separate 5 volt source to the chip. How can I fix this? I am using windows vista SP1 with ide version 1.0.1 and a cheap programmer from ebay.

ID/Creationism trolling an academic requirement?

This could explain a lot. (From RichardDawkins.net via Slashdot )Apparently, the course on "Intelligent Design and Christian Apologetics" at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary has, as a requirement worth 20% of the final grade, "(4) provide at least 10 posts defending ID that you've made on "hostile" websites, the posts totalling 3,000 words, along with the URLs (i.e., web links) to each post (worth 20% of your grade)."The next time I see a lengthy, ad-hominem-laden, scientifically dubious argument for Intelligent Design on this site I'm going to wonder whether it is a college student fulfilling course requirements by trolling. I notice that reading the replies to your 3,000 words of propaganda isn't required. Now we just have to find whoever it is offering photocopies of Tesla's secret notebooks and plans for perpetual motion machines if you post enough stuff supporting overunity HHO generators.Note to those so inclined: this is not flamebait, I'm reporting a piece of news relevant to this community (because of our semi-regular flamewars debates about ID etc.). Flames will be reported as spam and subsequently ignored. Intelligent Discussion will be welcomed.

Powering up an old IDE hard drive externally?

How can I make an old 2.5" laptop IDE hard drive spin up with out a computer? I tried connecting 5v to pin 42 (+5 VDC (Motor)) and 0v to pin 43 (ground) but the drive does not spin up, it just draws around 270mA from the supply. How can I get the drive to power on? do I need to short out some other pins too? What about the jumpers? I am guessing it needs some sort of "power on" signal but I am unsure how to give it this. I am NOT connecting this to a computer BTW, I do not need to read any data. Just for the motor to spin up to have some "fun" with. Thanks.

I need a simple, easy to use C++ IDE for Fedora 11. Any suggestions? Answered

              I want to program in Fedora 11, but it only comes with Anjuta IDE, and it is really stupid and hard to use, in my opinion.  I want something simple, like the Python IDE or Dev-C++ IDE, that lets me write, compile, and run C++ code, without having to deal with all of the templates, projects, and crap.  I would like to use Dev-C++, but it is not available for Fedora.  I want to be able to write code for interfacing with the serial ports and parallel port, primarily.  Suggestions on what to use for this would be appreciated.  Thanks!

30GB 1.8&quot; IDE, 160GB 2.5&quot; SATA and a 3.5&quot; 180GB HDD and I want to power them all from the SAME power supply, how? Answered

I am not looking for how to build the enclosure because that part isn't electrical (an area of expertise where I'm lacking), just how do I power them all because I am fairly certain that the USB port is not strong enough on it's own. Thanks all!

Motherboard IDE to USB Device Adapter, Parallel to USB Device, or Serial to USB Device, Adapter Needed for Old Computer.

Hello, I have a Compaq Presario 220C. I know it is very old, but it has great sound, runs windows 95 great, and most importantly it has high sentimental value. The only thing holding me up from making use of it, is that It does not have an ethernet or USB port. It has the following ports available on the motherboard: ISA 8-Bit (Which has low clearance room to fit a card in and not clearance to the right or left either) Parallel Port Game Port IDE Floppy IDE Serial Port I am desperate and very determined to somehow be able to connect a USB Drive or an ethernet port on this computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much, HandyAndy

are there any other chips than the Atmega168 and 328 that i can program with the Arduino IDE?

Are there any other chips than the Atmega168 and 328 that i can program with the Arduino IDE?? or maybe another program i can use? i really like the "basic-like" coding, but the 168 and 328 are simply overkill for some of my projects. plus, i can't buy them anywhere nearby. what i'm looking for is probably a program/programmer that i can use instead of the arduino, with basic-like coding. also, it would be awesome not to waste space on the arduino bootloader.
