arduino board not recognized

Recommended Posts

arduino board defectdevice managerscreenshot3screenshot2screenshot4

Hi everyone,

I just finished assembling my new Ultimaker 1, when I discoverd that it won't get recognized by my computer (Windows 7). Tried other machines as well, still got the same error code #43.

However, there is a green and an amber LED lighting up when the board is connected via USB.

Installing the arduino.inf driver also did not work.

Is it really a defective board or could something else be the cause? I already waited soooo long for the kit to be delivered....

Many thanks in advance for your tips!

Cheers,

Fran

Thanks for the quick reply.

I did this already, unfortunately though it still didn't work. Just found out that even on a computer of a friend of mine (who works with arduino boards and who's got the arduino software installed) this particular board doesn't get recognized.

Seems like I really have to get it replaced. And I just can't wait to finally start working with the machine... Does anyone know how long such a replacement might take?

Cheers,

Fran

Hi Simon,

I found the culprit eventually - the USB cable was defect!

Since the cable was transmitting power, the LED's on the board lit up and I suspected nothing. However the data transfer was broken, thus the board would not get recognized by any computer (I tried four different operating systems and two laptops...)

Lesson learned - always check the cable ;)

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

Fran

Thanks for this!

 

I just bought an Arduino Due and connected it to my pc but it wouldn't get recognized both by Ubuntu and Windows and then I read your comment about the cable. The cable I used was brand new so I thought it would be good, guess it wasn't.. So I tried another one and it worked. Thanks!

"Thank you for your query. To be honest, this ultimaker 1.5.7 is an upgrade version. The connectors are different with the original one. If you are not familar with ultimaker, I do not suggest you buy it. On the other hand, I would like to know some more details about your connection problem. Do you see any error message?"

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
