- FIRST: Using MiniPOV3 PID:20 from Adafruit
SECOND: W7 - homebrew PC
THIRD: Using PL2303 USB/Serial adapter PID:18 from Adafruit
FOURTH: MiniPOV3 does light up when powered. LEDs cascade as expected
FIFTH: Unable to properly install PL2303 adapter - using drivers from Adafruit PID:18 webpage link to prolific.com.tw - added the AVRDUDE USB/Serial change files as well
SIXTH: screencap is uploaded as attachement with DOS box, Device Manager, and Properties for USB/Serial entry
SEVENTH: Will get this done tomorrow (pic of MiniPOV3 front/back)
- 1 - Using Adafruit's kit and suggested USB cable.
2 - Overlayed the modified AVRDUDE files for USB/Serial.
3 - I have edited MAKEFILE to use com4 (which Device Manager shows) and it times out very quickly (2-3 seconds) with "avrdude: ser_open<>: can't open device "com4": The system cannot find the file specified"
4 - com1 seems to try to communicate (15 seconds+) but comes up with the rc=-1 error each time
5 - Confirmed delay=2000 is present
6 - Also - my computer does not have a physical serial port - COM1 only shows up while the USB/Serial cable is attempting to initialize
Thanks in advance for any help. The build was sweet and smooth. This cable is, however, ugh.
