At first I must tell you that am on Windows 8 x64.I have an Arduino Duemilanove which playes nice as I checked it with the "Blink" example.
I do the wiring as in the diagram but after I load LED project (On Arduino IDE) only the 1st led lights up!I did also both projects "Adalight" and "Colorswirl"
on Processing IDE (32bit).Both projects run but only the 1st led flashes!
Moreover whenever I load sth on Arduino, when it shows Done Uploading and then after the binary size:
"avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x2e"
Moreover when I only put the lights in the mains with the supplied [5V 2A (2000mA) switching power supply - UL Listed]
again only the 1st one turns on!
Moreover the strand wires are: blue-green-yellow-red,I don't know if it is of any importance but in a thread I read of mixed wiring of the strand
that's why I mention it.
So I think that probably the strand has a problem.
Please aid me to to find a solution otherwise I think that the adafruit support should send me a replacement.
Thanks for your time!
