Comments: LilyPad USB Plus Hookup Guide


Comments 5 comments

  • I'm currently trying to set up my LilyPad USB Plus. I have been able to select the device under the 'Board' menu, but I can't see the device on the 'Port' menu. I realise there is a warning in the guide about issues with the driver in older versions of Windows (I am using Windows 8); Is this the issue you mean, or have I missed a step/forgotten to install something? Thanks!

    • This version of LilyPad will not show on a port if the on board power switch is set to OFF. Try double checking that it is in the on position and see if that makes it visible.

      • The board power is switched on. In the device manager it comes up under 'Other devices' as 'LilyPad USB Plus'. I assume I can't see it under the 'Port' menu in the Arduino software as it is not recognized under the 'Port' menu in the device manager. Is there a way to make the device recognizable as a COM port rather than another device? Thanks!

          • In the device manager, it also says that the drivers aren't installed for this device. Do I need to download drivers for the device somewhere for it to be recognized via COM port?
          • We are actively working on the Windows 7 and 8 driver issues, but don't have a solution for you at the moment.
