Do not bother tearing the top of the plastic white board you have. It is a solderless breadboard. It has metal spring clips inside to grip any pins you poke through the holes. It does not have any PCB inside.such as trying to tear off that top of the white board
Have you fully installed the AXE027 USB Drivers ?I spent a bit more time, but without progress. e.g. don't see COM ports other than COM1,
where I did before. e.g. the USB port that the cable plugs into.
No, we are both separate individuals.Thanks again "Technical" - or is that "Hippy" from years ago ? ;-)
Have you tried programming boards (2), (3) and (4) on the "Study PC" ?I have managed to use the Picaxe Editor to load the latest version "Romeo" of my Snoopy Autopilot Software into the old "Reference System" Picaxe 28X2 board (1). This was done by using my "Study" PC on which it had been done before ( along with other PC ), many years ago.
BUT, the other 3 new boards (2),(3),(4) all give error messages as have been reported before. e.g. COM port.
BUT, if I don't get suitable help to find and fix remaining faults ( if there are any ) in boards (2),(3),(4) there seems little chance of these, and my huge stock of components, being kept
I have to agree with hippy. It looks as though your AXE027 driver hasn’t been fully installed. To finish installing the driver, simply follow these installation instructions. It looks like you need to continue from step 6 on page 2...Hi Guys. I attach screen shot picaxee2.gif which shows a picaxe28x2 on a com port - but not quite right ?
The 28X2 module has two 0V connections but you are only using the one on leg 27. It's possible that this was okay for the older module but might not be suitable for the newer module. Try connecting leg 4 to 0V and then test the download on the "Study PC" as you know this downloaded okay to your reference board (1).I'll repeat my earlier:
IMPORTANT - is it possible my problems may be due to my old reference board (1) that works,
having an older Picaxe28X2 module dating from what must be at least 2017 if not earlier ?
