I think I might experience a related or the same problem:
I have a FEZ Cerbot 1.3.
I can connect an accelerometer (G248) to socket 1 and 2.
However, if I connect a gyro (I have two brand new of these and tried both of them) alone or with other modules to socket 1 or 2 (which are the sockets indicated as valid choices by the designer view in VS) the is an Exception thrown (despite having no own code accessing the gyro at all - just the constructor call is enough).
Message is "Exception was thrown: System.Exception"
No inner exception.
It is thrown by
Gadgeteer.dll!Gadgeteer.SocketInterfaces.NativeInterruptInput.NativeInterruptInput(Gadgeteer.Socket socket, Gadgeteer.Socket.Pin pin, Gadgeteer.SocketInterfaces.GlitchFilterMode glitchFilterMode, Gadgeteer.SocketInterfaces.ResistorMode resistorMode, Gadgeteer.SocketInterfaces.InterruptMode interruptMode, Gadgeteer.Modules.Module module, Microsoft.SPOT.Hardware.Cpu.Pin cpuPin)
… in the Gyro-constructor in the Gadgeteer InitalizeModules in Main.
The Version of the Cerberus board reports as 1.2 in VS 2012.
(I don’t know of course, if the Cerbot version should be the same.)
I described my setup/config in this post:
Thanks a lot!
