I have been in programming for a long time, but I am first-timer to the Robotics World.
I have ordered the FEZ Mini Kit, the kit arrived this morning. unfortunately, I have spent 10+ hours today and still could not get it to work properly. I suspect that the problem has to do with my Windows 7 (32 bits) couldnt find a workable driver for USBizi? (as it show a yellow exclamation mark on devices manager)
as the result, .Net Micro Framework could not recognize USBizi (nothing shows when I selected device=USB)
I have been doing lots of research trying to find a workable driver for USBizi, but no luck. These were what I have installed: Visual Studio Professional 2008 +SP1 (with C#), .Net Micro Framework 4.0, GHI NETMF SDK.
-Another thing seems wierd is after I reassembled the kit, the LED light keeps blinking…was that by design?)
-When I pressed the toggle button Di2 or Di4, 99% o the times nothing would happen, one awhile (rarely) one of the wheels spin…(are they supposed to spin everytime their corresponding button is pressed?)
Again, I know nothing about robotics so please forgive me for such stupid questions. but I am so desperate to get this thing works.
-Thanks in advance!
