Hi every one as you will see from my question I am a newbie. I am at a loss as to why after installing arduino software 1.6.9 my laptop is able to recognize an arduino uno R3 original not a clone and it assign a port with no issues. When I try to do the same with my Arduinomega which has the ramps1.4 shield as installed by vicious1 it does not assign a port but it continues to ask for a serial driver? The ramps board is working perfectly with the full graphic control screen (only the screen is unable to be contrast adjusted) “side issue” I am able to move the motors with no problem using the Marling contols via the screen inter phase with no issues.?? any help Please!May 13, 2016 at 1:05 pm #12180

It is a driver issue with XP. There is a driver that works but I don’t have experience with it. XP is pretty old now.May 13, 2016 at 3:35 pm #12184
