I’m trying to fire up a balboa robot I purchased a year or so ago on Windows 10. I’m following the User guide section 5.2 on Programming using Arduino IDE. Everything in section 5.1 seemed to go just fine (The COM port shows up in Device Manager as “Pololu A-Star 32U4”).
However, when I go to program balboa (using Arduino 1.8.12), the uploading… message just stays up for a long time until it times out. Everything else seems okay: Arduino/Tools/Board:Pololu A-Star 32U4, Arduino/Tools/Port is set to the Balboa (which says “Pololu A-Star 32U4” next to the port name), the Balboa LED13 goes from fast blinking to slower pulsing, which makes met think it’s dropped into bootloader mode, … but Uploading never finishes.
Any ideas on what to do here? I’ve already tried reinstalling the drivers, updating the drivers, restarting the Arduino IDE, replugging Balboa and restarting the computer. What else to try? Is there a chance my old Balboa board needs a bootloader update or something?
