So i just got an Orangutan SVP-1284 and it doesnt seem to work, so i connected a 9V battery to it, removed the screen, and i get this:
So on my windows 7 64bit machine i installed the driver, listed here: pololu.com/docs/0J39/5.a and connected my board… i got an error message stating that the board is not working correctly, because windows could not recognize it, so i went here: USB-to-Serial adapter signed driver for Windows 7/Vista installed the driver from the manufacture and it installed but now says that the device can not start.
The red LED in that youtube video is blinking in an unusual pattern, and that clicking sound is not expected. Your 9V battery was probably too drained to power the SVP properly, and so the SVP was resetting every couple seconds. I’m glad you were able to fix that problem.
Let’s focus on getting the SVP to work on one of your Windows computers because it probably won’t work on the Mac. Please plug in the SVP and post a screenshot of your Device Manager showing the entries that appear for the SVP when you plug it in. There should be three. Also, please try double clicking on them and tell me what the Device status box says.
