Sparki invisible for PC


Hi everyone,

I have a problem with my Sparki. When I plug in the robot, PC can idintify Sparky only during STATUS led blinking.

After that Sparki become invisible.:pensive:

Please help me whith this problem.


Hi! I had similar weirdness when I had a program flashed that wrote to the serial port from sparki. The bytes that sparki would send to the serial port would interfere with the communication that the Arduino interface has. I had to carefully reflash ( sort of a “cold flash” using the reset button, described well on the Sparki website ) a program which did not write to the serial port at all ( like most of the examples ), and my problem went away.

Hope that helps you! Good luck!
