Post Cannot Program
Just started getting into robots, and my first attempt has not gone as well as planned; I am having quite a bit of difficulty programming my robot. I got the materials I needed from . It was a beginners kit, and I hoped it wouldn't be too much trouble to build; unfortunately, that has not been the case.
I installed the picaxe programming editor, along with the drivers for the usb cord which connects the board to the computer, but keep getting the same error message (file attached) saying that the hardware was not found, and I have tried with different ports and everything; resetting doesn't help either. I believe I have soldered everything adequately, as earlier I was able to connect, but not program. Now, I can't even connect, so I think that there is some other problem with the setup, and if anybody has any ideas about possible solutions I would appreciate hearing them, because I am absolutely lost.

File comment: This is the error displayed

Unfortunately, we are only able to provide support for the ROBOTC programming environment and its supported platforms (LEGO Mindstorms, VEX Robotics, etc). For this particular issue with the Picaxe microprocessor family, you may want to try the Picaxe forums ( ... 310daf53b2) for further assistance.

Check out our Blog! And our Facebook page!
