hi,

i have just finished building my cube that i was given for my birthday and everything was working great until just recently the arduino ide doesnt seem to recognise that it is plugged in i have tried this on my mac and my PC, on the mac under port it usually shows up as like incomming modem then a number now it just say a port saying bluetooth when i try to upload anything it just hangs with no TX or RX lights, when i plug my UNO in it works perfectly, i have also made sure to switch the boards to reflect the different types too what do i do :(

Hi Andrew

Thankyou for getting back to me it turns out my partner was able to rectify my issue by "reading" lol I somehow loaded a sketch that was too big and fouled up the USB connection and through some well timed resets was able to get it working again hears hoping I don't screw it up again

That's for sure only question I have is can the onboard memory fill by sending a large number of serial commands cause that's all I was doing when it decided to foul up??

You may have overfilled the buffer - there is only 2.5k SRAM to work with in total for the Cube.
