Hi,

I've been trying to get my netbook setup so that I can work on my netduino stuff away from my PC.

I have installed C# Express 2010, .Net micro framework 4.1 and the Netduino SDK from the netduino.com downloads page, in that order (as they are listed).

I am able to write my program in C#E2010 fine, but when I come to deploy to the device, It is not available in the list of options for the target. MFDeploy.exe also does not find my netduino, and it is not listed in the System -> Device Manager window.

Also, there are no 'you just plugged something in' chimes when I plug the board in, which do get on my Desktop PC (running Win 7)

My netbook spec:
  • DELL Insperon 1010
  • Intel Atom CPU Z520 @ 1.33GHz
  • 1GB RAM
  • running Windows XP Pro version 2002 Service Pack 3
  • Device manager sais that there's 3 USB and 1 USB2 ports, althugh there are only 3 physical sockets, so i think it may be that the USB2 port is shared.

two of my USB sockets have this logo Posted Image and the other one has that with one solid and one dashed line beneath it, making me thing that it's the USB2 port, as its different. That might not mean anything or not though. I'm not 100% sure how USB ports work :)

I've tryed plugging into all of them anyway, no luck.

Is there anything in this spec that would stop my netbook recognising the Netduino, any more info I can provide that may be helpful or anything that I should try?

Apart from this (and I strongly suspect its something wrong with my laptop rather than the SDK) it's a brilliant little device, and I'm having loads of fun :D

Cheers,
Matt

Hi Matt, You'll probably want to use a USB 2.0 port (although the Netduino itself runs at USB 1.1 speeds). Does your Netduino get power when you plug it in? Also, what happens if you select "refresh" in Device Manager? Chris

Hi Matt,

OK. My first thought after re-installing the drivers was that the board required USB2, and that my netbook did not have that. Although the device manager says that it does.

Does your Netduino get power when you plug it in?


The board powers up fine. I also tried powering it from it's own power supply, thinking that the USB may not be provideing adiquate power to the board.

what happens if you select "refresh" in Device Manager?

Let me try that and get back to you.

Nope, no change. Should there be a 'Netduino' entry in the device manager if it is working correctly?

Looking at the hidden devices though, I notice that I have yellow warning !'s on my 'Serial' and 'Kernal Mode Driver Framework Service' entries.

Both have the error
This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)

Thanks!

Matt, If you unplug the Netduino, does that device "go away" in Device Manager? Unfortunately...if nothing shows up in Device Manager when you plug in your Netduino (or goes away when you unplug the Netduino), there's really nothing we can diagnose :( Chris

Hi Matt,

It looks like not all devices on your netbook are installed properly. You should try to find the appropiate drivers.
On your netbook, you'll find a servicetag. Go to http://support.dell....s=04&l=en&s=bsd and click on "Enter a tag". Then fill in the service tag and all drivers are listed.

Hi Matt,

 

knew ist Long time ago, but did you solve your issue?

I am currently facing the same issue with an elderly Windows XP Notebook.

 

Best regards

Salvador
