The Arduino IDE can't find my board


Try resetting your Arduino with the following procedure:

  1. Disconnect all bits from your w6 arduino. Connect a power bit directly to the w6 arduino. Make sure the power bit is not yet on.
  2. Connect your w6 arduino to your computer with a USB cable.
  3. Open a sketch that you know works (i.e. not the most recent sketch that you uploaded that seems to have broken your w6 arduino). If you don't know of a known working sketch you can use littleBitsDemo.ino.
  4. In Arduino IDE verify and make sure there are no errors in your code.
  5. In Arduino IDE click upload and watch the blue status bar directly below your sketch and above the monitor.
  6. At first the status bar will say "Compiling sketch...". When the status bar changes to "uploading..." turn on the power to your w6 arduino.
  7. You should receive a "Done uploading" status at which point your bit will be operational.
