So I just started working with the Edison Kit and I'm trying to install the appropriate software so I can get underway. However, the Edison (via arduino board) keeps connecting and disconnecting repeatedly, and seemingly at random. I don't believe its a problem with my USB ports, and all of the equipment is new. What can I do>
Apparently your Edison keeps power cycling, this usually happens because some USB ports or USB cables do not provide enough power to power the Edison board. Try with a different port or with another cable. Are you powering the board with the AC power supply? If that’s not the case, I suggest you to power the board this way so you won’t have to rely on the USB port/cable capabilities.
