    Help - Intel Edison and Arduino IDE uploading problem


      Hi all.

      After several days trying to upload a simple blink arduino sketch into my intel Edison board, install and reinstall the drivers and all softwares several times, its time to ask here.

      I'm trying to up de sketch but I getting the following message:

      Has someone an idea about what I'm doing wrong???

      Any answer will be welcome




      Sketch uses 76,327 bytes (0%) of program storage space. Maximum is 10,000,000 bytes.

          Did you plug both micro USB as well as the external power supply?

          • 2. Re: Help - Intel Edison and Arduino IDE uploading problem



            Follow channinglin suggestion. Make sure you plug both USB cables and also use an external power supply. If you still receive the error, try using different USB cables to see if this behavior persists.

            Additionally, what IDE version are you using, what image do you have installed in your board? You can check the version with configure_edison –version. In what path did you install the Arduino IDE?

              Hi all.


              Thanks channinglinand and Intel_Alvarado for your kindly sugestions.


              Yes, I'm using a 12V, 1500mA power supply in my Edison Arduino breakout board. The problem persist after change the USB cables that I previously used on my Arduino micro board.


              At the first time when I tried to instal everything, my Norton antivirus had identified some .exe extensions from intel path as virus, but I permited all .exe manually as not virus. I felt a bit afraid about some files that had been excluded without I see, so I uninstalled everything and reinstalled using the Intel "w_iot_2015.0.028" installer, but everything are the same as you guys can see.


              The Arduino file path is:  C:\Intel\arduino-1.6.5

              The image version is: 159.

              Windows version: 10


              If nothing help me, i will change my Antivirus software, use an windows "restoration point" before the day that I started to install Intel softwares and drivers and than try everything again.


              Thanks all..

                I restarted my windows 10 laptop as default and changed my antivirus software. After this, I used the intel software and worked pretty good.


                I think that the problem was with some driver that my antivirus "got for him", Now everything is working perfectly.


                I hope this tip will help someone one day.


                Thanks everyone.
