I just completed the basic construction of my Start Here robot and thought I would share something that drove me nuts. I searched and searched on this forum and couldn't find the answer to my problem. I found a solution burried on the Picaxe forum.
I was having the strangest problem. I could write out a simple little code and have the computer send it to the robot but when I tried to do more complex programs it would tell me that the hardware cannot be found.
